Welcome to Velo Promo!
Well, Easter Sunday, and this year no relaxation after a hard fought Copperopolis Road Race. In fact, no Copperopolis RR at all, for the first time since 1982. This COVID -19 thing is causing a lot of cancellations and postponements, including our own Wards Ferry, Santa Cruz and Copperopolis, and in all likelihood, Regalado and Leesville as well. (Watsonville in July is still up in the air, but unlikely). In addition, most group training rides (emphasis on the non-social-distancing word group) are in abeyance, and should be.
A lot of races and other events are jockeying for position in the few dates left in the fall, presuming that the virus threat will have subsided, but there aren’t that many open dates, and many races (like Copper) are just waiting for next year.
The crew at Velo Promo hopes that you are able to self-isolate and to train when possible, and stay in mental and physical shape for the eventual end of restrictions and resumption of a life something like normal. We plan to be back when the dust lifts.
Stay well, wash your hands, and take heart, there will be bicycle racing again.
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
