I would love to hear what your favorite XC style single track mountain bike races are in each state. In marathon running, there is the club called The 50 Staters where people run a marathon in every state of the US. I thought it would be cool to make a 20-30 year goal of doing the same in mountain biking. To see the best of the single track world in each state.
Hit me with your favorite single track races (minimal or no fire road) that either are hosted in your state, or that you have done. Long distance and/or stage races are welcome as well. I am happy to share the complied excel sheet with anyone who would like it in a few weeks after I have a good list going.
