"Unattached" racing cyclists in Northern California will have an opportunity to shop for a club for the 2005 season at the 'Meet The Teams Day', to be held at the Early Bird Criterium on Sunday, January 23 in Fremont, California.
Meet The Teams Day organizer, Geoff Gunderson of the Cycle Sports/ Trumer Pils Racing Team said, "We're really excited about how many local racing clubs will be taking this opportunity to promote their programs, recruit new members, and kick off the 2005 racing season." The event will include over twenty Northern California cycling clubs and teams, including several squads for women, masters, and juniors.
This Sunday’s Early Bird Criterium will be the fourth of five such events, held Sundays through January 30. The first race, for Category 4 riders and Category 5 riders with experience in five or more races, begins at 9:00 AM. A mentoring session for new racers is scheduled for 10:00 AM, followed at 11:15 AM by racing for Category 5 riders with experience in fewer than five races.
