    Midwest/Central US races

    Does anyone know of or keep a comprehensive list of endurance events in the central & midwest region? I just returned from the Wausau 24, a 6,12, or 24hr race in central Wisconsin....and what a blast!! Im hooked!! I would like to plan out more endurance events for next year, but Im having a hard time finding them. I'd like to know about all the ones within a days drive (~8hrs) of central IL.

    And before anyone suggests it...Im already registered for the BT Epic

    I don't know of a comprehensive list, but the Wisconsin Endurance Mountain Bike Series (Wisconsin Endurance Mountain Bike Series | WEMSeries for short) has 5 races left on the schedule, 6 if you count the single speed championship this weekend. The next race, RASTA Rock'n Root is way up in Rhinelander though... maybe worth a long weekend trip.

    Plus there is this: Dinoseries - 24 Hours of DINO
    Maybe some of these are close enough for you: Fun Promotions LLC, Michigan Endurance Cup Mountain Bike Racing Series

    Not sure if this link will work for you, but I assemble a calendar of races in the Midwest (central to Iowa). XC and Endurance in MN, WI, IL, IA, NE and MO with some of the larger races as well (Dakota 50, BT Epic, Syllamo, etc.)

    I would add burnin' at the bluff in potosi MO as well. It's a 6/12 and a big party for a lot of people finishing off the race season with it. It is on October 12th before BT Epic.

    Iowagriz...I am not able to get your link to open. It wants to use it as an email address.

    email me at my mtbr username @gmail.com and I'll work with you to get it shared. I'm newer to sharing google calendars and must be using the wrong link.

    Stupendous Man and I worked out the link issue. Here is a working link for others. I try to stay on top of date changes, but don't promise anything. I'll update it for next year as well, so the same link will work next year as well.
