MABRA - Capital Cross Classic

Just wondering if anybody knows when registration will open for the MABRA Capital Cross Classic. It's in Reston VA only about 4 miles from my house so I want to be sure to get signed up for at least one and maybe two races (being old, slow and a rookie lets me race in Cat4 and 45+).

You headed out to my neck of the woods on the 19th for the Vint Hill race?

I used to always hit that race. IT's a good one, very competitive.

cxhairs has a ride-thru video up. Looks like a fun, more wide open course.

I don't like the constant 180deg turns. Give me some open, flowy stuff and I'm happy. Let the racer's fitness decide the outcome, not who can get past the bottlenecks in the turns best.

Missed the race. My empty wallet meant I helped a buddy out instead.

That problem fixed itself temporarily, so I'm hoping to hit a few of the late season races.

I found a park local to me that'd be a decent place for a cross race. Only problem being its kinda flat. Not pancake flat, but not hilly either
