I figured I would post this instead of emailing Casey, since everyone I talk to seems to have different answers.
Looking at the EB race flier implies that you can only get upgrade points on Feb 1 and after. The race flier says you can get one point for attending the clinics after each race.
1. Can you earn upgrade points racing the early bird races (crits and road) in January?
2. Do you have to race AND show up to the clinic to get the one upgrade point?
