Folks who raced the Cedar Cross in 2013 (hopefully) remember that we had Kayne Kirchner  kick off the race by playing the Star Spangled Banner.  Nothing says patriotism like a teenager shredding the guitar before riding 113 miles of gravel and singletrack…and then chugging beers and eating baked potatoes afterwards. I’m happy to say he’ll be back this year to do it again. If all goes well, Kayne will be freestyling some guitar jams before the National Anthem as well.

This weekend I’ll be out clearing trails, so watch facebook for trail updates. Remember, this year we’re using the full course so it WILL be harder than last year.

Speaking of hard…Holy shit the Tour of Hermann was totally badass!!!
