Here is a final draft of my 2011 race calendar. It always stays in draft form because it tends to change frequently, but this one will keep me real busy and hopefully help me pull off some good finishes this year. I'm hoping to make it a great season at the tender age of 50! Ha! So, the big plan is to compete in as many of the Kenda Cup series XC races as I can, which will get me ready for the 2011 Master World Championship race in Brazil in July. There are a few 100 mile and 12 and 24 hour races in there to get me ready for the National Marathon Championship race in September in Oregon and the National 24 Hour Championship in October in Colorado Springs. I also plan to compete in as many of the Tuesday night Over the Hump XC training races at Irvine Lake in Orange County. I will be out there with the Cannondale crew to support their local shops and help them demo the bikes they will have available.
See you on the trails!
