    You need a annual cat 1 license cause it's USAC event. Day of's are good for cat 2/3/fat bike only.

    From registration page

    USA Cycling licenses are required for this race. One-Day licenses are available for $10 at registration. One-Day licenses are only available for cat 3 and cat 2 racers. Cat 1 racers may purchase a one day license for $25, but this can only be done once a year. See USA Cycling website to understand how the catagories work and how to upgrade. The catagories are: Cat 3(begginer) Cat 2(Sport-Intermediate) Cat 1(Expert) and Pro.

    I don't think he'd want another promoter owning it just like I would not want another promoter owning any of our races. If SSaP were to live on it would either be George changing his mind or going in tandem with another club to provide manpower only. I could see that as a possible recourse but in terms of running the race logistics, I wouldn't want to take that race on. He's done a great job with it and I wouldn't want to inherit it and destroy the great reputation he built.

    For USAC races he would need to request an upgrade. So while there is a cat 1 day-of option, he would need to get his cat 1 upgrade before the race. This sounds like a lot of effort to hang out with @Mitch.

    Oooh good question. Didn't even think about that....
    @Norm
    Is it even possible to register for Cat 2 in a USAC race if it's your first USAC race?

    Yeah, mountain biking is a lot more loose with the rules. They pretty much auto-upgrade to cat 2.

    Hopefully the start doesn't leave everyone in a single file like last year after the first climb.

    I got two laps in today. It's a great classic course. Who paved the start? If it's dry it's going to be crazy fast. If it's wet there's gonna be bodies in the trees :)

    That section after the new bridge was all filled in before the NICA race. Not sure if it was done for that reason, or just cause it w a giant washed out rut.

    It was a giant washed out rut but at least it gave LM some personality.
