30Re: Cross Summary Letter
- Jan 5, 2004Hi Matt,
Earlier today I faxed to you our inscription form for a Bio Wheels
event - we are looking at securing the Sunday Oct. 10th date for a C3
event in Cincinnati. There does appear to be a C3 race in Portland
on same day, but in looking at the current schedule it seems that
conflict is inevitable at some point. I spoke with Robert this
afternoon in regards to his Michigan race the previous weekend, and
we felt like it would be possible to at some point combine our events
on the same weekend for UCI travelers. There is an approximate 5 1/2
hour drive between Detroit and Cincinnati (doing the speed limit).
Any thoughts (anyone) on the likelyhood that racers would be
interested in doing the double with that amount of driving between
events on the weekend?
