    Prizes three deep for each age group and overall winners for men and women.

    Register for $35 beginning January 14; Registration increases to $40 on January 27, $50 on April 1 to 18, $60 on race day. https://www.bikereg.com/Net/18048

    I loved that course too, but sanctioned road events are tough up here: there are almost no local racers, outside of the college kids, so I don't have much of a customer or volunteer base, and the logistics for that event were pretty complex and expensive; I also find it really hard to get a date from CCA that is both attractive to racers and the local law enforcement and tourism community.

    Sounds like a blast. I love that part of the country too. Not sure I can pull it off this year tho. It has been on my radar for a few years. We shall see.
    The mountains are calling and I must go.

    I was just over there riding 2 weekends ago.. Boone is one of my favorite places to go. There used to be a great crit that happened there, '98-'99, something like that. I will put this on my radar for possibilites.
