The Butte City Road Race

FINAL STAGE IN THE 2012 NUTCRACKER OMNIUM!

Sunday, September 23, 9:00 AM

This event occured in the past


This 36-Mile, all-flat, Road Race was used by the Chico Velo Cycling Club back in the early 1980s as part of the Chico Velo Omnium Bicycle Race. In fact, yours truly took the Junior title in this Road Race one year.....so, it's always been one of my favorites. ;) Registration will open at 8:15AM at Ord Bend Park on Ord Ferry Road(very near Hwy. 45).

Category "A" will start at 9:00AM, with Category "B" & "C" starting at 9:02AM - Masters, Women's and Junior's fields will start with Category "B", but counted separately in the Points standings. The course Starts & Finishes on Ord Ferry Road - across the street from Ord Bend Park. The course follows a clockwise direction - east on Ord Ferry, then south(right turn) on 7- Mile Lane, then west(right turn) on Hwy. 162, then north(right turn) on Hwy. 45 - and back east(right turn) on Ord Ferry to the finish line. The course is one big 36-mile loop - and all Categories will do just 1-lap. All turns will be marked with Route Arrows - and I will have ice water at the Start/Finish location.

***There will be 2 Intermediate Sprint locations during the race - one on 7-Mile Lane and one on Hwy. 45.....each worth 5-points for each Category racing.

There's plenty of parking - and bathrooms - at Ord Bend Park. For a map of the Butte City Road Race course, please visit the following link:

A FEW MORE RACE NOTES:
Most USA Cycling rules apply to these races - you know, WEAR YOUR HELMET, don't ride like a nutcase, and all that good stuff. Sandbaggers are strongly discouraged (a Sandbagger would be a Category "A" rider racing a Category "B" or "C" race - must be completely obvious to the Race Director). A mention about Tri Bars - You can have Tri Bars on your bicycle - BUT, you must NOT use them if you are in a pack or paceline during the Road Races! Normally, in a USA Cycling sanctioned race, you would not be allowed to have them on your bicycle in a mass-start event like the two road races in this Omnium - but I know many of us like them on our bicycles and use them for training. This isn't the World Championships - we do these races for fun, fitness and practice - but please do NOT use your Tri Bars in a pack/paceline situation.

HELMETS ARE MANDATORY!
HELD RAIN OR SHINE!
(50-point event in the 2012 Butte Road R.A.C.E. Series PLUS 2 Intermediate Sprints!)
(ALL Points will count towards the 2012 Nutcracker Omnium!!)
