The Elite Winter Series will be on again this year. Prizes down to 10th place and awarded at the State Champs race as well (that’s the plan anyway). For last year results, check out the results page – remember their were only 4 qualifying females last year!
There will be a price increase to $30 for all AMBC races this year. The committee has made this decision based on a few factors, but primarily due to the club moving towards a streamlined registration style for the registration coordinator. There will be more on this in the near future.
