Re: Are out of towners allowed to race?

some people just run the course(s) and don't race to win. the reason is that the race happens mid-afternoon in city traffic. the winner usually circumvents a few laws (runnign red lights, wrong ways down one way streets, etc). people have gotten tickts, or even crashed (nothing really major ever, thank god).

so a lot of people just run the course, knowing they're probably not going to place, but wanting to at least do better than average (top 12-15 or so). in terms of the race ... the "big names" have traditionally been:

bill babbitt (puch)

simon (motobecane)

dan (minarelli)

dave brzezicki (minarelli)

miguel (minarelli)

caleb (minarelli)

xbrandonx (vespa/puch) -- from janus

tom (tomos) -- from blue shirt holiday

chad (puch)

other potential contenders this time around (and previously) are:

ana (minarelli)

sarah (sachs)

jake (sachs)

getting in the top 5 is a big deal. the race is a bit stacked against the out-of-towners, but we usually try to show people around the route before the race. and some out-of-towners have placed before (tom has taken third twice).

dave brzezicki has won the last two times in a row, upholding the winning team minarelli tradition. he's hoping for a three-peat.

ps.

there will also be a drag race later for bikes that have speed kits. that's just on a straightaway .... so any moped w/ more than 50cc has a good chance.
