I'm interested. 

I know others are as well.  I'm not sure what trails would be able/willing to host an event that the local racers are willing to battle traffic to drive to.

Would Rocky River Trail be an option?

RRT falls into the "great trail to ride, would be horrible to race" scenario. Unless you made use of the double track quad trails he has, passing would be a nightmare. I doubt he would ever go for it, with the volume of people parking, that is enough to shut it down.

I think we are better off with some sort of short track format. Do an A group (1 hour) and a B group. (45 minutes)
Renaissance was a great option, sadly that isn't anymore.
I think Poston could be really cool. They have parking/trails to pass people on (thinking lake loop)
Fisher Farm has parking and puts on a CX race, I'm sure you could easily cut in and out of a couple of trails and it would be pretty rad.
USNWC would be another good idea, but I'm sure they wouldn't be interested. Do short loops of east main Smiley

I wish I had the funds to get into race promotion.. for some reason.
