Now that I’ve had a day to rest, (not really went to Wilkesboro and raced) I would like to thank everyone who helped with the UCI race. It can’t be done without the help, and dedication of many people, and they did an awesome job. We also can’t do it without the racers! Thank you all for racing with us in Kingsport.
I want to make some changes to next years race, like a better race schedule for the USAC races. However, the main change is adding Elite Juniors. We hear it said all the time “Juniors are the future”. We hear it so much it has almost become cliche. Even so, it is still true. We have a lot of young riders within a short driving distance to Kingsport, and I would like to give them the opportunity to race a UCI race in Kingsport. Adding Elite Juniors will add another $1000.00 or so to the prize list. So, long and short, if you are interested in sponsoring a junior race, or have a suggestion for a sponsor, let me know! Thanks again for all the hard work and hard racing, you are the hardmen and women of cycling.
