TWENTY-ONE YEARS OF WISPORT RACING!


FROM THE DIRECTOR What is the Midwest Road Racers’ Handbook? For those who are not familiar with Wisport, this booklet is your guide to a summer’s worth of fun, self-imposed challenge, and friendly competition. If you live in or near Wisconsin, are a road cyclist, and would like to tune your racing legs, then have a look at the road racing events inside. The road races and time trials (RRs and TTs) are all open events and you do not need to hold a racing license to participate. If you are new to racing and uneasy about pack riding, Wisport can be a good place to start. You might want to start with a time trial, or, if you are trying your first mass start road race, you can start near the back of the bunch, and ride with smaller groups to hone your riding skills. If you are a road cyclist, but are not sure about racing, then have a look at our Great Ride Tour Series by going to www.wisport.org. The 2009 schedule includes most of last years races, and three new events. Because these events are produced by local organizations, the race schedule varies from year to year, but this years’ schedule includes 8 events that have been Wisport races for 10 years or more. These events are: Grand View Firehouse 50, Mellen Penoke Range Bike Classic, Frederic (RR and TT), Tilden Time Trial (now the Stanley TT), Greenwood Dairy Days RR, Mauston Real Wheelin Road Race, the Blue Mounds Classic, and Pedal for Proceeds in Whitewater. At least two of these races have been around longer than Wisport’s 21 years. In 2009, we inaugurate the Jim Menzel Racing Series.

Members of the JMRS (rules and application inside) will concentrate on the 11 JMRS events and compete for championship jerseys in four categories for men and women. The new Menzel competition will probably appeal to more elite riders within Wisport. Other changes for 2009, the Time Trial Series will be based on each member’s best 6 races instead of best 4. The former Tour de Wisport competition will be discontinued for 2009. Wisport will remain committed to novice and more average athletes, and this year we will add the Athena competition, and change the weight limit for Cruiser category from 200 Lbs to 220 Lbs. The people who conduct the races in the Series work very hard to provide a quality racing experience, and all race participants are expected to know and follow race rules and traffic laws and to practice good racing etiquette. Please respect the organizations that work so hard to conduct these quality events for you. As participants, we are all asked and expected to do everything possible to comply with all instructions from race officials. Wisport will support any event’s decision to apply time penalties, or disqualification for violation of rules. Rules will be stated during pre-race announcements. Thank you for your interest in and your support of the Wisport Cycling Series, and have a great 2009 season! Ken Thomson, 2009 Wisport Director

And Now a Word (of Gratitude) from Our Sponsor(ship Director) It’s cycling season again. Time for the normally obsessed to take a significant chunk of their time (like, every other weekend, at least) and drive all over the state of Wisconsin in pursuit of bicycle races. The well-seasoned Wisporter knows the drill: show up to the race 90 minutes early, warm up, race like a mad-man, cool down, and eat, drink, and be merry afterwards while waiting for the door prizes. But wait…will there be door prizes this year? Yes, there will. Perhaps not as many as in the past, but there will be prizes for a few lucky people and, as usual, a boatload of Chamois Butt’r for all (take some…please…). And who can we thank for all this? Why, our respected sponsors, of course. So the question remains: Oh, who are the sponsors in your neighborhood? In case you missed it, let me point out the main sponsors on the handbook cover. These are our main partners. But they are not the only people we have to thank. Look at the half page and quarter page ads, and know that they, also, have helped to make the season more enjoyable. However, knowing is not always enough. We need to be sure they have our personal thanks. The best way to do this is to make our presence well-known. And how do we do that? By stopping in to the local shops, just letting them know we are from Wisport, and acknowledging what they have done for us. This is all the sponsors really expect. Would they like us to patronize their shops? Probably. However, they also know we are coming from all over a three to five state area, and that is

not always possible. Yet a word of thanks will go a long way to ensuring a continuing relationship with them. I admit: I am as guilty as the next person when it comes to not dropping by and popping my head in. I could blame this on the fact that I drive from Minnesota, and have a long trip home. Yet how many of us have taken the time to go out for lunch after a race, or stopped for a tall cold one at the local bar before heading home? There is no more extra effort in locating the nearest Wisport sponsor, and stopping in to say thank you. Driving to shops might consume a little extra time; it is also in the best interests of Wisport to make our presence well-known to the sponsors. A friendly face, like a picture, can say a thousand words. And we want our faces to express gratitude towards the people and business that do so much for the sport we are passionate about. My time as sponsorship director has taught me much about the inner workings of an organization like Wisport. How generous our sponsors are is hard to comprehend until a person actually puts their finger in the proverbial organizational pie. It is also rather humbling, especially given the economic times. So, as I am able to use the written word through this handbook, I hope every sponsor can “hear” me as I say, from the bottom of my heart: THANK YOU!!! Andrea Potyondy-Smith

