Amateur Races - 2010

Amateur Races - 2010
Hi all,

To combat dwindling levels of motivation (it's cold, dark, and rainy in Tennessee), I'd like to come up with a COMPLETE racing calendar for next year. I've searched through the forums and come across a *few* racing calendars, but nothing comprehensive. Here's where you come in:

a) post links to master calendars (be they state, regional, national, etc.)
b) post links to individual races you plan on doing (crits, circuit/road races, time trials, etc.)
c) share your experiences with former races which were horrible or great - that is, why have you chosen to do X race in 2010, and why have you chosen never to do Y race again...

Woot woot!

Geez - in the time it took me to post a reply to my own thread, 5 other people already had.
I'm in central Tennessee, 40 miles west of Chattanooga, on top of the Cumberland Plateau.
Thanks for the links CAAD8.
For those on the other side of the globe - by all means, feel free to post. Lots of folks like to travel...

Are you the same Joe Brew that's a runner and has a dad that works for GRU? I train with some of the guys you used to beat up on before going up to Tennessee (Scott and Mike).

I'm not soft. I'm just in touch with my feminine side.
