The New England Bicycle Racing Association (NEBRA) will hold its second annual awards banquet in January to recognise regional racers who excelled in the national road and cyclo-cross seasons. Daniel Manibal, the president and promoter of the Montreal world cup, the new Le Tour Montréal Boston UCI race, as well as the Tour de PEI and Le Tour du Grand Montréal stage races will give the keynote address.
The banquet will take place on Saturday, January 13, 2006 from 5:00 to 10:00 PM at the Best Western Royal Plaza, Fitchburg, Massachusetts "The New England bicycle racing scene is alive and growing and the competition this year has been intense," said George Gantz, President of Fitchburg Cycling Club which is hosting the event this year.
