 *New this year to the series, the Cycle Youth team will be sponsoring a new Junior X class (11-18 experts), the distance will be targeted to the 1 & 1/2 hour range and will start with the Pro men. 

The purpose for the new
class and the shorter distance is to prepare our top junior athletes to compete
at a National and international level where they will be racing with riders as
fast as some of our pros.  The average World Cup-level Junior Expert race
is only 60-80 minutes long, and therefore is the target goal of SERC and GSC
events
