Nice work Scott and thanks!  Not sure if Velodirt's Oregon Outback fits on here but it is worth mention.  There's definitely going to be a fair amount of racing going down, haven't heard anything on Spot tracking though.

Then of course there's more road bikepacking with the Transcon. August 9th.
http://www.transcontinentalrace.com/

There are rumors of a Trans Afrika road race in in October, it's just a rumor though, I would say it hasn't quite hit the planning stages.  It would be cool though, a triple crown of road bikepacking!

Oh yeah and JayP's Backyard Fat Pursuit March 1st.

Thanks guys, those are all great additions.

I also added the World Cycle race, back for another year.  I love their tag line - "If you want a bigger race, find a bigger planet."

Scott,
The 2nd annual California Sierra Trail Race will be on Friday July 18th, 2014. I'm thinking of a five day stage race as an option as well.

8/10 seems kind of late for the CTR.  Full monsoon action by then for sure.  I had hoped to do it this year after just missing my opportunity last year.  But I go back to work (college professor) on 8/11.  Bummer.

I was just writing back to Stefan on that.  Personally I think it's a crapshoot at any time in late July and all throughout August.  Some of my best CT tour days have happened in August.  But that's just my take.

BTW, his server is still down, not likely to come back up any time real soon, it sounds like.

Any word on the CTR direction for the mass start? Are we flipping back to Denver > Durango this year?

Den -> Durango I do believe.  Consider that unofficial for now, though.

Why is it tough - school?  Not firm yet, no.

ne14cycling - Thanks for the GSB link (have been in touch with David King about tracking already), and Jason - looking good!
