There is no day-of-event registration for the time trial.
- Saturday Afternoon: May 14: The fourth annual Ashland Criterium, Ashland, Nebraska. Located between Omaha and Lincoln, Ashland will again be hosting a race through city streets near the swimming pool. (but it won't be open yet). The course provides a good mix of fast corners, rolling hills, and an uphill finish.
