Masters Nats in Louisville, who's going?

I signed up for the 40-44 RR. Will probably do the TT too, but not sure about staying 3 extra days for the crit. Anyone else here planning on going?

Hey, I might race against pizza man. Not sure if I'm going though. It's a long way to go and the two races are too spread out.

This would be a good place for a lot of us to meet, race (get our arses kicked by g.) and have a few drinks and laughs. Plus pull out the list of excuses as to why we weren't as good as we should have been.

Last year it was actually over the 4th of July weekend. This year I think it's just before. Biggest problem for me is kid duty.

Yeah, not my first choice of a city to travel to, but that's where the races are.

This will probably be the first race I've ever done where I'm the youngest in the race, 39 and a half with a racing age of 40.

Dear USA Cycling Member,
Now that the 2009 competitive cycling season is in full swing, we know many of you are looking ahead to this year’s USA Cycling Masters Road National Championships. Returning to Louisville, Ky. June 28 - July 4, this year's edition will again provide a competitive racing environment for our Masters athletes and crown national champions in time trial, road race, criterium and tandem events.
With just two months remaining until the event, online registration is set to open at 12:00 a.m. EDT on Friday, May 1. To register, please visit www.sportsbaseonline.com or click on the following link: www.sportsbaseonline.com/events/index.xhtml?categoryId=2820.
Based on previous valuable feedback from our members, USA Cycling will again offer on-site registration and race-day packet pick-up, as well as a refund option in case your plans change. Also, please note that USA Cycling will also implement an escalating registration fee structure, so be sure to register early before the first increase in registration fees occurs on June 7!
Information regarding the event, such as the schedule, rules page, course maps and profiles can be found here: www.usacycling.org/events/2009/mastersroad/

I used to live in Louisville, it's a nice city with a bad problem... it's located in KY.

Injuries have destroyed my season, I am looking forward to cross season already.
