WA State Masters/Juniors Championship Road Race

Sunday June 28th, Spokane

Registration is open for the Four Mound Prairie Road Race. This is the 2009 Masters and Juniors state championship road race. The course is a variation of an old Spokane favorite with a nice climb, gentle rollers, and quiet country roads. There will be six Masters fields, four juniors fields, and a non-championship elite category 4/5 field.

More information:

Online registration:
http://www.bikereg.com/events/register.asp?eventid=8417

It will be a great weekend of racing in the Inland NW. The Masters Criterium championship is also in Cheney on Saturday the 27th.

You can also email spokanerocketvelo@gmail.com for more information.

Hmm, sounds like fun, thanks for posting!

So can anyone get into the Cat 4/5 race?

Just wondering since it's the "Elite 4/5" category on the flyer. I'm a new Cat 5, but certainly not yet "elite." =]

that's a common question. By USA Cycling definition, Elite = "Senior" = anyone who is not a Junior or a Master. So yes, you certainly qualify for the category 4/5 elite race. Out of curiosity, have you been racing the Twilight Series?

Ah, finally "elite" makes sense. Thanks!

So far I've only done 7 races, 6 at Seward Park and then Ballard last weekend. I have yet to race on that side of the mountains, but would like to.

I'll apologize for the thread hijack upfront -

Mattm - is there a typical or standard date and time for the races at Seward Park? I'd love to take my daughters to watch the event.

Thanks and good luck!

I might try to make it out there for that weekend. Just coming back from an injury (from a different sport) and trying to build my race legs these next few weeks.

Do we have to pre-register? Also, is the race hotel still available? or should i start considering host housing? I'll be racing the A's.

I just heard word that the host hotel is sold out. Try calling around to some other hotels in the area. We do have host housing available. Email spokanerocketvelo@gmail.com if you're interested...cya
