Race Info

Nothing more than annoying than posting things like logistical information rather than just spewing my random thoughts through a keyboard out to the web.  Regardless working through annoying tasks is just part of life, so here it is.  I'm going to deal with this in the five stage plan of WHO/WHAT/WHEN/WHERE/HOW/EXTRA, and hopefully get all the relevant information out there.  

WHAT: SingleSpeed Montana

WHO: I'm in charge of the race with some help from the Muleterro Gang.  

WHEN: Saturday August 29, 2009

WHERE: Leverich Canyon on the outskirts of Bozeman, MT

HOW: The race is going to start about eight and a half miles up Hyalite Canyon Road (something like a half hour drive from Bozeman).  To get there follow these simple steps:
1.) Drive South on Hyalite Canyon Rd for about 5.6 miles
2.) Hang a left (heading east) onto FS 3159
3.) When you come to a fork in the road (6.2 miles into your journey), stay to the left
4.) At your next fork in the road (6.4 miles in), stay to the right
5.) At the next junction (8.1 miles) go to the left

The road is a gravel road, so be sure to leave the tricked out Cadillac with no ground clearance at home.  The road will be marked, and there will be parking at the start finish area, however try to carpool with a friend because parking will be tight.  Depending on his hangover Cory Hardy will be on hand to provide valet services (bow tie and all).  Please tip him so he can raise money to get a proper haircut.  Here is a link to a map google of how to get the start finish area.   

EXTRA: Please be ready to have some fun and deal with some shennanigans.  This is the first race I will be attempting to put on, so I'm sure there will be some bumps along the road on the day of.  If issue pop up, they will be dealt with as quickly as possibly.  For those who show up and partake in the fun, I have a feeling you wont be leaving with a bitter taste in your mouth.  If you have any extra questions feel free to email me and ask.  Finally I would like to thank all of the folks who have helped me along the way.  Mainly, Surly and Drunkcyclist, who are sponsoring the "Good Times Award", and the picture below should give you some insight to what is involved in earning this award.
