Weekend wrap-up: Our first podiums in 2010, and Crit Registration Notes

<b>Our first races and our first podiums (podia?) in 2010!</b>

A Half Acre Cycling crew rolled down to Springfield for the Tour de Groundhog and had some amazing results.  Three riders lined up, three riders got cold, wet, and slushy, and three riders hit the podium.  Jacob Thom took 3rd in the Juniors, Al Thom took first in the age group and overall masters, and <a href="http://www.benlikesbikes.com">Ben Popper</a> won the senior race.  Jacob promises us a race report, so stay tuned for that!  And, <a href="http://www.sj-r.com/news/x640759620/Video-Tour-de-Groundhog-attracts-120-bicycle-racers">check out Jacob on the local news.</a>

<b>Women's 3's, where are you?</b>

We still have only two women's category three riders registered.  Unless we reach at least 5 or 6, we will have to think about either cancelling the 3's participation or collapsing into a 3/4 race.  Please, don't let this happen.  This is a cheap, fun way to train for the season-- c'mon out!
