I'm trying to decide what race to do this season. The choice is either goto Interbike and do Cross Vegas, or go up to Madison, WI and do the USGP Planet Bike Cup. I wish I could do both but I can't afford to.
Cross Vegas will more or less be a novelty race and a race to not get lapped. For those asking, I've been to Interbike several times so its not a big deal if I don't go.
I've never gone to USGP in Wisconsin. Two days of racing and most likely many of those doing Cross Vegas are going to be there anyway so its not like the competition is going to be much different. The race is driveable but may opt to fly instead (8hr drive).
I would be doing UCI elite in either Cross Vegas or USGP
Cost wise, its probably going to be about the same, with USGP probably being slightly cheaper (especially if I don't go splurge on all things Vegas since its pretty easy to go over the top there)
Your thoughts ideas?
