2008 NMBS Finals Moved From Tamarack

The NMBS finals, originally scheduled for Tamarack in Idaho, are being moved.
The final round of the 2008 National Mountain Bike Series has been moved from Tamarack Resort, Tamarack, Idaho to a location that has yet to be revealed.

"We are awaiting confirmation from a past NMBS venue that everything is in place for the series finals to be held there, and then we can make the announcement," said series director Jeff Frost of Bluewolf Events.

In its fourth year of operation Tamarack Resort is in the midst of ongoing development, but it already offers an outstanding mountain bike trail network capable of hosting world-class competition. "Expected funding for some key pieces needed for the NMBS is being delayed. To ensure that we can host the best Finals possible, we are deferring being the event site until another year," explained Ken Rider, Tamarack Resort Director of Marketing & Sales.

A press release will be distributed as soon as the replacement venue for 2008 is confirmed.
I am hoping this means that it will be held at Mammoth (hope, hope) or Big Bear (socal, but still roadtrip-able) -- but a lot of sites are certainly possible.
