    WA Racing Series?

    I'm moving to Redmond from Orlando, FL. We had a great series, the Florida State Championship series. I really enjoyed it. It was an XC series.

    I haven't been able to find much in this area on the Internet. Does anyone know of good racing up here?

    I'll probably have to adopt to a new style of riding, Super-D or downhill, but my bike (Specialized Enduro SL) can handle it fine so that's no problem.

    And the budu series, and quite a bit of other XC if you're willing to drive to Oregon and BC. Also a few Super-D's around, and I'm sure more downhill then FL.

    Not that much in the way of Super D or Downhill in Washington although there are 2-3 races in Port Angeles and Spokane. If you decide to race XC there is a lot of hill climbing so a lighter bike would actually be better. The next race in Leavenworth has 4,950 feet of climb over 25.8 miles for experts. Sport only has 17.2 miles and 3300 feet
