5/16/2021 - 2021 Team Somerset 85th Anniversary TT Series
Hello all. Hope you are all enjoying this nice stretch of weather as we move into a summer-like week and on to summer. I am including a communication I released to the NJ TT Cup Facebook page today announcing our events for 2021. There will not be a full TT Cup this year, but we are running 3, of our standard 4, events, as a Series and doing it in conjunction with the team's 85th Anniversary. A great long run for Somerset!!
The details are both here, on Bike Reg, and our website. As you know, these promotions don't come off without team support and it is certainly appreciated. We'll make a few modifications for Covid and post Covid, but, starting with Allamuchy, having corner marshal support is essential to the success and safety of the race.We'll do all we can to make the environment safe and as "low touch" as possible. If you are able to help out at Allamuchy on Saturday, June 26, for a couple of hours, please let me know. I will communicate details for Flanders (July 24) and Somerset TT (August 14) also, but if you know that could help for any of those, please let me know. For any of our new team members/families, happy to also connect and discuss what assisting at an event entails. Usually it is only a commitment of a couple of hours and makes our overall team approach very effective. We like to bring water, bananas, cookies and goodies for anyone there.
Look forward to getting back out and seeing everyone. We have not formalized anything to celebrate the team anniversary, as Covid took over, but we will do that and also return to a semblance of team meeting as our events begin. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, or as Joe would say, "Push Hard and Pedal Fast" and please let me know if you have any questions.
Hope all are enjoying a great May weekend as we kick into a hot summer-like week. on the cusp of summer. Just a heads up that the Allamuchy TT will go live for registration at midnight tonight (5/16). The event is Saturday, June 26, and part of our race series this year, along with Flanders on July 24 and Somerset Circuit TT on August 14. Those races will be up for registration each about 6-7 weeks prior to the event as we work through permits/approvals. It is the 85th Anniversary of the Somerset Wheelmen/Team Somerset and, without a formal TT Cup this year, seemed appropriate to run our events as part of a Series. We will handle each race individually with placing, prizes, etc, but there will be a category winner (based off of total points) for the Series. Please note that we modified the Cup categories somewhat to streamline, without compromising competition, and attraction for new riders etc. Also, since we are running Allamuchy and Somerset slightly off (later than) their calendar time from prior years, always helpful to either pre-ride. or check out the area for conditions prior to racing. More to follow on the events certainly, but wanted to give all the heads up that we are ready to roll. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and look forward to seeing you at races.
