Team Bigfoot Announces Endurance Series

Team Bigfoot has announced their series of Endurance MTB races for 2006:
May 29 (tentative) 12 Hours of Weaverville: It's tough but fun! The 8.9 mile course starts with a 3-mile fireroad climb that pays off with a singletrack descent back to the start/finish. The venue is a high school complete with paved parking, real bathrooms, hot showers, food service and in-town convenience are just minutes away.

July 15 (confirmed) 12 Hours of Humboldt: Come race under the giant redwoods of the Arcata Community Forest at the 5th Annual 12 Hours of Humboldt. Tinker Juarez already calls the course "one of the best I've ridden," and it's gonna get better with some new trails scheduled to be completed before the race. For those of you inlanders wanting to escape the heat, July temps in Arcata are usually high 60's to low 70's...nice!

October 7 (confirmed) Whiskeytown Nine to Five: Our series finale has a great course that's about 70% singletrack and a fantastic venue at the Whiskeytown Lake NEED Camp. Teams can keep expenses down by renting a cabin that sleeps 8 for just $45 a night! Solos who don't mind bunking with new friends can get a bed for just $8 per night.
They are also hosting an Oregon race in August. There should be more information and registration links up on the Team Bigfoot site next week.

UPDATE (07/09/06): More details on 12 Hours of Humboldt posted.

I use Google AdSense, which picks the ads. I was puzzled the first time I saw them too, but they have been advertising here for months. I guess they also do some internet sales.
