    MES will have four races in 2021. Dates are confirmed for three. Just waiting on the last venue to confirm.

    Waiting to see what the NW Cup looks like for ‘21 and what USAC decides to do about the national series. I won’t be racing until the end of July/ August, due to work... That is if anything happens racing wise.

    April: Possibly the Prescott Whiskey Off-Road 30 miler
    August: Pierre's Hole 100k
    September: Dakota Five-0 50-miler
    Depending on training, might try to throw a 100-miler in there somewhere.

    Not trying to win anything

    I'm putting together a couple of underground off road races.

    It's going to be a really hard year for any event to plan with the uncertainty of vacs etc.
    ride bikes, climb, ski, travel, cook, work to fund former, repeat.

    Labor Day for one you won’t want to miss. Season finale on September 18th. All I can say at this point.

    Yes, hopefully an announcement in the next few weeks.

    Nice, we've got a couple of those races in Socal. I've got a bunch of routes in my head that would make for good races as well. Always thought it would be cool to have a series here like the Arizona endurance series. Maybe we could have a Norcal and Socal series! Let me know when these go down, if I can make it up your way I'd join up.


    Not that I'm competitive but those are the sort of races I like to do. I'll try to make it to Sedona and Prescott for their AES races this year. If it goes ahead in 2021 there is one on the Navajo Nation (with permission) that would be cool to check out.

    Aside from that I'd like to do the Colorado Trail Race this year. Maybe a couple others like Stagecoach 400, Bighorn Trail Race, Olympic 420 or Kenai 250. Bikepacking races are very addictive!

    They must have had some issues with the reg site early this AM.

    Now I am in for Ironton, Santa Fe, and Big Sky in Expert Class.

    Never raced before, but I'm thinking of dipping my toe in the enduro scene this spring and heading to Big Cedar, OK for the last race on the Southern Enduro Tour (the O'Rock Enduro). Looks like a super cool scene, rowdy trails, and I like the idea of big days of racing pretty early-on.

    Anyone ever raced there?

    I'm signed up for the Highland Trail 550 and the Atlas Mountain Race, fingers crossed they both run this year. I may try to do a couple of shorter bikepacking races too.

    I probably should be doing long races. My VO2 max and lactate threshold testing last week pointed to endurance. I probably really shouldn't be an enduro racer. But it's too fun. Someday I want to do some long races though.

    Hoping to do some Cal Enduro Series events and other stuff here and nearby, most likely:

    China Peak
    Ashland
    Shasta (?) doubtful.

    Maybe others if they get scheduled.

    Hopefully Fears, Tears, and Beers in Ely, NV too. http://elynevada.net/fears-tears-and-beers/

    I'm slow as hell, but races are super fun, and a great way to focus improvement too. I don't "train," but it encourages me to ride more!
    sproing!

    FS: Scarpa Maestrale RS 2, size 29. Cheep! https://www.tetongravity.com/forums/...RS-2-0-size-29
