Tentative 2012 racing schedule

Yes, I know I owe you some reviews, and they are coming. First, I wanted to announce the tentative 2012 road racing schedule for Quixotic Raindrop Cycling (which is just me ... for now!).

Please note that some of these dates are estimated and based on last year's dates (in most cases they appear to be based less on specific dates, and more on which weekend). Also, these are primarily events in or around Tucson. There will be more added as the season progresses and as USA Cycling updates their calendars.

23 January: Avondale Criterium; Avondale, AZ
25 February: Tucson Criterium Series (#1); Tucson, AZ
2-4 March: Tucson Bicycle Classic; Tucson, AZ
7 April: El Tour de Mesa; Phoenix, AZ*
21 April: Old Pueblo Grand Prix; Tucson, AZ
28 April: Tour of the Tucson Mountains; Tucson, AZ*
3 June: Thunder Road Time Trial; Sahaurita, AZ
8 July: 3 Bears Time Trial Series (#3); Red Rock, AZ
21 October: Sonoita-Patagoina Time Trial; Sonoita and Patagoina, AZ
17 November: El Tour de Tucson; Tucson, AZ*

*: Not "races" per se; these events are rides and benefit various charities.

In order to upgrade my USA Cycling racing license for 2013 I'll need to start in 10 mass-start races, and I only have seven scheduled so far, so there will be some additions. I was looking at possibly the Colossal Cave Stage Race, which is a three-stage race just like the Tucson Bicycle Classic (a Time Trial, a Road Race, and a Criterium), and there are a few other time trial and crit races around the state that are possible.
