Shut up, that's why!
Yes it's true! I am promoting two Kermesses in February (not to be confused with the 2012 Keller Rohorback Road Race also in February but without any dirt). More details to come -- just waiting to wind through the new, improved USACycling permit system. These races are the first to snap to the new system that assigns WSBA/USACycling points all recognized categories regardless of whether that Category is it's own field -- not that different from how we did the WA Cup series in 2011.
Also, too, dirt! The these will have more dirt and I am recommending big big tires! Maybe a cyclocross bike -- but like the other Kermesses these aren't technical courses.
Finally, why February?? Well because turnout drops in summer. It just does. And I have you know, a job and summer is my busy time. So, if you want more summer races -- promote them.
Actually, don't. One thing that worked well last year was having one race a weekend. It made that race viable instead of splitting the market.
