I find it frustrating that

I find it frustrating that there are so many conflicting race dates for the Mountain States Cup with the US Cup series next year. In the past, or so it seems, the MSC planners have taken the national calendar race dates into consideration to prevent too much overlap. This year, I'll have to decide which race I want to attend. Big Bear or Chalk Creek? Angel Fire or Bump-n-Grind? Wisconsin Cup or Crested Butte? One date is even competing in state - Sand Creek or Blast the Mass? And, a yet to be officially scheduled race in Mount Snow will overlap either Keystone or Telluride.
I love to race as much as possible, but this effectively cuts the number of races I can participate in by five.
Does anyone else find this annoying, on top of already high entry fees for regional level races?