RACE SERIES GUIDELINES Changes for 2009: •Jim Menzel Racing Series replaces Tour de Wisport competition. •Cruiser weight increased to 220 Lbs. •Athena class replaces Flyweight class. •Time Trial Series based on 6 races instead of 4. 1. Approved helmets must be worn in ALL events. 2. Race courses are open to traffic with the exception of certain start/finish areas. All riders must obey all traffic laws including the centerline rule. Riders who are reported for crossing the centerline are subject to disqualification or time penalty. This includes cross wind situations! 3. Teams may not take unfair advantage of the centerline rule by physically blocking the entire lane! This will result in disqualifications. Traditional blocking technique is permitted. Teams: If you will be heavily represented in a race, be sure to rotate through so you will not be accused of unsportsmanlike blocking. 4. No aero bars except in time trials. No unplugged bar ends. 5. Applicant’s age on July 1 determines racing age category for Wisport points. 6. You can join Wisport at any time, but you are strongly encouraged to sign up prior to the beginning of the season calendar, or at the Wisport Friendly Century or Less/Clinic in Willard. 7. You can greatly assist the prompt calculation of points by signing up by mail, rather than in person, at an event. Signing up for Wisport membership on race day may not be possible, and doing so may result in the delay of scoring. 8. Application forms are available in this Handbook, as well as from the website. Your mailed application should reach Wisport prior to the first event in which you intend to participate. AGE 13 & under 14-19 20-24 25-29 30-34 35-39 40-44 45-49 50-54 55-59 60-64 65-69 70-74 75-79 80+

11. Team Points Challenge: The top five individual age group scores from each team are totaled for each race. These totals are accumulated for Team Points Challenge awards at the end of the year. 13. Scoring system for the road race series and time trial series: Wisport’s cumulative point scoring system emphasizes participation. Points are given to everyone finishing, based on how they finished within their age category. The running total is maintained during the season for each member. Year end awards are given out for each age category, based on total points received for your 7 best race events (using a maximum of 3 time trials) in the regular series events, and the 6 best time trial events in the time trial series. Overall total series points awards (male and female) are based on total of all (age category) Road Race Series points in all events completed. In the case of ties in any Wisport points competition, a computer generated average percentile score will be used to determine placing. 15. Tandem scoring: For scoring purposes tandems are considered to be one entry. As a result, they receive one score in the Tandem Category. Two members who wish to register as age group (single bike) riders, but who also wish to compete in the Tandem Series at certain events, may do so by taking advantage of the substantial discount for adding the tandem membership. Riders who participate in an event on a tandem, but who are not enrolled in the Tandem Series, will receive no points. 16. Optional race distances. Members may elect to race a different length race course when this option is offered by a race organizer. Wisport will treat each distance as a separate event for all points and standings. In some cases, a race organizer may offer different distance options with restrictions based upon age, gender, or other distinctions. You must comply with any such restriction in order to receive Wisport points, except that you may elect to race a course which is longer than the one intended for your age/gender group. However, if you race in multiple group starts, you will receive Wisport points for only one of these races. If the race length options are not restricted by age or any other way, a rider may freely choose to race either distance. All the distance options will appear on the website Schedule page as separate events. The schedule page may change from time to time during the season with regard to these optional distances, and there may be distance options that do not appear in the printed Wisport Handbook. If a JMRS race has optional distances, the longest course option will be the JMRS race unless otherwise specified. 17. Awards and Benefits: • Friendly competition. • Camaraderie and FUN. • Wisport member race and time trial results and cumulative points for each event you enter. • 27 events to choose from for 2009. • Weekly event drawings with prizes from our generous sponsors! • Weekly drawings for a chance to win Season End prizes. • Weekly results and standings posted on website.

9. Categories for Road Race and Time Trial Series: 10. Membership Fees •Road Race Series: Individual, $25.00; Household (2 or more), $20.00 per person; Tandem, $25.00 ($15.00 with two individual memberships; Recumbents, same as Individual. •Time Trial Series: $25.00 or $10.00 with Road Series membership. (IMPORTANT: You may sign up for the Time Trial Series without being in the Road Race Series, but time trial points do not contribute to Team Series points.) •Cruiser / Athena Category: $10.00 with Road Series membership.

