Preliminary 2008 NMBS Schedule

I received an email this morning outlining the NORBA Nationals NMBS schedule for 2008. While I haven't seen this confirmed anywhere (especially the NORBA website), here is the proposed schedule:
  • NMBS #1: Southridge Park, Fontana, California (Mar 27-30)
  • NMBS #2: Nova Nationals, Fountain Hills, Arizona (Apr 3-6)
  • NMBS #3: Firestone Santa Ynez Valley Mountain Bike Classic, Santa Barbara, California (May 16-18)
  • NMBS #4: Deer Valley, Park City, Utah (June 26-29)
  • NMBS #5: Showdown at Sugar Mountain, North Carolina (July 3-6) CANCELLED!
  • NMBS #6: East Coast National, Windham, New York (July 10-13)
  • NMBS #7: Snowmass, Colorado (Aug 14-17)
  • NMBS #8: Tamarack Resort, McCall, Idaho (Aug 28 - Sept 1)
Obviously, since this hasn't been published on the official site, this is still subject to change (and if last year was any indication, it will).

If this is correct, it looks like most of the 2007 sites are back along with some new ones. Of particular interest is the final site up in Idaho - it's only 12 hours from the Bay Area. It's also interesting that the proposed San Jose stop hasn't gotten rescheduled. And it looks like Angel Fire also dropped. Hopefully that means that they got a UCI race.

UPDATE: It looks like dhRENO has all this information and more.

UPDATE (10/25/07): Sugar Mountain has cancelled their 2008 involvement.
UPDATE (11/08/07): The official schedule has been posted. There are several changes so click over to see it.

Please Note:

The official name of the Los Olivos (not Santa Barbara) NMBS event is "The Santa Ynez Valley National presented by Platinum Performance."
