2012 US Cup East / South Eastern Regional Championship series (SERC) / AMBC #6 / Georgia State Championship series #3
Date: May 27, 2012
Dauset Trails - Jackson, GA 
Round Sponsor:  
 *Note: wave order for all SERC / US Cup East events in 2012 will be Yellow @ 9:30am and White @ 11:30am.
*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
This annual event is held at one of the most fun and flowing courses in Georiga, miles of singletrack wind up and down the varied terrain that make up this nature preserve.  Most technical trail is called "Huff & Puff" for good reason.  Course distance is 10 miles per lap
