Below are some specific needs we currently have - 

Corner Marshals
Always our most important position!  You will provide safety to the riders, as well as awareness to motor vehicle and pedestrian traffic along the race course.  Volunteers will be responsible for controlling intersections throughout each day’s races.  Specific areas will be assigned.

Feed Zones
Volunteers to help on both Friday and Saturday. Feed Zones are areas on the course that the riders pass through and receive hand-ups in the form of water, bananas, energy gels and bars. This is an exciting area and one that the riders really appreciate.

Work with our logistics' coordinator to get the race courses, as well as the start/finish areas ready each day for racing. This will involve some heavy lifting, setting up crowd control barricades, placing cones, sweeping corners of debris, erecting scaffolding, hanging banners. It is hard work, but your efforts are very visible!!

Team Liaisons
These volunteers provide a one-on-one direct contact for the team with the race organizers, assist with race results and perform other team/event support activities.

Motorcycle Marshals
Experienced motorcyclists who have motorcycles. Motorcycle Marshals will carry photographers, video people, race officials and other key race personnel throughout the race courses. Contact Robert Brock - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Wheel Trucks
Adult-age drivers with full-size pickups trucks are needed to follow each race group on both the Friday and Saturday road races. Wheel trucks loaded with spare bike wheels follow the main pack of riders and if a rider has a flat, the truck stops and allows the rider to retrieve a spare wheel. 

Race Official Drivers
Adult-age drivers are needed to drive race officials on both the Friday and Saturday road races. You will be driving next to the action and get a birds-eye view of what racing is all about.  It's not for the faint of heart, but it's the best seat in the house!
