May 28/09 7:23 am - Communiqué: Milford-Picton Stage Race
Posted by Editoress on 05/28/09
The Poll results are in... And it is a tie! 50% of those applicable to three stages at Milford-Picton desire it to be run as a “must do all stages” and 50% want to “pick and choose” which stages they race. The interesting results of those wishing pick and choose is about 75% are planning to race both road races. Conclusion Ontario riders don't like time trials.
This year the tie goes to “pick and choose”... all participants can now choose which stages they want to enter (Picton RR is only available to certain categories).
Prizing Rule Change:
Every entrant may contest stage prizes but an entrant MUST complete* all their applicable stages to be eligible for their applicable Omnium prizing.
*If a commissaire pulls a rider, they will remain eligible for Omnium prizing, but if a rider withdraws from a race on their own accord they forfeit their eligibility for Omnium prizing.
Revised Pre-Reg Entry fees:
Under 23 years of age:
$20 per applicable stage or $40 for two stages (U17) or $50 for three stages (U19, EU23)

We suggest teams consider booking cottages. It is your best value.
