Game Info

LML 2018 will be 3-24-18, with a backup date of 4-14-18.

Send email to-

In the email, state full name, and either the 'Full' ~80+mi or 'Lite' ~40 mi route. No single speed, fatbike or whatever class, just M or F.

More details to come on the fundraiser, but do expect it to go for good.

Similar drill to last five 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... Year 5 was cancer awareness and fund support to a single Mom.

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!

Race Wrap Up/ MANY THANKS!

Again, THANK YOU RACERS, for your generosity and enjoying all things bike.

Rally at Harry's Cafe...

THANKS VOLUNTEERS (registration/ race non-officials): Anna, Angela, Stoener, Jimmmay, Eddy, Lisa, & Chopper. And much 'THANKS' to my race organizer partner/ wife Dawn she has a knack for this sort of stuff...

A special 'THANKS' to Jana Bell and the Bell family... You are an inspiration of courage.

THANKS TO HARRY'S CAFE: Harry and staff, much appreciated. This wouldn't be what it is without your support. The post race eats/ drinks/ social were excellent.

THANK YOU MILLTOWN CYCLES: Travis, Todd, & Volunteers. Your support makes this event unique and a great way to break up a gravel grind (death march too some) in questionable conditions.

THANK YOU TODD BAUER PHOTOGRAPHY & HOLLYWOOD (network skillz). People check out the pics, purchase at will...  Todd Bauer Photo Link

Hope your warmed up... 85 miles to go.

Note- results on last post are as official as this race is going to get...

Note 2- Ragnarok and Dickie Scramble officials agreed to make our 3 events a series. 100pts to winner,  down to 1pt for 100th place. Tie breaker is where you finished in the 'Queen Stage' of all things gravel (Ragnarok). Will use this site to tally score.

We need a name for this 3 race gravel deal? Suggestions?

or just call it the '3 Race Gravel Deal...' [ha]

Last- next year will do the LML loop backwards/ the real forward.
