ECCC Winter Planning Meeting 2009

The inaugural ECCC Winter Planning Meeting was held at Yale University in February, 2009. Major themes for the day were checking in on road promoters, some road issues such as refining aero gear restrictions, and a healthy dose of MTB, CX, and Track season discussion.
