Welcome to Velo Promo!
It looks like the health issues surrounding covid19 will force the cancellation of this year's Copperopolis race. We plan to bring it back on its usual day-before-Easter date in 2021. Hopefully things will ease before Regalado, Leesville and Watsonville and the Cal Cup in the coming months, and the racing season can get a fresh start.
Santa Cruz Classic Criterium
Due to the Coronavirus issues and state and local guidelines, the Santa Cruz Classic Criterium has been postponed, ideally to Sept 13, subject to the city of Santa Cruz.
The issues surrounding the virus are too important to ignore, and the health of riders, spectators and the general public all weigh in on this decision.
Wards Ferry Road Race
Wards Ferry Road Race is cancelled for now. We may be able to conduct it later in the year on a date by itself, but 25 riders won't cover even a portion of the expenses for the race.
Right now we'll keep Wards Ferry entered riders on the books for a later date, but those who wish to withdraw from this before this Saturday will get a refund (or a credit on their credit cards). Please send an email to to take advantage of this. Once we have a new date, you can still get a credit/refund via the same process, if that date does not work for you.
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
