RACE! NYACK to THE TRACK: SUNDAY OCT.8 - BE THERE!




On October 8th we present to you a challenge:
A flat-out open road, city street and track race that runs from Nyack to Kissena.

HERE'S THE DEAL:

Racers must register in 2-man teams. This is a team race. At least one team member MUST be on a track bike.

On the morning of race day there will be a relaxed group ride from the city up to Nyack and the start line. That afternoon, the race begins. Teams will wind their way back home to NYC and through the beloved city streets that lead to Kissena Velodrome, where they will then compete in a Time Trial for points and victory.

Are you up to the challenge?

* * * * *

HERE'S THE FUN FACTS:

This race is not as hard as one might think. This race is about pacing yourself and riding smart - not just fast. Remember what happened to the Hare? That's right - they took him out back and shot him for what he done.

Strategy is a deciding factor in this race as always. Think man, think!

Prizes and sponsors to be announced.
Check this thread for updates.

Registration is $20 per team.

please contact dirty cookie or myself with any questions. I forgot what edan's name is on these forums.
you may also email nyack2track@gmail.com for a prompt response.

Thanks! Hope to see you there!

it is true that we are working on getting some grub out to those who dare take on this challenge.

however! burgers are S_9's department, and he is racing...


so! anyone have the gear and the guts to step up to the grill plate??

i might be down for some mobile grillin' action, but only if we use charcoal and wood.

That's silly. Hard bike rides (like the long running Nyack Ride) FINISH @ the Runcible Spoon. They don't start there.

Pass.

no. no. no. the warmup ride finishes there. then the hard bike ride starts there and ends at the cusp of long island. the long running nyack ride is mistaken and has been living a lie--a parallel life to the long running, underground, masochistic n'yack to da track.

Looks cool. No track bike, tho. Any chance that someone w/ one is looking for a partner?

I've never rode to Nyack before but judging from the map it looks like it's about 30 miles from downtown manhattan. Is this right?

I did a century recently and 25 miles with about 1000' elevation change last month in SF. I've never bonked but I've come close. Then again, I haven't done many long hills on the fixed wheel. Whatever. I think it'll work out though I don't expect to place. So, who wants to be my partner!?
