If you get in touch with me well before hand, I might be able to find some guest housing. Registration closes 15 mins before each start. Preregistration details will be posted on race website. There will tentatively be a smaller non-USAC and non-NMCX race on Sunday 1/13/19 see website below for info.
We will use Google Forms for registration. It does not cost anything to preregister/ You will need to pay at the race even if you are preregistered, but all your info will already be entered, and we will have some idea of how many riders to expect. You will also save $10. I have a card reader on my phone so you can pay with a card at the race. If you are doing 2 races it will be an extra $5 per race.
Registration links will be here when active.
Course: Course will not conform exactly to modern UCI/USAC standards in that some sections will be narrower than 3 meters. We may also use hurdles in singles or threes instead of pairs and hurdles may be less than 4M apart. 12:30 start will do an abbreviated easier course, which will be suitable for beginners. All others will do a longer course.
Nice course along the ditchroads and service doubletrack in the bosque. One of the most scenic courses we have. Mud is possible. Course maps will be posted here later.
Directions: Tentativley at Valle de Oro NWR south of Albuquerque. Exit I-25 on Rio Bravo and go west about a mile to 2nd. Take 2nd south about 3 miles to to the Valle de Oro Wildlife Preserve. Follow signs to the race.
