OK, it’s March, three months into the year, and buying a 2010 calendar might seem a bit belated.

• Germany’s Sabine Spitz, the reigning Mountain Bike Marathon World Champ, Olympic cross-country gold medalist and fifth overall on the World Cup in 2009.
• Norway’s Lene Byberg, silver medalist in cross-country at the 2009 MTB Worlds in Canberra, Australia, winner of the XC at the 2009 World Cup stop in Bromont, Canada and fourth in the World Cup overall last season.
• Julie Krasniak of France, a top-50 World Cup cross-country racer.
• Germany’s 2009 4-Cross national champion, Steffi Marth.
