Find a mountain that hosts races and participate. I want a Kona stab too. But I can't get one. too poor.

Or go to a local bike shop and ask if they know of any races.

Same here..

But I went on the Norba Site, and actually I got an application for it...

In the app. you put down what event you will be doing. It isn't a separate app. for each race...

Thats the most I can help you w/. I was going to do the Chelan Bike festival race, but I found that I was a much better free rider, than I was at XC, and thats what this race was. So I didn't fill it out.

go to your local ski hill in teh summer, they will most likely hold weekday races and some even a full season complete with prizes and everything
