In October, I sent a note to USA Cycling's event coordinator regarding team parking at Cross Nationals in Bend. I didn't hear anything until I received this Friday:

USA Cycling will be closed on Monday 18 Jan in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr Day. Will be back in the office on Tuesday. Will be checking email thru the weekend.
Have a great weekend!

I can’t seem to find any information on reserving a team parking spot for cross nationals in Bend. I’ve looked through the websites and Sportsbase on line and don’t see anything. Can you point me in the right direction?

Glad see my e-mail is still in the hopper and that Tom will be checking e-mail though the weekend. Maybe I'll get a reply by 2010 Nationals.
The sad part is I've never been a USA Cycling basher. However, it the last week they've become an easy target. Is improvement coming anytime soon? I hope so but think not.
