    Okay, I have successfully survived and finished my first 100 mile MTB event... The Brian Head Epic100....

    So, I have an idea for 2006...... I want to do 3 100's within the twelve month calendar. This is an offshoot of the Road Ride 200 mile triple crown for California, which I did in 2004.

    I cannot imagine anything exciting me about road riding right now, but 3 century MTB's.... that get's me going

    What I need is a calendar....... I live outside Los Angeles and would prefer if I could drive to the events...

    so far I am considering:

    -Brian Head (again)
    -Durango 100
    -Park City 100
    -Cream Puff
    -End to End White Rim in one shot

    Anyone have other events I should consider

    It would be a long ass trip for you but the Shenandoah 100 is a great race and certainly would be quite different from the western terrain of the other 100s. There are always people who make the trip cross country for the race.

    Depends what you want, Leadville isn't a "fun" course like BrianHead is. The Cream Puff, though I am biased since I ride those trails, is AWESOME. Yah, throw in an east coaster.

    Well, it isn't, it's a lot of fireroad and drafting is the most important aspect of that race....from what I hear.
