Just a note about the costs. A symposium of this magnitude should cost a lot more. The cost alone of the National speakers presenting would cost more than what the entire event has ended up costing. It is only because of funding from Trek, SRAM, and Bikes Belong that the speakers costs are covered. Please thank these groups for helping!
