Tour of Kensington

Where's the website, and when is it? RyanF won't shut up about it on his blog, and I was surprised by this little cherub when I checked the blog today...

(on the topic of winning the ToK)
Q. If not you who?

Ryanf- Potentally CrimsonKarter21(Mitch), if he is riding. He has the exprience and the talent."

Now I need to go.

I can't find the website. But midwestcyclinggroup.com has a forum where you can ask about it. Joe will respond to that.

It's a fun road race. Hilly by Michigan standards. Rollers.

RyanF is baiting you.

I looked on google, found the results for 2007 and went to the midwest cycling group site, which hasn't been unpdated since June.

I think RyanF is baiting me. I might block some wind for him, then crush his soul on the massive 25% grade mountains.

"guads" is a bikeforums meme that grew out of the ryanf sock puppet.

I'll be there for cat 4. Its a great race. The TT is actually really fun, as it starts on the top of a hill, then goes to some very light rolling stuff, then you turn around, and have to sprint up the hill.

The date is listed on MBRA.org

I've heard that it's going back to just a road race. No TT or crit this year.

You know, from what I gather off the intrawebbiez, there's a bit of a conference where everyone with a race more-or-less asks for a weekend. (Perhaps Event can chime in...) ToKV was 'confirmed' for two days. No mention of a change on MCG's website.

If this info is wrong, I'm taking out my aggression on all of you.

You have angered ElJamoquio.

They don't have the money and they lost money last year because of multiple uses of the ambulance i heard. it sucks hard, but unless a title sponsor pulls through no stage race.

Well, ****, people have to drive their own damn self to the hospital. Problem solved.

I'm a little surprised they lost money last year, what with the ~$70 entry fee, but Joe did mention something about scraping by during the actual race.

Where are you guys hearing this, anyway?
