The NOVA National moves to first weekend in April in 2008, and will be the first real test of the 2008 mountain bike race season. The Stage Race format will be the first of the year for most of the professional racers – male and female- many of whom are aspiring for a spot on the 2008 United States Olympic team. The three elements of the professional stage race – Super D – Short Track – Cross Country – will surely test early season fitness. The key event in the Stage Race is the KENDA Cross Country.

Cross Country

Cost: $90 - $105
License: USA Cycling / NORBA
Course Description: Built in the early nineties to host the Cactus Cup, the McDowell Mountain Regional Park competitive track is the best of desert racing – endless singletrack, technically challenging corners and straights, a few high speed descents, a smattering of short steep climbs and the occasional cactus! Most racers will negotiate multiple laps and hope to finish without an up close and personal visit to the hundreds of Cholla, Saguaro cactus that line the 10 mile lap. This course rewards the racer who can remained focused while negotiating the twist and turns of the trail at high speeds. This price may also include the Super D race — I can’t tell from the registration site. Course maps are here.

Marathon

Cost: $60
