Recently we caught up with race promoter, Keith Harper and Donna Shaw and talked to them about the 2010 North Boulder Park Classic Race. For those who may be new to cycling or the state, learn more about the long great history the North Boulder Park Criterium Race has.
[303Cycling] North Boulder Crit has a new name, new website and new face behind the curtain, tell us what big changes will we see in 2010?
Well, for one the race has a new title sponsor -- Flatiron Subaru. In addition we have a bunch of supporting sponsors who have stepped up to sponsor the individual races. For instance, Juwi Solar is sponsoring the Women's Pro-1-2-3 race and The Pro's Closet is sponsoring the the Men's Masters 35+ race. Each category (10 races) has a sponsor. It's been great! The response from the business community has been really positive. This means there's actually a decent cash prize list for each race which I'm really psyched about. Every category deserves a good race and a good race has a respectable prize list! Oh, and primes -- There'll be lots of prime sprints in each race -- the prime prizes are pouring in from the business that missed out on primary sponsorship.
Also, we're raising money for the Davis Phinney Foundation and Bikes for Humanity -- two really important non-profit organizations with ties to Boulder and the park itself. (Here, watch Davis win at NBP in this video).
[303Cycling]This race has a great spectator history but the last decade it has become more of a racers race, will you all be doing anything special to cater to spectators?
