Bikes and a Bulldozer

If you would’ve told me 6 months ago that we’d have over 100 people sign up for this thing, I would’ve laughed in your face. Today we hit 101, and I had to go change my underwear.

We’ve also picked up a few more sponsors. I’m pleased to announce that The Therapy Source, (Owensville, MO),  will be donating Biofreeze samples to all racers.

Dana Goodman, (owner), also said that if we can raise over $1,000 for the Callaway Animal Shelter, she’d release video footage of Corey Case and Adam Hempelmann doing a Zumba class together at her facility. I’m writing out a check as we speak.

And just when I thought things couldn’t get any better, I heard back from Kep Heintz. Kep owns the company that brought us Kep’s Balls. Do me a huge favor and “like” his facebook page. When he hits 1,000 he’s giving away a wool jersey.

I’m excited to say we’ll have an untold quantity of Kep’s delicious pollen balls to give away on raceday. If you want to try them ahead of time, (I recommend the Espresso flavor), you can order some right here.

I just think it’s great that Don Daly won’t be the only one with balls in his mouth on raceday. (Was that too much?)

The Convention and Visitors bureau has prepared a list of Cedar Cross-friendly hotels and their discount rates. You may now find them at the top of the page listed under “Local Hotels”. When reserving a room, be sure to let them know you’re racing Cedar Cross and you want the “Bob Jenkins discount”. That’ll get you an extra roll of toilet paper and one disposable toothbrush. You’re welcome.

The course has been finalized, but I don’t plan on releasing any route details until the final days leading up to the race. (I’d rather not give anyone the advantage or pre-riding.)

I also understand there are a large number of folks interested in a shorter course. I’ll work on that, but there’s a lot of other stuff to handle first.

Raceday is less than 3 months away.
