Why not!  lets put it in my plan.    I should check if my late race last year already has me qualified.  I probably need to get an Oly into my training for HIM anyhow.  You should get some tri suits made up us!!

I think if your race was after in July or after then it was a qualifier for next year. 

I think I am getting some tri-suits made up for next year, in the design phase now.  I'll let you know before I order!

My race was in August.  I can't find the email I got about qualifying anymore and can't find anything under my profile on the USAT site.  I qualified for something, not sure what it was though!  LOL

A thread started on the main page about this as well. Should be some helpful info in there too.

July 18th 2012 was the cutoff for the start of the 2013 event. So definitely figure out what happened at your August race if you're interested.

I'm debating on this one. I want to, but it will put in a longer string of races than I'd like if I do it. Not sure I'm someone who should have a high race frequency to do well.

Guess it depends on how frequent the races are (every week, month?) and what the duration of the race is.  If you have a string of earlier races that might actually help for Nationals.

It would actually tie together mid-season and late season races, so over a period of at least a couple months I'd be racing about every other week. Race lengths would start short, and build throughout. So it could work well for someone if more race frequency is good for them. Not sure if that's me yet. Could be just learning how to work the race recovery for maximum advantage.

Getting in shouldn't be an issue, it's more if I want that kind of schedule. And that I have a USAT certified race before selling out as I tend to just go with what looks fun.
