Today I registered with USA Cycling so that I can begin competing in events. I can honestly say that I primarily signed up in order to compete in one event. The 2009 Mellow Johnny's Classic @ Juan Pelota's Ranch benefitting the Lance Armstrong Foundation. It's taking place on November 21st in Austin TX. Registration for the race itself is on Monday October 5th at 12:01am. I really hope I can work out the logistics of getting down to that race. It's clear that I'm going to completely outclassed, but I think it's going to be a great experience if I can do it.
