- Pacifica, CA-based RideSFO has signed up a bunch of new sponsors for the Corral Hollow Downhill. This race is really shaping up nicely.
- I've added the Downieville Classic dates (July 28th - 30th, 2006) to the calendar. These dates are still not 100% confirmed but they are looking very likely. July is looking like a great month for racing: Cougar Mountain, NORBA Championships and Downieville are scheduled for three consecutive weekends.
- I'll be posting details of the Firestone Classic later this week. Although it is not really NorCal, I am a sucker for the Central California coast and might just have to use this race as an excuse to go for the weekend.
- NORBA has updated their website for 2006. It looks like they added another race to the early schedule: NOVA Desert Classic (outside Phoenix, AZ on March 24 - 26, 2006). Strangely enough, only the Marathon portion of the event is part of the NORBA schedule (they also have XC and Super D).
- The Lemurian Shasta Classic is now open for registration. They also posted a few course maps.
- The Sea Otter Classic has posted their XC maps in pdf.
- They posted some pictures from MTB Challenge #1 over at James Pratt Photography.
