May 25 Update

Mark Thomas has offered a few reminders to PBP aspirants concerning upcoming registration deadlines:

May 29 - Preregistration for riders who rode a 200km ACP brevet (or longer) in 2010
- Starts midnight Paris time (6pm on 5/28 here on the east coast)

June 11 - Registration begins (presumably midnight Paris time, so evening of 6/10 here)
- Preregistered riders start final registration
- Non-preregistered riders may also register if there are quota spaces available (likely)

June 19 - Pre-registered riders lose their priority space if not yet registered
- This may free up national quota to allow more non-preregistered riders to register on June 20

July 17 - Registration deadline
- Riders who registered without all of their 2011 brevet homologation numbers must provide them by July 17

As of May 24, 442 US riders had completed their registerations. Due to the projected US totals, RUSA returned 50 pre-registration spaces to the ACP for use by other countries. The total US allocation is now 669. There are still plenty of spaces available for those wanting to ride PBP.
