Hot off the presses at www.cyclingnews.com:

"Inaugural Collegiate Cycling World Grand Prix
Quantum Sports & Entertainment LLC and the City of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, have announced the first annual Collegiate Cycling World Grand Prix. The event, to be held May 30-June 1, 2003 in historic Bethlehem, will have a minimum prize list of $35,000 and is expected to draw more than 500 competitors from up to 200 American and international schools.

The Collegiate Cycling World Grand Prix will kick off Friday night with street sprints in the South Side business district of Bethlehem. Road race heats will take place on Saturday, with the finals for men and women on Sunday. The road race will consist of a 6-mile loop that starts and finishes in historic downtown Bethlehem. The course includes the South Side business district, a one-mile climb through Fraternity Row in Lehigh University, and a turn around loop through the campus of Moravian College.

For more information on the 2003 Collegiate Cycling World Grand Prix, please contact Quantum Sports and Entertainment CEO, Jack Simes at 610-298-3255 or Quantum@betcycling.com. "

I'll be there representing Lehigh! Check out the course map from the local newspaper. The portion winding up through Lehigh's campus is a great climb, the top being VERY steep. From what I heard originally the feature event will be 10-12 laps.
