Women racers needed. Sept 24, Smethport, PA 53 Mile Race
A) We are not begging for women racers. We are advertising. I
that there are many quality women racers out there. We just want them
to find their way to Smethport, McKean County September 24.
We need male racers also. I know that there are more than 9 male
racers out there also willing to go the 53 mile course.
B) Most people are opting for the 15 mile fun ride which does not
offer a purse.
C) We have set up a very cool 53 mile circuit race with about $1500
when including lap premiums divided equally M&F top five places.
D) No licenses are required. This is not an officially sanctioned
race. This is our first year (since the 1890s) following the old,
traditional race course. Olean Cycling Club members are assisting us
with race details, race software, digital finish photography, etc.
E) Race Course: Even though our region is hilly/mountainous (and
beautiful)race course is very flat with only extremely mild, Illinois
F) Road surface is not perfect but pretty good. Paved. We are
sweeping key corners and hay bailing, etc. We cross over Galico
Bridge which is very old but solid and somewhat cordurouy. There are
some 90 degrees turns on the course and on that is about 110.
G) We desparately need WOMEN competitors in the 53 mile race. Right
now we have ONE ENTRY in the women's category. Please pass the word
around with any contacts or friends that you might have to come to
Smethport and compete in our 53 mile race for the purse & gold watches.
H) It is really important that we have competitive entries so we can
solicit prize money in the future and make the race grow. We have an
identity problem because we are a new (well, at least not since the
1890s) race and we are from this little (cool) town.

Cost of entry is $25 and includes a very cool t-shirt:
J) Anyway, please pass this message around to your friends and
contacts. We need more than 9 racers!
K) We just posted (today) a "where to stay" link on the Planet
Smethport site which will be helpful:
Thanks so much,
