Just got an email from UNR (University of Nevada, Reno) regarding their Collegiate events the weekend of April 14th and 15th. They are adding a USA Cycling sanctioned race for those not racing collegiality. This race is not listed on the NCNCA calendar, so make sure to pass the news along for a bigger turn-out.
Races will be held at the University of Nevada Campus, Reno. USAC Racing starts at 8:00am, registration opens at 7:00am. The Crit Course runs around the medical center on the UNR campus. The route begins in the parking lot between 17th St and Enterprise Rd adjacent to the medical sciences buildings on the UNR Campus. Cyclists will head north on the route before making a right hand turn onto Enterprise, after which the race moves to the east before entering the parking lot of the Center for Molecular Medicine (right turn). It will proceed through this parking lot and then along the short drive south of the Pennington Center for Medical Education. Cyclists will turn right again at East Stadium Way to complete the circuit. The course is .7 miles in length. There is a little bit of climbing and some very fast sections. Most of the pavement is fairly new, so it should be pretty fast and fun. Please pick up all of your trash, a trash receptacle is located at the registration area.
