Tour of Fairbanks Still Need Race Director

We have had a lot of inquiries about the 2018 Tour of Fairbanks 5 Stage Race.  The FCC Board has set tentative dates in June; however, we have yet to secure a race director for this event. Without a race director, the event will be cancelled for a second year.

How can you help?

Spread the word that we are still recruiting. FCC is offering a $2,000 stipend for a person or team willing to coordinate all 5 stages.  This includes determining the courses for a Prologue, 2 Road Races, a Criterium, and a Time Trial; acquiring permitting, promotion, and updating existing race information. Specific terms are available in the TOF Contract, which you can download here.

Time commitments vary through out the process. Early in the process it may take only a few hours per week, with more hours required as race day approaches. Much of this depends on the efficiency of the race director.

Additional questions can be emailed to Rachael Kvapil, FCC Prez, at prez@fairbankscycleclub.org
