Here is a race that is coming up in Lincoln at the end of April. It is becoming a big stage race in the region that is begining to attract Pros and people from all over. I definitely recommend checking it out if you want to try some tough road racing this year.

Heartland Series' first race at High Noon this Sunday will hopefully not be canceled. Check their website Saturday evening to verify & keep your fingers crossed.
Come one, come all... and don't forget to bring protective eye wear!! Lansen, now is when I wish we had prototyped a pair of those highly breathable pair. If they don't cancel the race, I might just drill tiny holes into old pair like we talked about.

- Nebraska Psycowpath NORBA series http://www.nebraskacyclingnews.com/
- MO/KS Heartland Series http://www.heartlandrace.com/
- MO/KS Midwest Fat tire Series http://www.midwestfattireseries.com/index1.html
Some dates seem to be conflicting with personal comittments for me, but I should be able to get between 7 and 10 races under my belt this year.
I think I'm in a wedding the weekend of the Kanza, so probably won't make that one. Plenty of other races available this year though. Between the three series, I'm pretty sure you could do at least 2 races per weekend from April through September if you wanted.
Noted that there are no races in St. Joseph this year. Seems like a bit of a shame, since we have several great trails here - and a whole bunch of guys willing to do trail work.
If there are interested parties, I bet we could get on the Nebraska Series in place of the Indian Caves race that was deleted from this year's schedule. We know Krug is a great race course, and Corby would be an excellent venue too - although the start/finish would be difficult to set up safely with the parkway running right there.

Heading East, looking at the old tree house........
Trails are clear, but there will still be a lot of work before they are fast. Lots of grooming to come.

I've thought about taking the bike w/ studded tires and riding but think I will stick with hiking... who knows what conditions will be like and plus it's clean right now!... might as well save it till race day when it could turn out to be a very sloppy first lap. ;0)
If anyone interested in going tomorrow you can call my house tonight at 387-8022.

The race is 111km through some of the toughest and most amazing terrain I have ever seen. Met some interesting people, had some enduro induced hallucenations, got lost at one point, and almost quit a couple times, even saw a bear the night before. It is a great test of stubborn bullheadedness.

It was very slick, and I probably could have walked it faster. In fact, with melting temperatures today, and many slick spots already, I might go for a hike today and call it good. Not willing to risk a broken bone for a mediocre ride. Seems like snow and ice has disappeared from most of the forest floor, except on the trails. Not sure what that is all about.
Slick trails - started doubting myself....
Very Slick Crossing - Didn't even try this one, barely made it across on two feet....
Waterfall was pretty cool - All frozen up.....
