Keep Raceday Transport in mind if you happen to need bike and race gear transport to Avia Wildflower in 2012!  Contact Andy Oros for transport coupons!

(916) 778-7473


Some of the great Raceday Transport Options:

Fully Assembled Bike Transport—No disassembly required.  We prep and pad all delicate bike components and each bike is transported in its own padded bike rack.  We deliver your bike “Ready to Ride.”

Bike and Race Gear Transition Area Pick-Up—This is an option where we go in and collect the athlete’s bike and race gear from the transition area during the event.  It allows the athlete to finish their race and enjoy the event without the hassle of worrying about their equipment. Very popular.

Box and Ship to one of our Regional Locations—This is an option for athletes to box and ship their bikes to one of our Regional Locations (closest to the event).  We unbox and assemble your bike and then transport it fully assembled to the event.  After the event, we disassemble and pack your bike and then ship it off to your home.  This option does not include UPS or FedEx shipping charges.

Airport Shuttle Service For Box and Ship Customers—This is an option for athletes that cannot utilize our fully-assembled transport service but still provides an option to taxi their bike boxes from the host airport to their event.  Saves on extra-large rental cars or expensive taxis.  Reservations are required for this service.

VIP Program--Have friends or family joining you for this event?  Your team might be interested in our VIP program where we have athlete’s friends and family assist us in the booth.  After the event, we provide them with a $100 transport gift certificate.  All transport gift certificates are fully transferable so they can pass them on to anyone they like.  It’s a great way for friends and family to plug-in to the event and at the same time earn future transport coupons for themselves or others.  If interested, contact our Events Director, Andy Oros @ andy@racedaytransport.com for more details.

Raceday Loyalty Program

When you purchase two or more Raceday Transport services in a 12-month period, you will receive an additional $20 discount that can be combined with your Tri-Group savings, plus, space preference on a future race.

Congrats everyone! A delayed reponse, getting use to this website. Forgot how tough this course was! It was a good day and very cool meeting Jesse who took first place. What a humble guy

Wildflower Recap


Here's my race report.  Man, the convoy and the 18 wheeler scared the crap out of me.  Saw someone being helped with a broken collarbone, and heard of someone running a disc getting lifted off the ground by the wind blast from the truck as well.  Worst winds over the past 3 years!  Couldn't let myself go all out on the back side of Nasty Grade.  Great day of racing though as long as you could control yourself.

That happened on Sat. too. I had chickened out on biking down Lynch the first two years but did it this year. As I was thinking "that wasn't bad at all, what was I worried about?" I rounded the corner to 3 ambulances and a guy being pulled over the guardrail that he's managed to flip over.


3 cyclists were taken out at once on Jolan when a semi drive by in the other direction as well.

It is very common for a few athletes to "bite the pavement" on the backside of Nasty Grade where strong crosswinds hit deep rims/discs on a high speed descent resulting in loss of control. On Sunday there was even a serious crash on the pilgrimage to transition in the morning.  We were held up half way down Lynch Hill while an ambulance took the athlete away.  Their race was over before it started :-(.

It was definitely hot! I thought I might die of heat stroke packing up my tent. ;)

Marie - Nice!  Sounds like a fun way to spend a weekend to me.  It was definitely breezy on Saturday.  I prerode the Oly course to loosen the legs and noticed a solid north wind.  Sunday was less windy but warmer.  Since my wave didn't start until lunchtime (ok, actually 10:45) it was starting to get kind of warm when I was running.  Not complaining, though...I've raced there in 100 degree heat.

Also, I hope no one here were in any bike crashes on Sat. There were far too many!
Comment by Marie Hughes on May 2, 2011 at 8:36pm
I was happy until I came home and realized I did the bike 20 min. faster last year. But of course it wasn't windy last year either. I did the swim and bike of the Long course and then just turned in my chip. (I tried to find someone to run for me but wasn't able to.) But Tri-cal didn't charge me more for switching! It was a good workout and I enjoyed hanging with my friends and getting away from work.

So....How was it for everyone?  I had a good day in the Olympic.  Solid swim, great bike, run better than expected on healing foot and undertrained body.  Snagged 2nd in my AG (50-54), 10th fastest overall female bike split, close to mixing it up with some big guns on the bike :-).
