Yes, you need a license. In this particular race (and most), it would be from USA Cycling
). I detailed the process also on my blog
awhile back, but the end result is pretty simple.
Yea, they really changed it. I was kinda hoping to do the traditional route, but they were looking to make it safer for everyone. (Early HHH starters positioned down the road from the start line would see the racers start, think it was time to go, then start themselves, getting in the way of some fast-moving packs, or worse, try to jump into a pack with little-to-no experience racing. Disaster waiting to happen.)
