If you're racing, PRE REGISTER!
On-line registration closes on Wednesday, November 10th at 11pm eastern. Elite Riders must Pre-Register (No Day Of Reg. for Elite UCI Categories). Save yourself some money with online pre-registration - there's no online processing fee the USGP pays that for you - but there IS a $10 day-of late registration fee.
Friday, November 12th: Clif Bar Kids Clinic. 4pm-5pm
Join Clif Bar's stellar crew of young pros at the Race Venue - registration is free and limited to the first 30 kids ages 10-14 on http://www.bikereg.com/events/regist...?EventID=11412

Join Meredith Miller of the California Giant Berries / Specialized Team on Friday, November 12th at 4:00pm for a very special debut ride of the new USGP course in her hometown of Fort Collins, CO!
Meredith was instrumental in brining the USGP back to Colorado and in this clinic you'll get her pro insight on how to approach the course and its new features for race day. Even cooler - you can check out Specialized's cross bike line up while doing it. SRAM equipped and ready to demo!

Group Rides to the Races:
Ride to the Races! Meet at New Belgium, Lees Cycles, or Matter bookstore at 9:00AM both Saturday and Sunday to take off in masses to the USGP race venue. I am not sure on this, but there is a rumor going around that meeting at one of these locations might entitle you to extra free beer tokens....
