2006 Schedule Well it is time to start thinking about what races to do in 2006. The MNSCS schedule has been posted, as well as the WORS schedule. Any idea what races are near you Brian? I will be doing the Arrowhead 135 winter ultra marathon race February 6th-8th. Pat White from the Ski and Bike Shop has confirmed he will be doing this one as well. Which is a great relief for me. It will be nice having someone else with to push me, and to pass the time. I hope the weather and the wild cooperate. Pat you should start a blog. Trans-Iowa race April 29th-30th assuming I get in. Brian, Fox, Pat and Sears have all expressed interest in this one as well. Hopefully we all get in and all finish. Anyone else going to do this race? The 24 Hours of Afton is definitely on the list. This is always a great race on a really challenging course. It's also a fun atmosphere with the Litchey's entertaining everyone. Hi Trent and Tonia. The 24 Hour MTB Nationals will be in Brian's neck of the woods this year. July 29th-30th. There is talk of doing this one as a team. Should be a lot of fun. I would also like to do more road racing next season. The ND and MN calenders aren't up yet, but both state championships should be on the schedule. Maybe a trip to the Wisconsin state championships will be in the cards too. The Headwater 100 was my best race last year. I definitely want to do that one again. Maybe we could put together a good group of riders and win it next year. No rain dances though. Other than that maybe a Triathalon and some cyclo cross racing in the fall. Anyone have other races that they are looking forward to? Sound off.

You forgot to put in about coming down to Colorado!

I saw that MNSCS posted their schedule yesterday too. 22 mtb races already on the schedule with just the MNSCS and the WORS races alone! Not including Afton, TI, 24 Nats, roadies, ND races, and cross. Phew.. :)

Alot of the MNSCS and the WORS are on the same day though, which sucks. We should definitely plan on meeting up at the Eau Claire WORS race, as that one is the closest drive for you.

Not sure if I will make it back for any ND mtb races, as it would be such a long drive and there are already so many mtb races on the schedule. Maybe some RR though. Looks like the ND State RR will be the Prairie Rose road race next year (it's in Fargo), instead of having it separately in Jamestown. I would like to head back for both the ND and MN state RR, as well as the WI State RR. Heck, the MN State RR is practically in WI! ;)

Then of course there's Afton and 24 Hr Nats at 9Mile. I would like to do Headwaters as well, being that I never got a chance to do that one. What about the Horribly Hilly 100s?? We have a lot of races next year Simmons! We'll have to plan it out more at Xmas time to figure out which races we can both make it to...

A trip to Colorado is in there too. When is a good time for you Bill? Definitely a lot of planning to do. Horribly Hilly 100's is a must as well. Registration date to be announced soon. Hopefully you don't oversleep for Prairie Rose again Brian :)When are you coming up?

Last year when I was in CO your sister wouldn't answer her phone, Bill...maybe she was avoiding me. :)

Me oversleep for PR?? Someone has that backwards Dave! No hard feelings though, as I got my Festina watch because of that... We'll be home the Fri before Xmas until that Mon.
