    Hook up with the CAMBC guys. They used to be involved in a couple of races a year in Central VA, and even if they aren't anymore, they can likely point you in the right direction.

    Looking at their respective race schedules, I'd say it's the same folks.

    Looks like they do overlap some, confusing. I'm used to moto where each org has their own races. All the mtb series I've seen seem to intermingle.

    Nope, definitely not the same. A new group of race directors are trying put the VORS out of business. Some race promoters are caught in the middle and do not want to choose sides. VORS has been around awhile and are good people, VAMTS I now boycott anything with their name attached to it.

    CAMBC hosts the Chimney Chase at Walnut Creek Park. Think it's in June or July. Also a race is held at O-hill in C'ville. Forget the name, UVA bike club runs it. Both are good spots for riding.

    I think it's silly to boycott any form of mountain bike racing. We should support anything that promotes more racing. No one really pays attention to either series results imho.

    Well that is because you are affiliated with one of the shops that is the promoter. Right?

    The second series was started to hurt the other one, you do not have a problem with that? How does that help? The VORS has a lot more racing then the other, why would you help put them out?
