This year the nations couriers head down south to Texas for the North American Cycle Courier Championships. naccc2011austin.wordpress.com.
Here is a blurb from their site:
The 2011 North American Cycle Courier Championships, presented by Chrome, are going down October 7th-9th in Austin, Texas. The crew invite the messengers of the world to their town on the Colorado River for a weekend of slowly smoked, highly carbonated bicycle racing action. Expect a main race, side events, alleycat, and three nights of parties in the warm hills of central Texas.
NACCC participants have the option of shipping their bikes to sponsor Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop in downtown Austin. Adding NACCC to the address label and notifying the organziers via email@example.com will help us keep track of your bike. Help us help Mellow Johnny’s help you fight airline luggage fee price gouging!
