Been away from the board for a while. Partly because I thought the new WTC site would be sufficient. Well, I just came by and found the WTC links including the old one to Caprock Multiport are dead as a doornail. So disregard the WTC links above.

The Texas Tech Cycling site has a new forum at http://www.texastechcycling.org/p/forum.html#/ This seems to be where the Lubbock cycling action is now, both road and mountain.

You are welcome here too. And if any demonstrably trustworthy person is interested in joining me as forum moderator or Admin2, let me know. I am not a control freak, but want to see cycling info available for the Lubbock area.

The West Texas Endurance folks are nvolved in managing some local/regional events. Here is their website. http://www.westtexasendurance.com/

Have to comment that these events are not to my mind well publicized. Didn't know there was a duathlon coming Apr 20 til today when I first heard of the Willie McCool half marathon that was run a week ago that I did not know about in advance.
