The registration for the 2008 Hillsboro Roubaix has now closed for the cat 4/5 and 5 races. The races were capped at 75 and 50 riders respectively and closed within 5 hours of the registration opening. Thanks to Luke at Chicagobikeracing.com for posting the link to register. More importantly a big thank you to Rich Pierce for all the hard work that has gone into organizing this great race again. If the sell out status is any indication of how well this race is organized, other promoters should take note. To those who waited too long, I guess there is always next year!
The registration for the 2008 edition of the Hillsboro Roubaix has finally opened, and by the looks of it if you wait till tomorrow you may be locked out. They are capping the fields again this year and as of an hour ago the 4/5 race was 1/3rd full and the 5 race was already 50% full. Yikes!
Our roster for Hillsboro will be:
This should put us at a distinct advantage since we will comprising over one-tenth of the field. Since the race is only 46 days away, we need to really commit to a cohesive training schedule that will bring the team together as often as possible. The more we can ride and train together, the better we will know how each of us will react in certain situations. Once this weather finally breaks, we will be hitting the road as often as possible to begin to start working on tactis and such. Until then keep up the base work on the trainers or rollers.
