USA Cycling 2008 National Championship Calendar

USA Cycling has announced their National Championships for 2008. The interesting (i.e. MTB) ones are below:
USA Cycling’s 60,000 licensed racers will have a lot to gear up for in 2008 as USA Cycling announced this week the dates and locations of the majority of its 15 national championship events. The USA Cycling National Championship Calendar offers an opportunity for competitive cyclists of all ages, abilities and disciplines to compete for a coveted stars-and-stripes jersey that signifies a national champion. With the sites for five national championship events still to be announced, dates and venues for USA Cycling’s 10 additional national championship races are set. 

2008 USA Cycling National Championship Calendar
July 4: USA Cycling Mountain Bike Marathon National Championships (Breckenridge, Colo.)
July 17-20: USA Cycling Mountain Bike National Championships (Mount Snow Resort – West Dover, Vt.)
August 2-3: USA Cycling 24-Hour Mountain Bike National Championships (9-Mile County Forest - Wausau, Wis.)
October 24-26: USA Cycling Collegiate Mountain Bike National Championships (Banner Elk, N.C.)

These are all the same sites as last year (and none of them remotely close to NorCal). I guess we can take solace in the fact that the WORLD singlespeed championships will be held in our backyard this year.
