Over the last several years there has been a fledgling racing scene brewing in Irvine. The Great Park Racing series is back for 2013 and is a great opportunity for experienced and relatively new cyclists to get out and race. The series is on Thursday nights at the Great Park in Irvine. Categories are Pro/Cat 1, 2 and 3 and Cat 3, 4 and 5. If you’ve never raced a bike before, you’ll be in the Cat 3/4/5 race. If you ride a bike like Kevin Costner in American Flyers or Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Premium Rush, you’re going to want to hit the Pro/Cat 1/2/3 races. The races are set up as a point series and should be a lot of fun. Are you a poor bike handler who wears silly helmets (triathlete)? Come on out, there is also a time-trial point series!
The excitement kicks off Thursday, March 7 and continues weekly throughout the summer. Even if you don’t plan on being the next big name in the Tour de France, sans performance enhancing drugs, it should be a great time for the competitive or amateur athlete.
