Starting 2007 racing in North America will be the Southern Nevada Stage Race, January 26 - 28. Formerly know as Nelsons Landing, the race utilizes a new six-mile road race circuit which climbs 775 feet (236m) per lap.
The road race was changed due to the growth of this event and the tight nature of the old course. The parcours is located in the beautiful Anthem, Sun City residential area of Henderson, which is southeast of Las Vegas.
The time trial course was changed back to the 20km Underground course formerly used in Nelsons Landing. This moderately flat course now offers something for everyone and is said to be "ideal for all aero equipment." The criterium course will remain unchanged from 2006. There will be several time bonuses given during the criterium that will keep the overall classification uncertain until very end.
The scoring company has also been changed which will hopefully mean faster publishing time for results. Organisers hope that with these modifications their event will grow into one of the premier regional stage races. For more information see www.southernnevadasr.com
