    Question on the Mountain States Cup Series

    What days are the events held on, I know the dates but the actual event days are unclear? Is XC on Saturday and DH, MX and Super D on Sunday or vice versa?

    Follow the links...

    ...to the individual sites.

    I think most of the races have XC on Sat, except the XCST venues (Chalk Creek and Eldora) which are having ST on Sat and XC on Sunday, and the Keystone Climax which has XC on Sunday.

    Also, if you want a little "tune-up" racing action before the MSC gets underway, head down to Nathrop May13-14 for the last of the Yeti Spring Series...

    See ya at the races!
    The older I get, the faster I was.

    I had no intention of racing MTX at all this year, but got talked into doing the last Nathrop race 2 days beforehand, with zero hours of MTX practice. I'm glad I raced it, even though I got my @ss handed to me. I figure I'll try to get at least a couple more in during the course of the season, just to stay rounded (it doesn't hurt matters that I had quite a bit of fun, in spite of my lame results).

    Give it a shot sometime, you may enjoy it after the initial "what the f*** have I gotten myself into?" has passed.
    Now with more vitriol!

    Yeah, but think how much fun it would be to cross the finish line before those two. Hell, if I can get out there, as the oldest, heaviest, and least skilled, everybody should give it a try. Plus, whether it's kayaks, skiing, or bicycles, there's no faster way to get better than to run gates. Although a steady diet of the downhill course at Keystone is a pretty damn good alternative.

    Thanks, I've had great fun. I get to see my boys ride, I get to hang out with cool people, I get to go to some pretty places. It makes my ongoing battle with the forces of gravity almost worth it. scott
