    Final details will be announced very soon. The event is open to anyone that qualifies for a U.S. Open media credential. (ie, must have professional affiliation with a magazine, company or verifiable freelance)

    I feel I am not being updated on the open to much via email. Is that it with the emails and such? Do we just show up at this point? I am just wondering if there is anything else we need to know before the race.

    You should be able to get all the info you need on the website. Just show up and go to registration to get your number and lift tickets, and ride when you are allowed on the track. thats it.
