I recently got the following email…
Congratulations! You have qualified for the 2009 USA Cycling Mountain Bike National Championships scheduled for July 16-19, 2009 at Sol Vista Basin in Granby, CO
Online race registration will open April 1, 2009 through www.sportsbaseonline.com
If you haven’t already renewed your 2009 USAC-MTB license, now is the time to do it! Licenses purchased now are good through December 31, 2009. All riders must have an annual USAC-MTB license in order to compete at the 2009 USA Cycling Mountain Bike National Championships.
Hope to see you there! Good luck with your season.

AWESOME, I DID IT!!! I QUALIFIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wait… if memory serves me correctly… the last NORBA sanctioned race I competed in was in June 2008! So what have I done to qualify for the US Nationals? I mean this email was very personal “Dear Racer” and was sent specifically to me, right?!
Oh, I figured it out…
