There will be a full writeup about the race soon, with lots of pictures and some video.
Also, we are planning the next race for sometime early november. More info will be posted about it soon. We already have decided that all the race events will be inside a parking garage, so bad weather shouldnt be as big of a deal.
Looks like the weather is gonna be less than optimal on Saturday. Dont let that discourage you, look at it as an opportunity to show off your cold weather gear and your winter riding skills. Plus theres still alot to win, even if you come in last place in the overall race.
Also weve got 6 cupcakes from TeeAndCakes for the winner.
5 Checkpoints. At each one you will get a PBR bottle cap. On each bottle cap is a playing card. So after the 5 checkpoints each racer will have a 5 card poker hand. Expect to have to chug 'something' at minimum 2 checkpoints.
There are benefits to being back quickly. The top racers will have an advantage, for example First Place might receive a wildcard cap, second gets an extra cap, and so on.
1st thru 3rd will also get a portion of the cash pot (20% - 10% - 5%)
the rest of the pot will goto the person with the best poker hand.
the meeting location is at the buffalo on campus next to folsom field.
follow @BAC_Races for up to date information, Direct Message if you see this and want to help sponsor the event.
Also, i will be handing out spoke cards for the below classifications where they apply.
Yellow - Fastest Overall Time Green - Sprint Points (Checkpoints) PolkaDot - King of the Mountains Points White - Fastest young rider (age<20)> BAC Stage Winner - First person @ each Checkpoint (*)
Get work off if you have to, and Bring your friends !
*** UPDATE ***
Map is POSTED !
"Weve got the checkpoints finalized. And weve put them all in this cool internet thing called 'Google Maps' ! You heard of it ?
To make things fair for everyone we are posting the checkpoints NOW (a week in advance) so that people that come from out of town wont get hosed when it comes time to race.
Hey yall, lets start Thursday night fixed gear rides. Here's why: 1. The cruiser ride sucks/You're over it 2. The cruiser ride is for cruisers (going slow) 3. The people on the cruiser rides are either a. elitist middle aged people or b. underage kids on dept. store mountain bikes 4. Loops is fun but its a pain in the ass to go to Denver all the time 5. We can do whatever we want depending on who's there, meaning we can bomb hills if we want, stop to stunt, drink beers, socialize, we can cruise the creek path, loop downtown, whatever. If we post the route online before the ride people can meet up with us whenever. 6. We can have our own after-parties wherever we want. 7. More of a "fixed gear community" will emerge?
Comment if you're down. -Peter
I wholeheartedly agree with everything peter has said. Lets get this party started. So tomorrow night lets all meet at Cafe Roma, gives us prime access to coffee and liquor. If we need to buy alot more beer we can goto liquor mart.
