I think this would be a great race to open our season with but we don’t have a lot of time to plan the details, it is also the only race I’ll get to run in with you guys this season so I hope we’ll be able to find a way to get there.

Talk to you all soon.

Hey I’m in, but only if we can figure out transportation.

I have no wheels other than the ones on my bikes :smiley:

The race is quite cheap especially if you register early, but any clue how much the license would cost?


License costs are usually $5 to $10 if I remember correctly.

I too am limited to the wheels on my bike for transport, I’m thinking of registering for the 30km race anyways and hoping for the best come race weekend.

Update: the cost for the 30km race right now is $20 + a $3 processing fee. I’ll only save $2 over the cost of registering for $25 on race day, I’m going to wait until then.

Ok, I really want to go to this… Hopefully we can work something out even if it’s last minute.

Fingers crossed…

Just an FYI: I did a race this past weekend in St. Raymond and the one-time event license is $20, so I expect it will be the same for this race.

Wow, that much? The last time I raced without a license, it was $10 for a one-day pass.

Lately, I’ve been paying $80/year for my UCI race license.

…sounds like a good race, but just a note-- this would be a 6h45min drive…hmmmm…

Icky… I just popped it into google maps to see. ~6h drive!
