This rounds out the USA Cycling 2011 Pro schedule (and the Northstar event is back !):
In its third year, the Pro GRT boasts five races and will continue to provide a consistent stage of international-caliber events for the nation’s elite gravity racers.
The downhill-only series will visit five states between April and June. For the third year in a row, the series will open with the Cup in Port Angeles, Wash., April 9-10.

In June, the Pro GRT will make its penultimate stop in California for the Northstar-at-Tahoe event in Truckee, June 18-19.
