MTB Race Calendar

Try opening the Calendar in Internet Explorer.
I normally use Firefox and I've had several reports in the past week that some people can't open the C.O.N.I. Manual on the site but when I tell them to open it in IE it seems to work.
Not being an IT person, I have no idea of why this happens.
Also, I update that Calendar about three times a week so I recommend linking to it and "refreshing" often. Several race organizers are now waiting for date confirmation from their communities before giving me their final date.
KMC Chains is the Calendar sponsor and I jhave a few new and unused 9 and 10 speed XL chains. Contact me with Calendar or if you are interested in a chain at firstname.lastname@example.org
Is Snowmass going hold that race on their own?
August 2-4 Blast The Mass Snowmass, CO
They asked to be put on the calendar but no more info at this time
The Calendar is now in a PDF format so it should open for everyone.
Thanks to Tom from Salida and my son for helping with this.
I'm 50 and just getting back into riding shape last year. Mainly ride Green Mtn and Bear Creek Lake Park since they are near my house. Rode Mt Falcon once last year and remembered why I hated it in college - nothing but a 3.5 mile climb followed by a long descent. I tend to like rides where I can constantly mix up climbing, descending and XC trail riding like the two above and Buffalo Creek.
I've never raced before so I'm looking for an easier Team race as a started. The 12 hours of Mesa Verde looks interesting. Looks like mostly single track with some hills but no major league, long climbs.
The 18 hours of Fruita also looks interesting. Anyone raced in either one of these with advice?

Boo hoo, no Voodoo from RME this year, I rode it last year, it was my first MTB race. I really enjoyed the course and was looking forward to seeing YOY improvement. I guess Bear Creek will be the gauge now.
Bob, Strava doesn't lie. Lets go down there and run the course a few times this year!

thanks for sharing. Now that the MSC us no longer, I can only assume CB will have some sort of XC/DH race event over our fat tire bike week which is usually at the end of June.
Just registered a 4 person co-ed team for the 18 hrs of Fruita!
Quite likely that the RIVERSIDE RAMPAGE in Salida, formerly an MSC event (race #1 last year), will be happening this spring. Don't know if it will be an Omnium again or just a 1-day XC race.
