PVR had a terrific turnout at the Cherry Pie Road Race with racers spread across several categories. We are pleased to announce and congratulate Jamie Cobb who came away with the win in the Men's Open 60+ category.
So I guess it's time to tell you all about our Race Win Payout Program:
Details: If you win a race your entry fee, up to $25, will be reimbursed, as will the entry fees of all PVR members who started in the same race. Payouts are based on the final, official OBRA race results.
The goal: We are trying to provide additional value to our members as well as having a way of encouraging people to get out and race their bikes. We are also hoping to highlight the fact that road racing is a team sport thus improving our results.
Inclusions and exclusions: The payout only applies to road and circuit/criterium races and only goes to racers in the same category as the winner. Beginner races are also not eligible.
So, not only is Jamie's entry fee to Cherry Pie reimbursed, but Russ Paterson also earned himself $25 since he was racing in the same 60+ category as Jamie.
We here at PV have the motto "It's All About the Ride!", but sometimes Mother Nature decides that it would be best if we all stayed at home. In the Pacific Northwest we are no strangers to riding in bad weather, but heavy fog, high winds, slick road conditions and dare we say it, snow have sometimes hampered our ability to enjoy our famous Saturday Signature Rides.
