REGISTRATION IS OPEN.

Similar drill to last four editions. Harry's Cafe in Lakeville to Milltown Cycles in Faribault, and return. Race will be ~80 miles on a mix of gravel, pavement, and as much off road and questionable stuff as mother nature will allow. Start will be from Harry's at 8AM, park in the Walmart lot.

Race will be capped at ~100 people. If you showed last year you are automatically in but email must be sent, and I play favorites.

Something more than just a bike race- FUNDRAISER.

Fundraiser history- Year 1 we raised $1300 for a young man in need. Year 2 we generated 400 lbs of food and $ for local food shelf. Year 3 the raiser brought in more than $2000 for a beautiful woman fighting cancer. Year 4 (last year) we rallied with the Bauers in support of Jason and his fight...

Ethos: You are responsible for you. If you get stuck in one spot, you gotta get yourself out of it. Bring a phone, straight key for an SOS, or sky flares.

NOTE: The course will not be the same as last year. So disregard your bootleg GPS map. You rely on it, and it will cheat you.

THANKS TO MILLTOWN CYCLES & HARRY'S CAFE for their continued support!

"Racer's Redaay..."

"Charge!!!"

Saturday, 8AM, we head south via tulips to Milltown Cycles. Milltown Ben and his guys will have the welcome mat set out for you... Once you've had your fill of all things Faribault, time to head North back to Harry's cafe, where you can belly up to the scratch kitchen for some great dining, and drinks. (courtesy drink/ desert tickets to the first 40 donations).

Recon'd the route today. Roads are in great shape, don't let the iffy picture concern you. It's allgood (specially for the fats). Unfortunately we are going to have to keep it between the lines, my gauntlet (secret trails, swamp, ditch, pasture, etc) options have been removed from the route for many reasons. Not to fret, you wont get cheated on the day.


"Forward... March!" 
REMINDERS:
  • Parking is the overflow Walmart lot just north of Harry's.
  • Registration is 7AM-8AM. We need to be quick so we can get the race on at 8. 
  • Registration, inside Harry's, sign waiver/ select your class M, F, or Fat, get number plate, tulip notes, and pickup your race gift. Bathroom available if you need it (you will). 
  • Swag Swap. Bring it to registration, and swap after the race at Harry's.
  • Fundraiser... What an awesome opportunity to race a bike for free and use whatever funds you are able to contribute to something greater... Recommended donations are $20 for the FUNDRAISER, and $5-10 for event insurance and race overhead. 
  • Fundraiser- the first 40 people to donate at the race get a complimentary drink or desert ticket courtesy of Harry of Harry's Cafe. 
  • Chris Gibbs and C5 Photography will be documenting the race. His work is excellent. 
  • HealthSource Chiropractic will be at registration and demoing RockTape. 
  • Local newspaper covering the event... http://sunthisweek.com/
  • Social, swag swap, awards- we have a corner table reserved in the bar from 2-5PM. Come speak the language with us LCR's and Milltown's... 
If you get the opportunity make sure you 'thank' Harry and Milltown Ben for supporting this one off event... and THANK YOU for coming out to play and donate what you are able...


NOTE- I know, you all are thinking he never mentioned anything about bike type or tires... MTB, Crossbike, warbirds, freebirds, 29rs, 26's, 650B/ recombant, studds, knobs, endos, furious freds... It's all good (at some point). "Riddle on" as we LCR's say.
