Hey everybody, it's time once again for this very special race! July 21st! NYC!
Some of you may remember the original D.U.M.B.O scramble (http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread.php?t=180617&highlight=scramble) from last year.
People came from all over and threw down over cobblestones, alleys and bridges in one of NYC's oldest-looking hoods. It was a lot of fun.
This year, the Brooklyn-based alleycat is back with a lil somethin' extra!
For one, it's a two-person team race.
For two, you're gonna be expected to be quick as well as durable...
More info forthcoming.
Also: checkpoint helpers needed!!
See you on the streets!
A COUPLE OF IMPORTANT NOTES FOR THIS RACE.
As is now known, last year's race focused on the individual's struggle to overcome the terrain and outride the competition.
This year you and your teammate will have the opportunity to divide and conquer! So keep in mind these two pointers:
1. stay in contact. you may not be with your partner the entire time! Bring your cellphones or radios and communicate. You may find success quicker this way - or it may slow you down!
2. teamwork. even though you will be racing parts of the course alone, you are still on a team and can be expected to perform as such. you may be able to help your partner out during the course of the race.
...anyways, I'm just putting that out there now so you have a slight idea of what to expect on race day.
and now...it's picture time, people!
