Quiet here, but a lot is happening!

I'm sorry this page has been fairly quiet over the past month or so, but I can assure you that LOTS has been happening! First, Dr. Whitmore and I spent a while over at the 'cx venue doing our best to flatten the track for this year's event. Late last fall we expanded a few sections of the course to help increase the course length but also speed up a few areas. Those sections are now in great shape, and we'll get out there in the next few weeks with the screen to help drag in all of the chopped dirt.
Second, sponsorships are beginning to finalize, and the process to design winner's jerseys through Verge Sport has begun! Those will also be available for pre-sale (only) as soon as the race registration page opens (which *should* be in May).

As always, I ask that you continually help to support the sponsors that support the Alma Grand Prix of Cyclocross (presented by Velocity USA)! Your voice and "thanks" to our sponsors helps expand both the footprint of this race as well as makes the sponsors aware that YOU are aware of their support! Get on their Facebook pages, Twitter accounts, or websites and let them know how much you appreciate their support!

Updates are fairly frequent on the race Facebook and Twitter pages! Registration through USA Cycling will be opening soon...

I'll see you on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 12! (Unless, of course, I see you on Friday, September 11, camping at the venue and picking up your bib number at the Alma Brewing Company!)
