    Check out Tucson

    I would take a look at Arizona first and combine some road racing with mountain bike racing. They havent posted their race series yet, but it starts in late January or early Feb and runs through April or May. Tucson would be an ideal area for training. You could come in Mid January and pick up a race. In February you could do the 24 Hour in the Old Pueblo race. On Saturday mornings you would take your roadbike out and to the Tucson Shootout which is Cat 1 and 2 dropping everyone on a 65 mile "ride". Heres three links that covers a little of why Tucson should probably be your first, second, and third choices for winter training.
