New England Development p/b Cadence Wealth Management is excited to be continuing the tradition of Wells Ave!
The Wheelworks Spring Series is the perfect opportunity to blow the dust off and tune up for road racing season. Week to week there will be primes provided by Orbea, Wheelworks, and some traditional muffin primes too.
All A catergories will race as one field. Separate podiums for men, women and juniors will be recognised when there is a minimum of 6 entries in a given category. The same for the B and C races. As always, the C race is intended for beginners, does not provide upgrade points and is limited to Novice riders. It you are capable of riding the B race, then the C is not for you. Similarly the B race is not a warmup for the A race.
Tired riders in the A race is not a good situation. Please pick one or the other.
C-race mentor support for will be provided by Best Buddies.
The volume of traffic coming to Wells Ave. on Sunday mornings has increased over the past few years. Businesses are familiar with our event since it has been there longer than any of the tenants! As with any bicycle race, especially a training event, your safety is paramount. We have a staff of marshals to keep traffic flowing in the proper direction. You are still required to pay attention, be courteous, and keep your eyes peeled for cars on the course. If one should appear in front of the field the field is neutralized until the car exits the course. DO NOT PASS THE CARS, we do not care if there is a break up the road. If there is a car on the straight during a prime or finishing sprint, the sprint will be neutralized and the prize will be delayed one lap.
Poor sportsmanship, foul language, unsafe riding or violence WILL NOT be tolerated at Wells at all. The Chief Official has the right to remove a rider from a race or Wells Ave. that he/she feels demonstrates any of these conditions. Any rider that is removed from Wells Ave. will be reported to the USA Cycling Regional Director.
Minimum prizes for A and B for three places ($30/20/10). There are also primes awarded in the A and races. All USA Cycling rules apply, including use of approved helmets, jerseys with shoulders and NO Aerobars are allowed.
* Race schedule applies to most weekends, except when conflicts exist. In the event of a conflict, an altered schedule will be decided on the day of the race. The race director reserves the right to cancel races for any reason.
