I haven't really mentioned it much but I have been interning/volunteering with marketing for the Nature Valley Grand Prix since January.
I've been focusing on interactive content (both researching options as well as helping to get some new content off the ground) and updating the website (you can blame me when the results aren't up soon enough). It's been pretty fun to see behind the curtain for an event like this.
Even though the race is more than 2 months away, there are a couple of pretty exciting things coming up.
The men's field of the NVGP is an invitational this year, but there are going to be a couple of ways for Cat 1s to get in on the action.
Locally there is gonna be a little competition to fill some of them. Called the info on the NVGP Qualification Race Series the info looks like it went out to the world this week via Bikethrow and MN Bike Results and hopefully it will some additional excitement the local races and TT involved.
The other exciting news has been confirmed but not announced so I won't go into it too much here, but there will be a way for other Cat 1s to get on an amateur squad at the race in a similar way to the locals.
More to come.
