After much thought (about 10 minutes) I have set my schedule for 2010.
There are a number of changes from the past years plans.
You may notice the endurance theme later in the year. This is because the shorter races in the past have burned me out by August, why fight it? Long races are fun, too.
Most of the races I picked were picked because of field size. I purposely left some races out (even though the courses are fun) because they just don't pull large enough fields. This in no way is a knock on anyone or any particular series, I just like the bigger fields better.
At the time I'm writing this I will be putting my toe on the line in about a week. January 30th is the earliest in the year I've ever started racing and there is no better place to start than Arizona...
Check back sometime in July to see if I'm still as enthusiastic.

A little inside joke or a riddle if you will:
"sand bagger alert:
sport single speed is meant for SPORT riders....competing in the 8 day absa cape epic in South Africa (on a rigid SS), well that's a bit beyond the grasp of a sport racer, I think everyone will agree.....nobody likes a sand bagger."
