Mark your calendars now - the 4th Annual Greenbrier Challenge MTB Race at Maryland's Greenbrier State Park (brought to you be the Potomac Velo Club) has been added to the UCI schedule for 2007. Check www. potomacveloclub.com for upcoming info!
Open your wallets! Kidding :D But international upgrade to your NORBA license will run $90 to do a UCI event.

As I understand it, only the Pro's run the UCI race - the rest of you common folk can use your NORBA license for an AMBC race to qualify for the Nationals in Mt Snow....
Oh, that's right (duhhh!). Only UCI part of it is the Elite (pro) class. I knew that and then forgot (I'm blaming it on age :D).
Having a World Cup there will make for some great spectating and a cool atmosphere.

I missed out on this last year, but certainly planning on it for the upcoming season!

It's a short course - about 4.7 miles - but watch out for the little tree in the middle of the rock-strewn downhill!
