    Out. Registered and everything. Most expensive race around and I forfeit my registration fee... I ROCK!

    I considered it but the price is just a bit above threshold now.

    Can't make the race. Registered in Decembet because the 4s sell out. Deadline for refunds was apparently the 20th of March. No ability to transfer between races.

    Worth noting that refund policies that are anything but generous are also a deterrent to registering early. If I can decide a week out that I'm not racing and all get my money back in more inclined to give the promoter an interest free loan.

    good luck to everyone going. i went 4 years ago and thought it was awesome to race with like 150 cat 2s across all those gravel roads. I unfortunately got dropped (for good) on the last bump of meetinghouse road, but not before i attacked and was off the front at battenkill for about 30 seconds :-). great event.
