The Breck Epic, a new stage race in Colorado set for July 5-10, 2009, announced its categories for the inaugural event. Racers will be able to compete solo in men's, women's or singlespeed categories or as members of two-person men's, women's, mixed, masters (80+) and singlespeed teams.
Due to the level of difficulty expected for the race, promoters are inviting solo entrants who are licensed at the expert or pro level. "If you don't hold a USAC license that proves that you're an expert or above, then you'll need to justify your inclusion in the solo category should you wish to participate," said promoter Michael McCormack.
Prices for the event have not yet been finalized.
