Linden just sent me this.
Whats really cool is that Banshee will have to full on teams competing at all the MSC races.
Banshee Deadbros Racing and Banshee Team Geronimo.
So write the dates in your calender if you can make it out.
I left the sponsors at the bottom because even though Yeti is our competition they still should get the nod for supporting the race series… so don’t rag on me for advertising Yeti on the Banshee blog :P

We’ve been working hard this fall to concoct a schedule that is going to bring you the best racing in the region, the freshest tracks, and new venues so you can experience more of what Colorado has to offer.
Without further ado we are excited to announce our 2010 Mountain States Cup schedule!
The series will kick off in Fruita, Colorado April 24-25 with an early season off-road time trial prologue and epic backcountry cross country race at Rabbit Valley Rally. Then the gravity season kicks in gear alongside the endurance events with the classic Chalk Creek Stampede in Nathrop, CO (May 15-16); Chile Challenge in Angel Fire, NM (June 5-6- not Memorial Day weekend!), Wildflower Rush in Crested Butte, CO (June 26-27); and Blast the Mass in Snowmass Village, CO (July 10-11).
After USA Cycling Mountain Bike National Championships concludes at SolVista in Granby Ranch, CO (July 15-18), the Mountain States Cup takes a turn for new venues including Keystone Revival in Keystone, CO (August 7-8); Full Tilt in Telluride in Telluride, CO (August 22-23); the Winter Park Pursuit in Winter Park, CO (September 4-6); and the Fall Classic in Breckenridge, CO (September 11-12).
