I would love to do a couple or at least one this season. do I need a road license or is it no USAC sanctioned. Also can I race on my MTB or can I borrow a bike for the Tour of Hapacon and one of these races if I cant get a press demo in time.

Hey John, you definitely want a road bike for the NYC races and they also require a USAC road racing license. The Tour de Lake Hopatcong does not require a USAC Road license, I believe, and you could do the shorter loop on a mountain bike, but again a road bike would be much better. Unfortunately I don't believe we have any team road loaner-bikes.
