So i'm giving a presentation out at the MTB Summit in about 10 days giving a rundown on the Pro GRT.. i've got a great layout for the Pro GRT for 2010, but want to make things bigger & better!

Shoot me some ideas of what you'd like the "national series" to be, to have, to offer you! This is for both Amateur/Pro racers, spectators, & industry alike! Although i can't promise everything, i'm sending all the valid information direct to USA Cycling, the various promoters & industry. This is "OUR" series! We should all have a say in it!

I wish i could share the schedule, locations, etc... but you'll have to wait for just a bit longer. I'm trying to finalize a couple of final resorts which should hopefully be sorted by the MTB Summit meeting on Nov 13-15. Trust me, you'll be pumped on it! No major conflicting schedules, a relatively easy travel plan & a ton of great locations!

However, if you are a pro, industry, media & need to know the tentative schedule due to budget concerns, you can hit me up directly at

i'm building a temporary Pro GRT website as well, so you can stay posted there for all your info.

What if you did downhill runs in a jam format? Something like have enough time for each person that qualified for the final to have a few runs and let the competitors jam it out. If someone gets knocked off the top spot then they might be able to cut to the front of the line(in case it was right at the end of the time period).

Maybe get coaches to come out so the juniors or beginners can get some coaching after they're done with their racing(on one of the mountains different runs or something). Maybe do a little career fair/sponsorship fair thing on the side, people could bring their work or riding resumes and network with the industry types.

Speed dating?

I'm just throwing out ideas.
