Organizers announced that registration is open for the Mountain's Edge Cactus Cup, a three-day stage race in Las Vegas from September 19-21. The race will include a time trial, super D, fat tire crit and cross country race.
Early registration, including reduced fees, runs through August 15. Pros and semi-pros are required to register for the complete race although beginner, sport and expert riders may do individual races or compete in an omnium overall. The race will feature an entry fee payback program through which a percentage of entry fees will be awarded back to registered racers, creating a prize pool so that larger more competitive categories have larger cash purses. Each category has a guaranteed prize list, with a varying percentage of entry fees added to this guarantee.
The race will raise funds for the HERA Women's Cancer Foundation and the Animal Foundation located in Las Vegas. For more information or to register, visit www.cactuscuplasvegas.com.
