Important Changes to the Midwest Regional Masters Championship

There are some important last minute, and necessary changes to the Midwest Regional Masters Championship.  Due to a misinterpretation of the rules by myself, BigDave, part of the structure of this event has to be changed.  Unfortunately, and yet fortunately, the mistake was caught recently and able to be corrected with little effect to the overall spirit and character of the weekend of events.  Please read the MRMC Flyer Addendum to get the full details of the changes.  We did our best to restructure the event while causing little change to the riders.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Sincerely,

David “BigDave” Riemenschneider

Owner, BigDaveSports, LLC

Ever Wanted to Work a Bike Race?

If you’ve ever thought about how much fun it would be to work a bike race, here is your opportunity.  Below is an e-mail I sent to my database of race volunteers, but this event is bigger than even my usual crew can handle.  You can find some of the “Job Descriptions” on the Volunteer (now called Employment) page of this website.  If you are able to help at this event, please contact me, BigDave, at bigbikerdave@gmail.com.

OK All, my next big event is the Midwest Regional Masters Championship to be held Saturday, July 23rd in Cleves and North Bend, OH and Sunday, July 24th in Aurora, IN.  Here is the RACE FLYER if you want to read along.  I am going to need a small army of people to make this happen, so please be greedy with the number of positions and time slots you want.  This event will be bringing in riders from the 12-state Region defined by USA Cycling.  I already have one rider registered for all 3 races coming all the way from South Dakota.  My target attendance for this event is 200-250 riders per stage, or 600-750 for the entire weekend.  Here is what I need: More >

2011 Race Preview Guides are on their way!

If you participated in a BigDaveSports event in 2010, you or your household should be receiving the 2011 Race Preview Guide in the mail within the next week.  This will give you a quick reference guide to all of the events BigDaveSports has planned for 2011.  There are a few other events being discussed, but they are much smaller events and will most likely be more localized to the Cincinnati, OH area.  You’ll be able to catch information on those events here on our website and through facebook.

If you aren’t on our mailing list, here is the PDF file for you to download and print for your own use or to pass on to a friend:

March is just around the corner!

BigDaveSports Gives Back

As the races and events are being organized for 2011, BigDaveSports is working in several programs that will give back to the community and help build the future of the sport.

First, in the Kentuckiana Spring Race Series, with the help of various sponsors, entry fees for Category 4 (beginner) Women will only be $5 with no late fees.  This is in an attempt to get more women out to try bike racing.  In addition, through the same sponsors, the top 3 Category 1/2/3 Women will have the same prize payouts as the top 3 Category 1/2/3 Men.  Though the fields are not equal in size, this offers equal rewards to the women who put in the hard work to reach the podium in their race.

For the kids, we have two programs in the works.  First, at the Devou Park Summer Race Series, we are arranging to have a food vendor at all of the races, selling freshly grilled foods and then donating a portion of their sales to the Lionhearts Junior Racing Team.  These kids are the future of the sport and have a great opportunity with the Lionhearts.  We need to make sure they have the support the need to keep their program going.

The other program in the works will be part of the Midwest Regional Masters Championship Event.  This event will be a unique 3 races in 3 states on 2 days to award 4 championships to riders from 12 different states across the Midwest.  BigDaveSports will be donating $1 from each race entry to help needy children obtain school supplies.  Sponsors will also have an opportunity to help with this program by agreeing to do either a “Match”, “Match with Cap” or “Flat Donation”.  Riders will also have the option to make a donation of their own when they register for the event.  With an expected 700+ registered riders for the weekend, this program could easily bring in a couple thousand dollars just in time for the start of the 2011-2012 school year.
