Race Calendar

Although the season is young and there remains many miles to race, one third of the one day road races are behind us.   Check this out. If you categorize "road races" as one day only races that are not criteriums, there are only 14 road races on the calendar. Most are in March, i.e., more than one third of all road races in Washington are in March By month, the breakdown is as follows:

March:
Sequims #1 and #2
Mason Lake #1 and #2
IVRR

April:
Olympic View
Longbranch

May:
Ravensdale
Vance Creek

July:
LWV#1


August:
Glennwood
Boston Harbor
LWV #2 and #3

It is true that there are road races within stage races or omniums but I did not count those.


I used to wonder why in the world there are so many races in March and none in September - in my opinion the best month to ride a bicycle. I gave up complaining because the calendar is the calendar. Lately, I kinda dig it. Let's face it, there is nothing else to do in March on crappy weather weekends.