• Two Team points competitions. Cash prizes. • Awards for total series point leaders for male and female. • Awards for team points total at the end of the year. • Fastest time challenges based on total number of first place finishes (male and female). • Season awards in 2 weight classes. • Awards for 56 categories in the time trial and race series.

JIM MENZEL RACING SERIES Introducing the Jim Menzel Racing Series, a new way for members to compete within Wisport. The Jim Menzel Racing Series is for the faster racers in Wisport, who are looking to compete with athletes of the same level. The Jim Menzel Racing Series will replace the current Tour de Wisport program. Cost to compete in the 12 race series will be $15.00 in addition to a regular Wisport membership for time trials and road races combined. Riders who enter the Jim Menzel Racing Series will focus on 12 Series events. They will compete for the coveted Jersey awards, which are given each year at the Wisport World Championships in Waumandee Wisconsin. At Series events, competitors will be awarded points based on how they finish in each of the twelve races.

Jim Menzel Racing Series Rules Series members will have a preferred starting position at the front of the main field. All riders will start at the same time, unless there is a preferred starting format installed by a race director, then the race will abide by those rules. Time trial starting orders will not change and will continue to be determined by the event directors. Series events will also feature a short roll call ceremony to recognize the current leaders in the series and other Wisport VIP’s in all of the fields not just the Jim Menzel Racing Series. 1. At each of the Series stages, the cumulative points will be compiled and the current leader of each jersey will be determined and announced. Points are awarded to only Menzel Series riders in the men and women’s competitions. If a rider is not in the Series and finishes ahead of a Menzel Series racer their points will not be awarded to anyone. Points are awarded for men and women by the following scale until all racers have been awarded points. Points Formula: 100 for 1st, 99 for 2nd, 98 for 3rd, 97 for 4th, 96 for 5th, 95 for 6th, 94 for 7th, 93 for 8th, 92 for 9th, 91for 10th, 90 for 11th, 89 for 12th, 88 for 13th, 87 for 14th, 86 for 15th and so on until 1 point for 100th place. Individuals finishing after 100th place do not score points. 2. Both men's and women’s points will be based on their racing within their own gender groups unless a woman elects to join the men’s division. Men cannot join the women’s series. 3. The Jim Menzel Yellow Jersey for the men and the Sharon Menzel Yellow Jersey for the women, will be determined but the total points earned from the 4 Flat races, 4 Hilly races, and 4 time trials in the Jim Menzel Racing

8

Series. Ties will be separated by most overall wins in that season then by highest average placing. 4. The White Jersey for men and women is awarded to individuals under the age of 23. It will follow the same criteria as the Yellow Jerseys. Age determination will follow rule #3 of the Wisport rules which states: Applicant's age on July 1 determines racing age category for Wisport points. An individual can win both the Yellow and the White in the same year. 5. The Magenta Jersey for men and women will be awarded to individuals over the age of 49. To enter, the person must follow rule #3 of the Wisport rules which states: Applicant’s age on July 1 determines racing age category for Wisport points. An individual can win both the Yellow and the Magenta in the same year. The winners of the Magenta Jersey for male and female in 2009 will have the Jerseys named after them. This will only be for the 2009 Season and the jerseys will remain named after those two individuals. 6. The Dar Vollrath Green Jersey for the men and the Deb Vollrath Green Jersey for the Women will be determined by total points for the 4 flat road races in the Jim Menzel Racing Series. Ties will be separated by most overall wins in that season then by highest average placing. 7. The Butch Dushack Polka-Dot Jersey for the men and the Gwen Torkelson PolkaDot Jersey for the Women will be determined by total points for the 4 hilly races in the Jim Menzel Racing Series. Ties will be separated by most overall wins in that season then by highest average placing. 9. Wisport members can sign up at anytime for The Jim Menzel Racing Series competitions, however, no points in will be given retroactively. An Individual or team status cannot be changed once entered into the series for that season. 10. The Jim Menzel Racing Series is only open to single upright bicycles only. 11. Jim Menzel Series racers will not earn regular team points, age group points, Cruiser points or Flyweight points, at Jim Menzel Series Events.

