The Tri Flow Menlo Park Grand Prix Criterium presented by Velo Girls and Hawk Relay takes place Sunday, March 8 in (where else?) Menlo Park. Registration is filling up fast for both men's and women's races, with cash prizes for women's races and merchandise for other categories.
Race organizer Lorri Lee Lown is taking applications for podium boys. Qualifications: "Must be hot and willing to wear white shorts," says Lorri, and "Podium boys absolutely must kiss winners. On the cheeks."
For your chance to get up close and personal with the likes of winning cyclists like Liz Hatch, contact Lorri for a personal interview.

USA Olympic MTB and cyclocross rider Georgia Gould addressed the podium boy subject recently:
Podium boys are exceedingly rare. I brought up the lack of podium boys after Emilia Fahlin's win in Santa Rosa two weeks ago, so I like to think I might have had some influence on Lorri's decision to seek some out ;-)
funny! we've had podium boys in the past as has Velo Bella. we'll actually have podium boys and podium girls at Menlo Park -- mostly our fabulous sponsors. now, let's see if I can get them to wear hot pants!!!
