Open your wallets! Kidding 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 ).

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!
