2016 Barrio Logan Grand Prix Race Director’s Report

I’s that time of year again and planning and preparations for the 2016, 20th Annual Barrio Logan Grand Prix are in full swing! Currently we are working hard to ensure this year’s will stand up to if not surpass, it’s outstanding reputation as one of Southern California’s premier bicycle races! Again this year we will be the SCNCA Junior Criterium Championships and part of USA Cycling’s Road Development Race Series. Plus we will feature races for Elite Men and Women, Master’s and our always popular Kid’s Races! New this year we will be having a Bicycle Safety Rodeo and the Helmet Give away at Cesar Chavez Park on San Diego Bay!

Right now we are working feverishly on raising the $6000. Cash prize list committed to this year’s race. But we need your help! If you have any leads on someone or a business who you believe might like to sponsor the race (how about you???) please give me a call. Everyone loves a race with lots of “primes”, SDBC has over 400 members, if each member acquired just one prime, this year’s Barrio Logan Grand Prix could give out 400 prime prizes!!! Primes can be just about anything: gift certificates, dinners, clothing, services, bike parts, auto parts, gift cards, cash… let’s get creative!

Speaking of needing your help; it’s time to start signing up for one of the many race day volunteer positions. Positions available are in the areas of; registration, course set-up and tear-down, course marshalling, hospitality, expo area, equipment truck driver, etc.
So if you have any ideas on sponsorship, or you want to volunteer, please give me a call (619-239-4321) or you can reach me on the World Wide Web at: Ralph@mgeracing,com

See ya at the races,
