Welcome to Velo Promo!
Riders, Officials and other Friends:
Given the continuing issues with Covid 19 here in California, and given State and local health and other county and city agencies’ mandates and advisements, Velo Promo feels it has no choice but to cancel the remainder of our racing season for 2020, and hope for a better year and a return to racing in 2021.
We have one possible exception, the Athlone TT scheduled for Sept 5, south of Merced. Merced County has not yet given us a permit for the race, but if they do, we think we can operate the race under the guidelines and with the safety and health of all concerned. (It will take the cooperation of everyone to make it work, including early pre-entry only, and we may need to cancel a week ahead if the numbers indicate that riders don’t want to gather and race under current conditions and restrictions).
The 12 racing days we have had in 2020 (Early Birds, Cantua, Pine Flat, Snelling, Merced and Madera) may be all that we can do this year, and we are sorry that we cannot do our other 18 planned events. If we can financially survive until next year, we plan to be back with all 30 race days (including Santa Cruz, Copperopolis, Patterson Pass, Dunnigan, Winters, Il Giro, Oakland and the rest) on the Northern California Schedule in 2021.
Thank you for your support of, and participation in Velo Promo’s races since 1978.
Individuals have always supported Velo Promo races; now it’s time to get companies and corporations involved. We need to raise money via sponsorships for many of our most popular races. Everyone in the sport is or knows someone in a company to approach to get them involved in sponsorship of a category, or a race, or a series of Velo Promo races in Northern California.
All we are asking is to get the names and contacts of the right (and ideally interested) people to contact in Northern California companies. Many of you have enjoyed Velo Promo races for years, and we like to think we’ve added something to the sport in this area. We’ve had one company this past year join in (thank you Darren Mar-Elia and SDM Software!), but we need several more if we are to continue our program of races. Please contact us as soon as you can.
Thank you, ----Robert Leibold
