    Mountain states cup

    Does anyone have the schedule for the 2005 Mountain states cup. I'm new to racing, but can't wait to get out there.

    I have looked everywhere and I can't find any dates. Help?

    By the way, any suggestions for first time racers.

    Don't mind snowskilz-he's just bitter he was at work

    It was actually posted on this board a few weeks ago, but I took the Liberty to attach it below. Tips for racing: Train, train, train, and when you have felt that you have trained enough, drink a beer (or train). Focus on any area of riding that you feel most uncomfortable with. However, don't get rusty on your strongest skills. Do a few searches online and i'm sure you can come up with some pretty adequate programs that will make you fast.

    Also, make sure that you get in the competitive mode. Your first race will always be the most stressful. I know my first (XC) was intense. I took off right when the gun fired. Sprinted for about 6 miles and held the lead. Then I pretty much just bonked. If your racing XC, make sure that your consistant throughout the the race and not just using "speed bursts".....or you WILL lose.

    These guys will give you a lot of pointers to help you in your discipline, but also remember...you will be competing against most of them in the MSC (including myself and "Search Boy"). So syke these beeeyotches out, ya heard?

    As promised...

    MSC isn't out yet-but most of their races are in conjunction w/the Cycle Cyndicate guys. There's still Battle at the Bear and I think a couple of others I've been waiting to see the dates on. Also still waiting on Winter Park's schedule.

    Cycle Cyndicate is an organizer for MSC, along with a few others. Although I heard that for 05 cycle cyndicate was pretty much the only one doing it this year.

    msc is too expensive

    i found that paying for a norba membership or one day membership, price of gas to get to races and the 35 bucks they charged for the race fee was just out of my budget.. look at local races..

    $120 for the whole season, but that was a few years ago. Just make sure you don't miss the first race of the season - the hill climb from the base of wp to the top of Maryjane. At least as painful as it sounds, but it did make me feel a little better to hear all the sponsored guys/ girls coughing their lungs out at the top along with me...

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    You guys need to chill out . If you want Norba and MSC racing including DH and Slalom (and pay extra for more events) go here.

    If you want local, good XC racing (cheap) go here

    Yep. If you're into XC, Winter Park races are great. They don't have the new schedule up yet, but typically it doesn't really change that much. Look at the last couple years of race history. Usually, WP has the same races on the same weekends as the prior year if they can. I know that isn't a ton of help but will help you on a vague schedule.
