Bored in the off-season? Want a taste of competition or ready to start your cyclocross training? Think you can doggy-paddle 500 yards in a pond and jog 5k?

USA Productions is hosting the Silicon Valley Mountain Bike Triathlon on June 20th in San Jose. Although labeled “mountain bike,” the bike event is almost tailor-made for cyclocrossers with a 10 mile bike that’s half paved, half trail with a stream crossing and muddy run-up. The short 5k run is all dirt.

The promoter is offering CXM readers a 10% discount to the event.  Event details below:

By adding this off-road triathlon, we’ve turned the Silicon Valley Olympic Distance Triathlon weekend into a two-day celebration of sport. The smaller distances, extra mud and off-road terrain, make this event extra appealing to the first timers, cyclocrossers, mountain bikers and experienced triathletes alike.  This event encompasses a perfectly fit weekend of sport, and is a great introduction to the famous Silicon Valley Olympic Distance Triathlon.

CXM Readers can use promotion code “2009usaevents” for 10% off registration.
