I'm starting to work on my race schedule for 2014. I live in Columbus, Ohio and I'm looking for some of the biggest cross country mountain bike races in the surrounding areas - Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Western Pennsylvania, West Virgina & Kentucky.
Looking for events that have a cross country race and are well-attended. As an extra bonus, having a festival-like atmosphere would be fun too. Hoping to add 4 or 5 events to the calendar on top of my local series. Any suggestions?
