Quiet little Pleasanton is hosting this event for some 12 hours, a crit looping thru the old downtown area: https://fastandfuriouspleasanton.com/...nt-information

The marketing of this event has been so low key, locals and many downtown businesses didn't even know why the streets were targeted for closure today until racers started showing up in town last night.

I was going to ride past that course to get my morning coffee, guess I need a new plan.

Wow, that was very cool. Especially the elite women. I think I have a crush on Team VanderKitten. Hope they do it again next year, I'll have a party.

Here you go: https://ncnca.org/event/2011/08/09/month/all/6/

I was killing myself on Patterson, maybe next year.

On a side note, really, even businesses didn't know? That is just bad organization and planning...
