For those riders not in school there are a number of racing opportunities that are relatively close to Bloomington. The details of these race series are now being published and although the racing is starting later than usual and is of lower quantity than usual, the quality of the races appears to be maintained.
Most notably is the McDonalds Kentuckiana Spring Cycling Series whose website has recently gone live. The first race in the series is at Long Run Park close to Louisville on March 15th.
Dan Daly at the Indiana Race Series also has some April races in the popular venues of Ceraland Park in Columbus and Pioneer Park in Mooresville, both of which are within 45min drive of Bloomington. As I understand it there will be a cheaper entry fee for students in these races ($20)
Finally and a little further afield is the Torelli Spring Series whose races are in Ohio. The organizer (Tym Tyler) is also giving some financial incentives for people to go and race-
From Tym- '09 Torelli Spring Classic opens up on 02/28 with the Frosty Toes Classic. If you and your team /club mates come out with 4 riders the 5th ride is FREE. Also if you have been laid off in the last couple of months, come on out and race for FREE. If you are a Junior come on out and race for FREE. If you pre-reg the cost is $18 and $25 the day of the event. If the weather is bad and we cancel, we can do a full refund or a roll-over to another event.'
