2015 Registration Opening Dates

It's been confirmed to Gran Fondo Guide that registration for the events won't open until 1st March 2015 or thereabouts. However tt's still really good to get details of all the events so everyone can get planning there season. The new events look awesome too! 
There will be six opportunities for riders to complete the series in 2015. But as you can see, it's going to be a "fast and furious" season: 4 events in a mere 6 weeks from June 2015 through July 2015 plus one unsupported event in August and another non-RMCC event in September. 
2015 is a Paris-Brest-Paris (PBP) year. PBP, the world's oldest 1200 km brevet, only takes place every 4 years. In 2015, PBP will take place during the middle of August. They want to make sure that all riders who would like to complete the 2015 Colorado Triple Crown are adequately recovered for PBP.
And what about the Cripple Creek Crippler and Cycle to Saturn Double Century? Don't worry, these events will be back in 2016. They continue to add to their repertoire of events to keep the series "fresh" and challenging for everyone!
