THE CATEGORY SIx Weekly world championships is a Weekly ride to nowhere. No points, no time bonus and very little glory are on the line.
Evening full gas ride. Bring your kit to work and roll out of your office ready for battle. We ride gentlemanly, socially and professionally at the start. "How's the spouse, how are the kids, How do you like that new bar tape?". Once we hit the start of River road, it's a full gas Cat 6 race to the other end. Team Tactics, shit talking, and dubious means encouraged, and POINTS ARE AWARDED FOR ETIQUETTE AND STYLE. This will be the most important race you will do all year, but riders acting like dicks will be reminded of the title of the race and will forever be ridiculed by their peers.
First to the top of alpine climb wins*. The ride fully regroups there.
We pat the winner on the back, declare our list of excuses for not having the legs that day, and roll back gruppo compacto.
The GRAND FINALE and most Cat 6 portion of the event are the recovery beers. The Ride returns to the city at an EASY tempo and lands on the patio of any place with a pitcher of beer.
