Thanks for creating this thread and throwing all those links in the first post, makes things easier for a newb-to-the-area.
There is a 2-day Trials class at TTC immediately after the Wagner Cup, too. $300 for the two days of training alone, $500 for two days with bike rental. I'm going as a b-day prezzie to myself.
Tellico Plains seemed fairly busy yesterday, I stopped in to check out Minimike's store and to log some miles to get my new bike past the first maintenance checkpoint.
