So, we need to clarify what is going on with registration. We opened registration today for the racers who raced last year, as a thank you for having faith in us during our first year! This has backfired on us a little, as we’ve had a number of people register today that did not race last year. There’s still a lot of spaces left for the event, but as a result of the poaching, we will shut the athlete360 site down at noon tomorrow (Feb. 11th). Registration will re-open at 9:00AM on Monday, February 15th. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the enthusiasm everyone is showing for the event, but we also want to be certain new racers all get the same chance at the spaces available. I shutter to think about creating another LT100 debacle.
Another thought to file away for 2011, and I would love to see some comments here on this – do you think the best way to handle registration is to simply open it up on a given day and let it go first-come-first-served? I personally do not like the lottery system. Thoughts?
Happy Winter Riding.
