i have been looking around for races in the mass area for mtn biking. i found the three route 66 events that will be in mass and i found one duathalon event that is in mass. i want to hit more races but i just don't enjoy driving 2+ hours to race. do any of you guys know of any other races i may have missed that i could hit up. i thought borderland state park had a race but couldn't find it anywhere. any help/info on any mass area races would be greatly appreciated.

thanks,
adam

Adam,
There was a race series in greenfeild on monday nights last, not sure about this year should ckeck with the local shops.
There is a race at U-Mass every year also.
I race the Root 66 series, you should think about a few of the CT. races also.

There is a group of mountain bikers in western mass called Western Mass Mountain bikers who get together and just ride all over. You can join the group thru facebook.

adam,
at all of the root 66 races you can buy a one day racing licence. it is usual 3-5 bucks. any race that has a USA cycling permit # you can buy a day licence.

There was a race at Massasoit State Park last April, the owner of the LBS who sponsored it told me it's happening again this year. I'll post the info once I find out for sure.

FYI to all reading this, Hop Brook Dam is not being held this year; the Army Corps. (manage the land that the race is held on) is scheduled to conduct a 10yr review of the dam on the site and therefore the race will not be held. The Root 66 site has been updated to reflect this.

First Root 66 race will be Winding Trails on 04/17. First EFTA race will be Burlingame TT on 04/03.

anybody got a map of one of the past races at massasoit. not looking for the trail map but maybe one of those gps maps of someone who did the race in the past couple years. makes it a little funnier when you have a set course you wanna hit up.

thanks,
adam

road at massasoit today and ended up riding with three other guys who did the race last year and we road the loop from last year and they seem to think since it is the same mileage it will be the exact same loop. i used the gps on my iphone to track it not sure how to post it but if someone wants it pm me and i will try my best to get it to you.
