Floyd Landis and Rahsaan Bahati will contest the Dana Point Grand Prix, a USAC National Racing Calendar round, on April 26. Landis will join his Ouch-Maxxis teammates, including defending NRC champion Rory Sutherland, at the race where he guest commentated last year.

"I had a great time last year channeling Bruce Springsteen and Johnny Cash, but I got a feeling the crowd would rather watch me race my bicycle," said Landis. "I'm an endurance racer and prefer mountains to the mean streets, but I can give one heckuva lead out to my teammates.

Criterium specialist Bahati will join his Rock Racing teammates at the event. Bahati will be joined by defending Dana Point GP champion Sterling Magnell in his squad.

"We'll be positioned to give our best at the finish line and certainly look forward to defending last years Dana Point Rock Racing victory," he said.

The Dana Point GP, held on a 800 metre, six courner course, boasts a prize list of over $30,000 USD.