Road Racing on Open Roads Safety - Your Responsibility Varick L. Olson, PhD, PT, USACycling level 2 Coach

ALL road races are on open roads, open to all traffic, unless stated by the race director at the race start!!!! No exceptions!!! This means that all traffic laws are applicable. In Wisconsin, as in most states, the bicycle is a vehicle and each rider is responsible to obey the law. The basic reason vehicle laws work is that each vehicle operator is predictable. Each vehicle does not cross the center line. Each vehicle stops at stop signs. In the case of bicycles, only two riders abreast are allowed so motorized traffic is not delayed. Turns are signaled. It doesn’t sound like much of a road race would be possible. Yet we have the opportunity to race because local authorities and volunteers make it possible. They direct motorized traffic, provide road signs alerting drivers to “bike race in progress”, marshal corners, provide lead and follow vehicles and safe start and finish lines. We have a responsibility to race safely within this framework. To do otherwise is to risk our lives, the lives of our friends and the possible elimination of open road racing! Road racing safety is about tactics, tactics are about physical and mental skills. You must race “savvy” to stay upright and finish. If you don’t finish you can’t win. Plan your race around this concept. Find a place in the pack so you do not EVER need to

cross the center line. When you come to a right turn move as close to the center line as possible. Make your turn into YOUR lane. When you come to a left turn move as close as possible to the road edge. Make your turn into YOUR lane. Practice these skills. Practice accelerating out of turns so that you can “catch” onto a wheel quickly. Practice riding a straight line. In group rides learn how to be predictable, no quick moves. Train to be safe. If you don’t train it you can’t race it. Safety requires excellent bike handling skills. Place a water bottle on the road and practice picking it up. Learn to do this equally well from the right and from the left. Learn to make turns with minimal lean of your bike. Keep your bike perpendicular to the road and first lean your body not your bike when changing positions in the pack. The more your bike is perpendicular to the road the more control you will have. As you can see safety is YOUR responsibility. To be competitive you need to out think your opponent not just out pedal them. What are the primary goals in every race? Finish is number 1. To place is number 2.

Cross the center line and you are disqualified - or dead!!!

You have the brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. - Dr. Suess

Things Remembered: What to Bring to a Race By Andrea Potyondy-Smith

Despite my feminine gender, I am the proverbial Boy Scout: always prepared. I typically have most anything a person could need, in almost any situation, especially as it pertains to cycling. In fact, I usually have things in duplicate and triplicate. Many a time I have loaned out helmet, shoes, clothes, or energy gel for the person who “just forgot.” I have also loaned out things that a person did not even know they might need. This got me thinking: just what should a person bring to a race (or event)? If you are experienced, you pretty much already know what you need. However, if you are new to bike racing, here is a handy guide. 1) Bike: Duh. 2) Helmet: You can’t race without one, and it’s pretty stupid to bike bareheaded, as statistics concur. 3) Shoes: Make sure the pedals and cleats match, especially if you have multiple bikes with different cleat systems. 4) Clothes: Bring clothes for all seasons. Here in the Midwest, I have biked in 70 degree weather in April, and 40 degree weather in June. Be prepared for anything. 5) Biking Gloves (long and short fingered): I know a few people who do centuries without them. If you can, great. I prefer my “plush” ride—and warm fingers in cold weather. Thin stretchy gloves put over standard biking gloves are good for cool weather if you don’t want to shell out the money for “real” ones. 6) Cycling Goggles/Sunglasses: For sight in the sun, but also safety. Rock chips from a bike in front of you can “shoot your eye out, kid.” 7) Water Bottles: You need to hydrate in any weather. 8) Energy Food/Drink: If you need to eat when biking, or prefer a sports beverage to water, bring it. And always bring the same stuff that you train with. It’s great that some races give away eatables, but there is nothing worse than a belly-bomb from untried food. 9) Checkbook and Wallet: I like to have both cash and check available. You never know who will take what. And, there’s frequently that after-race charity food to be had. 10) Baby Wipes: These are a great way to get the grit off when showers are unavailable; if they dry out, just re-moisten with water before use. 11) Mini Body Wash & Small Towel: If the race does have showers but you did not know beforehand, you will be a happy camper. I know I prefer to drive home clean and stink-free. 12) Clean, Dry, Pedestrian Clothes: Dry is especially important after a cold-weather race. Clean is optional. 13) Pump: OK, so you can usually find a person with one. However, if you are ready to start racing &

10

doing long tours, you are ready to own one. 14) Spare Tubes & Tires: Some might say that a patch kit will do, or that this is excessive. Tell that to the people to whom I have given one of these. Personally, I have had heat-related “casualties” (pop!) before races, and was glad I had them on hand. Patch kits are ok for the event, but spares are better for beforehand. 15) Cyclo-Computer: It’s nice to know how far, how fast. Or, for some, it’s nice to know how much (pain) is left. 16) Toilet Paper: No, I am not kidding. Ever been in a porta-potty that has run out?

