After capping out registration in 2008, the Nature Valley Grand Prix women's race will be invitation only for 2009, organisers announced this week.
"The popularity of our women's race has grown steadily", said Nature Valley Grand Prix promoter David LaPorte. "We're the third of four stops on the Women's Prestige Cycling Series, a program that we coordinate. We're also the destination event for two national women's programs. The Women's Collegiate All Stars will be selected at the USA Cycling Collegiate National Championships, held May 8 – 10 in Fort Collins, CO. And the Nature Valley Pro Ride is selecting the men's and women's Nature Valley Cycling Teams at regional events around the county."
Applications are now open and can be found on the event web site under NVGP > Racer Technical Info. The application deadline is May 1 and invitations will be issued by May 8. The Nature Valley Grand Prix will be held June 10 – 14.
