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!

Last Call, Let's Race

Points that can cause confusion:
- Registration 6:30-8AM, ship sails at 8:15AM
- Park at Walmart overflow lot adjacent to Harry's
- RAFFLE, sweet prizes, $5/ ticket, $20/ 5 tickets
- SWAG SWAP- Bring something to donate to the race, and take a prize as you finish. NO JUNK
- RACE DONATION- $10 donation will cover overhead costs to put this on. A jar will be at registration. 'THANKS'
- T6 T-SHIRT... We'll be taking a one time order for t-shirts to place after the race. Proceeds from the shirt go to the Bauer's fight.

T6 T-shirt badge- can be ordered

- You will be provided the tulip notes (1 sheet) at registration and check in at Milltown
- Climb's to nowhere and knowhere? You'll find out...
- Make sure you check in at Milltown, even if you bail out, call them.
- You are responsible for you. If you get in a jam, you have to get yourself out of it. Don't call me, I will be racing.

- What else-
Tire selection?- your call, at some point every tire out there will be good. Bike selection?- see previous answer. Keep your shenanigan's a mystery. Water at check point?- yes indeed, and bacon to boot. Restrooms?- for extended visits Walmart accommodations work best. Fat bike class?- nope. SS class?- depends. Expect ~5000' vertical, THANK MILLTOWN FOR THEIR SUPPORT. After race/ awards?- at Harry's, stick around and enjoy the best scratch kitchen dining north of the real Iowa.

Race 2 of 3 for the north iowa Gravel Championships. See Ragnarök results for race 1.
