 Just to clear things up, from what i have been reading on the website you register for each individual race online and you choose how many practice days you want and that changes the price? Also i have never raced before so can i just register then show up? What are the rules?
  • + 1
 That pre-reg site (cyclecomponentnetwork.com) is just for the April race, and yes you pay per how many days you play. Same as the other three races (including this weekend). And yes you just show up and race. Look at the schedule of events tab on www.nwxup.com and it will tell you when practice is for your given category. For example, Cat 3 and Cat1 practice from 9-1 on Saturday.

 we'll fit ya in...if it rains...and it should, many will leave. wouldn't worry too much dude, but come early friday or sat am if ya can
  • + 1
 There's no cap for this race. If you show up, you will race.

As for rain, we've yet to see a drop since I think last Friday. The best chance for some rain is tonite, but over the weekend we'll see sprinkles at best/worst depending on your perspective.
  • + 1
 but there is still a cap on for round 2, right? good news about the rain, I was just going by the weather channel's website. Should probably check w/ shawn before we head out.

 These were made with a standard GoPro (obviously). We have since received a HD version so the next round of vids should be a little crisper.

 How come when i look at the nwcup.com it says registration online only but here it says you register at the event?
  • + 1
 It is a bit confusing. Here's the deal. The first race is register on-site only, no pre-reg. The second race, (here's the confusing part) is also the first Pro GRT and this does have pre-reg and it will probably fill up given the cap. Hope that clears it up.

 Nevermind...I was looking at an older post.

 these films have all been speeded up!!cool tracks

 Haha a world cup rider on a fairly mellow track will look pretty damn fastlol ....... I don't think Luke's was sped up, at least.
  • + 2
 I feel like an idiot even responding to this, but I promise it's stock footage. At this point I wouldn't even know how to speed it up. If anything I would have slowed it down, because it is a track preview, not a look how fast we can go show.
