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!

Wrap Up (Food Drive, Results)

This group of knuckheads that likes to ride bikes in questionable conditions raised 405 pounds of food and $105 for the Lakeville Resource Center (local food shelf)...

THANK YOU FELLOW RACERS!

Race Details (some of you are numbers types)- 95 were suppose to show, 80 at the line, 75 finishers. Winning time came in at 1:33PM, we left around 8:45AM (apply your math skills). We covered 82 miles (some more, some less, in a very quick gravel/ roady time). The gravel might be faster now than it will be for the rest of the Spring/ Summer.

NOTE- Results are updated with those that disclosed they missed the climb to knowwhere/ nowhere. It was a good little kicker. The day prior I couldn't get my jeep up it in 4WD (almost slide backward into the ditch), but I was hoping the ice would be gone, it was. Answered prayer.

  5. +1. Well put together race and great food at Harry's Cafe.

    A fine mix of grass roots racing, fun, new experiences, and good kind of pain.
