Everyday more races are scheduled and more races appear in the BikeReg.com listings. As my season gets closer, I’ve added a couple of races to my schedule. First, the 2012 Army Spring Classic is including USAC categories for non-collegiate racers. It is a two day event with a TTT and circuit race on Saturday, and an ITT hill climb and criterium on Sunday. The race is held each year at the U.S.Military Academy at West Point. I’ll be racing the Cat 4/5 ITT and Crit on Sunday.
Next, I’ve been in contact with the folks from the Wildcat Epic and they have said that the current race date conflict between their event and a NYS MTB Series event will be adjusted with the Hurley Mountain Classic, from the NYS MTB Series, being moved. That opens the door for me to race the Wildcat Epic for the first time. The Wildcat Epic is a 2-day mountain biking experience held in the picturesque Shawangunk Mountains of New York.
Both events are pretty exciting for me. West Point is just such a cool place to visit, and the Wildcat Epic I’ve been wanting to race since it’s inception in 2010. Both will be extremely challenging for me, but I am very much looking forward to both events.
