Here are the results from Saturday Seeding and what to expect today.
We will have plenty of copies for you at the event but if you really like to use your own toner, print the appropriate stuff and bring it with.’
Also useful for minors traveling without their guardians.
See the following document for everything you need to know about the upcoming NW Cup/Pro GRT. The schedule MIGHT have some small tweaks, but this is the current prediction.
Dry Hill has never been into better shape going into a race season, ironically, thanks to the heavy snowpack we received. Let’s get this party started!
As most of you know, both of the Pro GRT’s hosted by NW Cup are UCI sanctioned events. So what does that mean?
The main difference between these and standard NW Cups is that anyone racing the Elite (Pro) category, must have an International license. This can be issued by the UCI or USA Cycling but it must be an International license. I said that twice, because it’s important. For those of you who have raced the Pro GRTs over the past few years, you know what I’m talking about.
This is an especially significant opportunity this year as there are two ginormous UCI races happening on North American soil this year; the World Championships in Mt. Sainte Anne, and a World Cup at Snowshoe, WV. The Pro GRT being a UCI event gives you the opportunity to earn points toward qualifying for these events.
If you already have an Int’l license, keep cleaning your bike. If you don’t, your best bet would be to contact USA Cycling and upgrade your license with them. If you don’t get to it, it “should” be possible at the event.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation and we’re looking forward to kicking off the 2019 NW Cup.
Remember last February when we had that amazing pre-season shuttle weekend at Dry Hill? That was cool….
It is not for lack of planning that we didn’t pull one off this year so far as all you PNW’ers know. We have yet to be able to make it up to the podium with this massive winter dump. The start ramp area gathered nearly 5ft of snow. A local broke all his Strava times…on his skis.
That said, it’s melting quick-ish. If possible, we will still try to have a Spring Shuttler, but there isn’t anything currently in the forecast. One thing we can guarantee is the opportunity for some dig days as we get closer to the opening round of the 2019 season.
The good news is that we have been fending off the cabin fever by doing all the behind the scenes stuff that will make the 2019 season the best one yet!
It’s official, pre-registration for the 2019 NW Cup is live. Looking forward to a few NW Cup Family Reunions this year.
