any endurance mtb races in july or august?

So far I have done 0 races, but, I am training for a bunch right now. I have been riding XC for over a year and I am a good rider( my friend is sponsored and i keep up fine, and I have ridden with velodrome racers a lot) and I was wondering if you guys could tell me about some good endurance races?

thanks

The NORBA National at Tamarack, ID (Aug. 29 - Sept. 1) will have a Marathon race. I think it's the only NMBS venue this year that will have the marathon. Might be good - - Tamarack is a brand new venue and should have the terrain for it (think McCall/Sun Valley).

I have signed up for the Wilderness 101 in PA 7/26 and the Hampshire 100k in August.

they meet your qualifications.

EDIT: if you show up to the wilderness 101 and whoop tinker, you are sure to get some sort of sponsorship.
