    I don't think the summer games has a mtn biking event anymore - horseshoes and shooting is more popular. The only race I'm aware of in Cedar is the Fire Roads race in early July. Since its on fire roads it is not technically demanding, but it is very physically demanding. The 100K race is basically an extremely long uphill, then downhill. The 60K is similar but shorter. I asked them once why they didn't go up on the mountain and do a more rolling course on the fire roads up there, but they want to keep it connected to Cedar. Other than that you have the Frog Hollow 6hr race in October in the Virgin/Hurricane area, which is definitely a general xc race.

    There's plenty of racing in St George but mainly early in the season.

    3/1 - ICUP Desert Rampage
    3/15 - True Grit
    4/5 - ICUP Cactus Hugger
    4/19 - 6 Hours of Frog Hollow

    Whoa, I didn't realize they moved the 6hr. I'm not sure I'm reading the map correctly but it looks like they changed the course a bit (at least from 2 years ago). Seems they avoid the rock garden now.
