Registration and USAC UPGRADES!

Don't forget!

With the move to category-based racing from the old classifications of A's, B's, and C's, the races are now limited based on what it says on your USAC license!

Therefore, if you need to upgrade or downgrade to register in your desired race category, GET ON IT SOON!  You can request these category changes through when you sign into your account.

Imagine what you'll be doing exactly one month from now...

It's 10:00 a.m. on 8/7 and in 31 days the Cat 4 men will hear the gun for the FIFTH Ithaca Grand Prix of Cyclocross p/b Zevlin.
Will you be on that start line?  Will you be watching on the sidelines?  Will you still be sipping coffee on your drive up US127 for a later start time?  Or will you be missing the whole thing for one reason or another?

Registration is still live and there are only 22 pre-registration bonus spots remaining (a $15 Mountain Khakis gift card)!  Remember, if you're a Cat 4/5 or Elite women you'll be competing for $50 gift cards to each of the top five finishers anyway - so why not help the cause a bit?

So get your upgrades if necessary, and REGISTER while you still can!  Don't forget to pre-order a pint glass...that option will be removed from the pre-reg page on August 24.

Sponsor swag is arriving DAILY to Ithaca GP headquarters and trust me - you won't want to miss this kick off to 'cross season!
