Last year I wrote about how it costs, $10,000 to put on a relatively small, simple, industrial park criterium. Well, guess what? Expenses seem to go up every year. I have no qalms about sharing these expenses. In fact I thinks its important that racers know how much it costs. The fact is, that the costs to put on this race has gone up by ~40% since I have been invloved. By far the biggest expenses are insurance, USCF officials, traffic control, and prize money.Through 2011 we have been able to leave the entry fees the same, however next year they will likely go up.
