Saturday's (Nov 3) East Bay Race Cancelled

I haven't updated the Calendar yet, but Bob L wanted to make sure everyone knows that Saturday's East Bay race has been cancelled.

As the BASP cross races grow in size and popularity, perhaps they should grow a bit in terms of quality. The Mclaren Park course and venue were a bit on the low end for a $30 dollar race (times 5 for the series). I never saw any toilets, except the ones in the park building on Moscow. Something close to the start area would have been nice, since that is where everyone was warming-up and hanging out.
The course was great if you were selling tubular tires for a living. It was on the short side, more of a mountain bike course, not necessarily in compliance with UCI rules.
Parking was very difficult and many people received citations. Is there any thought given to these concerns when selecting venues? Perhaps this is the best they can do.

UCI compliance rules??? you have got to be joking?

low end for a 30$ race?

dude each race should be $40 or more, for all it takes for promoters to put events on, and you should tip the registration people 10$ for helping you, so that is 50$ right there, and so you are getting a deal at 30$

I really think you should pay a extra 20$ complaining fee for being bitter and too negative, so you are up to 70$ total now, so your 30$ fee was a steal.

Courses will be different, races will be different, and if you expect more, then you need to go out and organize all the stuff yourself, and build a UCI legal course, do all the labor and hard work of set up and take down, get bathrooms there, and when they get dirty, clean the bathrooms yourself, and then you know what you will get for your return for all your time and effort and cleaning dirty bathrooms??

you will get a post like yours, from some complainer, complaining about what you did in your effort in trying to put a race on.

You should go into a race with no expectations except to suffer, and if you do not suffer enough, then it is your fault.

and never, ever forget to have fun, no matter what the price of entry, lack of bathrooms, length and non UCI compliance to course specs, or lack of proper free parking or no vallet service you might face on race day.

I raced, had fun, suffered, paid the same entry you did, and am now looking forward to doing it all over again for the next weekends NCNCA Cup race.

see you there

Sorry, I fail to see what this has to do with the canceled East Bay race.
