US National Calendars crank up

The USA Cycling National Gravity and Ultra-Endurance Calendars will kick off this weekend in Nevada and Texas.

The fourth Annual Mob N Mojave Mountain Bike Race Festival will begin the gravity racing action in Boulder City, Nevada, on February 13-15. The event will offer three days of winter dual slalom, super D and downhill racing in the desert. Pro downhill racers will be vying for US$2,000 in cash. Saturday's action will begin with a dual slalom in the morning on a "Y" shaped course, on which racers will start in separate tracks, but merge for some exciting elbow-to-elbow racing. The super D race will be held Saturday afternoon on a challenging two-mile course. Sunday's main event will be the downhill race, over a 1.5-mile track featuring classic Bootleg Canyon Terrain. The race weekend will wrap up with the Downhill Chainless Open Race.

In addition, the Mas o Menos 100km marathon will start the Ultra-Endurance calendar in Texas.
