Well if it goes off the 11th that's Saturday, surely you will be too drunk to go home that night. Unless you have a driver.

one 40? To make the trip and not stay for montreal's famous rejoicing and women? A crime is being committed here me thinks.

From Tom the Organizer:

Due to the unfortunate effects of Global Warming, the latest forecast calls for 4 degrees Celcius (above freezing) over three days prior to the scheduled date, and 70% chance of rain.

* The Old Port has decided to POSTPONE the Ice cup and re-schedule it for next SATURDAY Feb 11th.

Sorry about the logistical nightmare, but we rather have the Cup a week later rather then not have it at all.

I am not certain about the IDs. If you want, I will ask around for you, but you will find reliable information on travel from US to Canada more readily available in your city. I suspect a drivers license or similar is enough for US citizens, but you cant go wrong with the passport.

What city are you coming from? How many are you? (how much couchspace you need?) Let me know if you are still coming, given the date change, and I will get back to you with a number to call when you get in.

thanks for your understanding,

Tom
Montreal Ice Cup crew.

No I didn't ride it last year, I was offered screwed tires just last night to go to it this year but I simply won't be there to race. Next year however I'm in....

The screw tires mentioned on the site seem to be the way to go, but there is a rubber class as well where a certain amount of studs are allowed. The screw tires just keep getting better every year as participants figure out new ways of creating the most evil lookin set of tires EVER. lol Hmmmm fixing a skate blade on the front somehow, I wonder.......

hey all,

Philly is hosting another Rocky Balboa race. This year will be the fourth one. Rocky Balboa race started back in 1999 by Dan Murphy. The premise of this race is to have two people on a team. One team mate will be the Sprinter. The Sprinter will have to run up the art museums stairs (just like rocky) and get the packages for each checkpoint. The sprinter then runs back down the steps to their bike. Then sprints to Love Park.

Where their teammate (i.e. Runner) will be waiting. They do a hand off. The runner will go do the task that is in the envelope. The sprinter will go back to the steps and do the same thing. Last year we had about 8 checkpoints spread out of Philadelphia. The ranged from the top of the Ben Franklin Bridge to Rocky Statue at the Stadiums to making a shot at the bike polo court at Taney Park.

Their were only 25 teams last year. I am hoping to have more. Here is the info on where it will be and the sponsors (so far)

June 24, 2006
2pm at the steps at the Art Museum (22nd and the Ben Franklin Parkway "roughly").
$20 for teams. (which will include after party BBQ at the Finish Line)
all proceeds will go to PBMA to help with the North American Cycle Courier Championships (naccc.phillybma.org)

sponsors as of 2/7/06
Swobo (www.swobo.com)
Reload Bags (www.reloadbags.com) *who gave out matching winner bags last year. I am not sure if they will this year.
Paul Comp (www.paulcomp.com)
Fabric Horse (www.fabrichorse.com)
4916 Clothing (www.4916.com)
Chrome Bags (www.chromebags.com)

any questions hit me up at dailey@phillybma.org


not the real flyer but you get the drift.
