Community spotlight: Alta Alpina cycling club slates prologue for Thursday

The first Alta Alpina Cycling Club race is set for Thursday.

The initial outing will be a prologue. Riders can use the race to determine what category they want to compete in.

The race fees this year are the same as last year: $10 for Alta Alpina Members and $15.00 for non-members. For racers under 18 the fee is $5, unless you are an ACTIVE member of the AACC JR. Team.

Punch cards are avilable. For AACC members it’s eight races for $80, $160 for the entire season (the last race is free if you purchase the entire season pass). For non-members, it’s eight races for $120 and season pass $240 (the last race is free for the season pass).

All racers please bring a filled out a race waiver to your first race; this will provide emergency contact info on site for the season and will save time at registration. There is a link to the US Cycling site on the Road Race page of AACC to download the waiver form.

Riders need to write out separate checks for membership and races.

Thursday’s race will start at Fredericksburg and Fairview lanes. Next week we will be at Diamond Valley for a short course instead of a regular course due to the cold and it still gets dark too early for a regular course.
