Hello,
I am relatively new to the DC metro area and I am looking to get back into the cross country racing scene. I moved from Wisconsin where we had the Wisconsin Off-Road Series which is an awsome 12 race series with races all around the state. As far as I can tell there are now state series out here. I am wondering what kind of race organization there is out here. Any links or info would be greatly appriciated. Thanks

http://www.masuperseries.com/2009/ - closest thing around here to the WORS, a lot of the races are up north though, PA mostly. They have the new 2010 schedule out now.

I'm originally from wisconsin too and live in Baltimore now, damn good trails around here, similiar to home actually, but a lot more people on em (nothing like the remoteness of say the CAMBA trails). If you want some people to ride with here, hit me up, I'm always down to tear it up with sconi' folk.

btw, GO PACK GO!

I promote the SNOTCYCLE mentioned above. WE are actually having 4 races this year. Here is the email I sent out last month:

Plum Grove Cyclery and Go Time Racing are proud to announce our 2010 Mountain Bike race calendar. We want to thank each and every one of you that has participated in our events in the past for helping make our events successful.
We have added another new event, bringing our total to 4 MTB events for 2010. We are also adding a new points series for all our events over the course of the year, more details are below. We have also heard from the contenders and will be primarily awarding CASH at all of this year's events. Cash Payouts have been increased across the board and will be award to top 3 places in all categories.

This is a new Timing Services and Race Management Company established in late 2009 by Rob and his wife, Kelly. We have purchased our own RFID chip timing system to use at all Plum Grove/Go Time Races. We will also be available to provide Timing services and Management services to other races in the area, including Cycling and Running events. We are currently working on our website, www.gotimeracing.com, but can be reached at [email protected] to answer any questions.
