Well, I know I published my sidebar schedule a while back, but here is the expanded, up to date schedule for 2012 (subject to change without further notice, void where prohibited):
Next up is the Spring Fling Criterium Series from 25 of February until 24th of March on every Saturday in Lawrence, KS. I am not sure if this will actually happen, as nothing has been published, but I'd like to do a few, despite the long drive to get there. I'd like to see how I stack up against my roadie brethern as I've only done a few crits, and those were back a few years. If you've never seen a crit, it is like European F1 car racing but on bikes. This is WAY too much fun! Even though I crashed (or was crashed in my case) in my second crit, I still love these to death. And a great way to check your fitness level or hack out a lung!
Another race that isn't published yet is the Fancy Creek Trail Race, a nice 5 mile trail race near Manhattan, KS. I am branching out in the races I am doing, and given the short race season I have, I am in the "not too choosy" section, and this one fit. I just hope it goes off, since it sounds like fun and it's close to home.
So that is my entire season, three whopping months! Of course I would have a lot more races (sometimes up to three a month) but not this year. I am planning on doing whatever races they have in Afghanistan and running the Army Ten Miler-satellite race, so that will be fun in October!
So if anyone has any races that I missed and think I should try before I leave in April, let me know and I might just show up on race day!
Take care all!
