    I like the idea of possibly having a localized series for those of us just starting out in the sport. If you need help getting the word out let me know if I can help!

    If there was a Clydesdale (over 200 lb) category, I would enter. I have never raced and I have been mountain biking for about 20 years.

    I would be interested in the super D and Enduro since I ride a longer travel all mountain type of bike.

    I'd be interested in XC / marathon stuff.

    Cool website, keep us posted. I like the bike / run event.

    EURO-Enduro style races. Tech trails, lots of flow, not so much climbing(keep that for the transfer stages). No time restrictions on the climbs. Beer and Burritos for the finishers.

    I have been attending all of the Oregon Enduros this year - if you have any questions feel free to contact me.

    Do xc skiers whine about DH skiers earning anything?If you dared to really race DH,you'd realize it's as earned as your climbing.

    I'm a XC guy with a sick attraction to 12- and 24-hour events. I'm slow but imaginative, so while I never really count on winning a race, by the 11th or 23rd hour I just KNOW I am going to be standing somewhere on the podium. As some of you know, I had a truly small hand in some of the GC stuff, and I love the trails that were built (and continue to expand) there. I broke bones for the cause, I love our sport, and I hope that I am lucky enough to leave this world on a bike, although I should be quick to point out that I am in no great hurry to do so. I recently took over and expanded a bike shop in Payson. There is SO MUCH untapped potential up here. A few of our local riders have built an extremely fun, challenging and profane ten or so miles of true single track (profane because...well...you'll delightedly agree) just on the outskirts of Payson; Pine & Strawberry "get" it, as will be reflected in their upcoming Fire on the Rim mountain bike race (if you haven't registered, do so now). If you want to stage something up here, count me in. I will support it in whatever capacity I can.

    Super D and Dh. But a real question is what land can you folks hold events on? Parks land or forest land or both?

    There is a big difference between ripping and skidding.

    How about biathalon? Ride the bike, dismount, shoot at a target, repeat.

    Despite what I said earlier, I would shy away from Payson, you're likely to get very little support, a fair amount of resistance, and no coherent trail system on which to stage a venue.

    Gold Canyon XC and 12- and 24-hour events, use Don's Camp as the venue!!
