This Saturday (8th) sees the unfortunate occurrence of having two crits in Indianapolis on the same day. There is an USAC race in Brookside Park and an ABR race in Eagle Creek Park. This seems crazy to me and from my perspective it's part of efforts to undermine any race that Dan Daly puts on but I may be somewhat biased toward the ABR race as am a friend of Dan Daly and don't know Matt Jourdan (organizer of Brookside Park). Dan Daly and the Indiana Race Series have been putting on races in Indiana for over 10 years and although Dan is not a perfect organizer he has been a consistent supportor of bike racing in this State where many other race organizers have come and gone.
A comparison of the events-
Where- Brookside Park, Eagle Creek Park
Affiliation- USAC, ABR
Licence Needed?- Yes ($10 one day for Cat5), No (included in entry)
Cost- $30-$35 (cat1/2), $30
Cat1/2 Prize- $750, $500
Masters Prize- $100, $400
Cat 3 Prize- $0, $400
Cat 4 Prize- $0, $300
Women Prize- $100, $200
People always criticise Dan Daly for his poor prize-list but you decide for yourself.
On Sunday 9th there is an ABR Monrovia 40km Time Trial