Optional Items for the Ready-to-Enter “High Society” Racer •Trainer (or Rollers): I basically use one only before cyclo-cross racing, or if the weather is going to be cold before the race starts. It just seems to warm me up better (literally). •Bike Maintenance Kit: When you get to a certain level of riding, taking care of your own gear becomes more appealing, if for no other reason than the cost of maintaining multiple bikes. I keep cone wrenches, chain whip, crescent wrench, and many hex wrenches, to name a few tools. Your local bike store can help you determine what would best serve your personal needs. The duct tape of the cycling world, electrical tape is essential. •Bike Maintenance Stand: It’s hard to work on your bike if you have nothing to get it off the ground. •Bike Stand: Not to be confused with the Maintenance Stand, this just keeps you from having to lean your bike against a tree or vehicle, or lay it on the ground when it is not in use. •Spare Wheels: Some people have “racing wheels” (carbon, aerodynamic, etc.), and bring these with to put on right before the race. Others just have a spare pair of “basic” wheels, in case of catastrophic failure—bring what you want/need. If you bring these, I recommend wheel bags of some sort. •Spare Bike: Seriously…I bring one…seriously… (but then, I drive a mini-van). •Support Vehicle and Driver: OK…who are you? Lance Armstrong?! However, there are a number of people with very supportive friends and family; it’s a great way to get them to experience the sport you love. Who knows? They may just someday want to try a race after helping out. To a few readers, this may seem like overkill. Who really needs all that, anyway? But, as my father is wont to say: I’d rather have it and not need it, than need it and not have it.


Handy (Handbook) Racing Tips A Collection of Members’ Suggestions for Racing Compiled by Nate Phelps Edited by Andrea Potyondy-Smith

Whether you are new to bicycle racing, or it is “old hat” (bike?), one can always learn a little more about cycling. Here are a few tips from fellow racers to help you on the road.

James Blodgett • Don't try to hold it before the race. • Give yourself time to get lost on the way to the race. • WiSport is for fun: stick around after the race.

Mark Brone • Practice racing before you enter a race. Learn some basic things to keep yourself as well as others safe. • Learn your strengths, weakness and tendencies in training so you can apply them to a race. • Go off the front at least once in your lifetime even it leads to going off the back.

Steve Johnson • Sign up for the race early. It will motivate you to train and create some excitement as the day draws closer. • Try and find a local cycling club, group or quality bike shop. These people are usually more than willing to discuss different races, techniques and can start you with some group rides. • Participate in group rides, they will teach you a lot about riding in groups. It will also allow you to meet quality cyclist who have raced before and can instruct you in the basics of racing. This will include courtesy, passing, drafting, etc.

Daniel Casper • Understand that really learning to race bikes is like going to college...it will take four years, at least, of hard work to graduate...and you still won't be quite ready for the real world. • Learn to read a race and your fellow racers...practice looking through the group, developing an awareness of what's going on throughout the peleton...learn to use your ears--gear shifts, breathing, changes in cadence, etc. are all potential clues. • preview a course whenever possible and make sure to know where the wind's coming from the day of the race.

David Moxness • Do not be intimidated by others’ equipment...and do not be quick to buy expensive gear. Learn on what you have. • Look to make small improvements over the season and be patient with your progress. • Pay attention to experienced riders, ask questions, watch other races.

Helmy Tennis • Try different venues (Mountain biking, crits, time trials, road races, long tours). • Talk to people of the same gender for training and racing tips. • Stay Hydrated (blame all afflictions on hydration) • Enjoy the experience and the wonderful people.

Sept 26 - WiSport World Championships & Open Races

3rd Annual WiSport World Championships & Open Races Come join us in a cycling celebration on Saturday, September 26th for our 3rd annual WiSport World Championships! Last season we introduced a new venue and again we will run all events at this new course. As most of you are aware we also opened the event to non-WiSport members. If you are a Pro 1-2-3 USCF caliber rider and would like to race for cash and prizes in your own field (WiSport members have their own race starting at a separate time) then sign up. The course will be safe but challenging featuring a 1.2 mile climb with 8-12% grades with a rolling descent included in this 13.5 mile lap event. We’ll start you in downtown Waumandee Wisconsin and after 3.5 miles you’ll have gotten on the circuit for the start of 3 laps. Those strong enough to be at the front will battle it out on the 3.5 mile flat run in to the finish in front of the throngs of people who will watch you potentially raise your arms in glory! That’s approximately 49 miles of racing for $25 and if you sign up for the Time Trial (additional $5) your $30 makes you eligible for $100’s of dollars in cash and merchandise! But wait that’s not all! If you can find two other people to go along with you in both the TT and RR you can call yourself a team and the lowest combined times from each of you from both events (yes, this is a timed event!) your team can take home an additional $100 along with some nice merchandise to boot!
