We’re a little over 60 days out and the Mellow Classic planning is in full-swing. Registration is the big question on everyone’s mind, so the official dates are April 15, and May 1, 2010. The first date is a new program for those of you that want to support Livestrong. Starting April 15, 2010 we’ll open up 200 spots for people that want this event to be their Livestrong supported event. We’ll have a press release from our friends at Livestrong soon, but participants that select this option will promise to raise a minimum of $250 and will be recognized as a Livestrong supporting participant during the weekend.
On May 1, 2010 our standard registration will open at bikereg.com last year it took about 6 days to fill the event but with a bigger presence and Pro XC Tour status things could move faster. The Next order of business is Pre-rides dates.
We’ll be offering 3 pre-rides dates that are open to racers and anyone else that just wants to come out and ride. These pre-rides MUST be signed up for in advance through Bike Reg links below and please beware that if weather is inclement can be canceled so we don’t destroy the trail before the race. Registration for these pre-rides opens on the Wednesday prior to the weekend day they fall on so we can account for weather more accurately.
Sunday April 18 CANCELLED due to inclement weather
Saturday May 8th, (all mothers ride free!)
Sunday May 23rd
Since the race is Saturday and Sunday event this year we have also chosen to have a pre-ride day on Friday May 28, 2010. We’ll also be hosting a special event for the junior riders of Texas. On Friday morning May 28, we’ll have a special meet-n-greet with pro men and women racers in-town for the event. We feel this is a great chance for our future stars to get a chance to meet our current crop of pro racers. More details, and info on registering for this event in the weeks to come.
