Junior State Championships
Due to the postponement of the State Championship Junior Regionals race earlier this month, the GBRA Board of Directors have elected to reassign the Junior State Championship races for 2015. This decision was reached unanimously by all directors present at an emergency meeting on June 8th. This was not an easy decision to make, however the Board feels this change was necessary in order to provide the best possible outcome for our young racers. The following races will be designated state championship races for juniors in 2015:
We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to see you at the new State Championship races. Sincerely,
John Patterson - Coaches/Officals Rep - President
Ryan Collins - Rider Rep - Secretary
Betty Hodges - Representative At Large
Jeff Clayton - Promoters Rep
Mike Barman - Velodrome Rep
Junior Regionals Postponed
The Junior Regionals race scheduled for this weekend have been postponed until the weekend of August 8th and 9th. GBRA has received the following message from race promoter Eric Broadwell:
"After discussions with USA Cycling, Georgia Cycling and our promoters we felt this weekend’s scheduled Regional and State Junior Cycling Championships would be better served allowing more time to bring a quality experience and allow more participants to plan their scheduled races. Therefore, we are postponing the race until Aug 8 & 9 and plan to use the same courses developed for this weekend. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused..."
