MTB event calendars

Filed under: Riding and racing — mtbguru @ 10:04 pm

We’re already a month underway and I still need to figure out which races I want to do in 2010 – not that I really need to do any, but they’re sometimes too much fun to pass on. Alas, there is so much out there, and so little time – which I guess is a good thing. As I tend to forget the various calendar url’s and sites, below is a list of links, mostly for my own reference (hence a bit of a Norcal bias) – but they could be of general usefulness…

mtbcalendar.com
Very nice (Rails-based) community-based calendar site, covering a huge amount of events, pretty much everywhere.

norcalmtnbikeracing.blogspot.com
Excellent site focusing on Northern California events

www.prerace.com
Very useful US based race calendar site – nice thing is it also contains road races and e.g. xc ski events.

Another good one…

www.usmtb100.com
The National Ultra Endurance (NUE) series of 100 milers.

www.usacycling.org/mbnc
USA Cycling calendar

Also, the ultra racing forum on bikepacking.net is something to keep an eye on, there are some amazing rides being staged – the new, awesome and particulary grueling looking Arizona Trail race comes to mind!

My plan? To do a bunch of local events (e.g. Sea Otter, CCCX, Coe), a still-to-be-decided 100 miler, throw in some tri, xterra or road events for good measure and I’d love to do a bikepacking event as well, but we’ll see how far I get – so much to do, so little time…
