Bike Race Announcing:

An example of my announcing

actually, i dont do this anymore. my last event was diamond derby 2013. it is unlikely that you can talk me out of "retirement" to announce your bike race, but you are welcome to try. it is simply too physically demanding for me, as i indeed go well over-the-top to share my well-known extraordinary enthusiasm for bike racing with my fellow fans. thanks to the many of you who shared my joy as i shouted into a microphone with that solid rock 'n roll blaring over my failing voice. especially thanks to all the racers whose efforts on the bike made my job as announcer way too much fun.

    Events far enough from my home base in DC may require additional travel expenses.
    Certain events may require additional staff or equipment and may require additional fees.

    Your race will greatly benefit from my consistency behind the microphone. I will help make all of your races exciting, and my dedication will bring an additional level of professionalism and exhilaration to your event.

    I come early and stay late. I am amongst the first people on site and and I keep the tunes going until amongst the last of your volunteers are done working.

    I announce the whole day. I pay special attention to the lower categories that can sometimes actually make up the bulk of your constituency. I keep the action exciting for the spectators during all races, and I actively encourage all racers regardless of their placings. And of course I make sure to follow all categories on the course with a detailed eye so I can call the top finishers. I know the top stars and their careers in detail, and come prepared to do credit to the national level racers. I learn the racers in advance, their placings in various series from this season and past years. I learn the teams and their charities, and pepper that information throughout the day. I come prepared with several sheets of information for each race.

    I am attentive to sponsors, supporters, volunteers, making sure they hear their names on the sound system consistently and within the flow of the races.

    I can play my own musical selections, usually up beat rock and roll, or can tend towards any musical feel the promoter prefers.

    I bring all of my own equipment, and require no help from the organization to set up or take down, or to run the announcing tent. I bring back-up equipment and am constantly upgrading to ensure that I have non-stop sound for your event. I even bring my own power.

    You want your bike race to reach the next level. So do I. My announcing will help get you there.
