That has gotta suck...


Fivesix: if you still need help, I can help set up, and pregames before I must to pedal my way down to tyrone square to catch the limo. If this wasn't going to be my last year, I would have been more than glad to do more.

I can do anything just as long as I am at her house before eight. Since my bmx is the only thing I have until I get the money for a new fixed, it may take a bit longer to get out there.

Just tell me when, where, and what and I'll be there.

The race is looking to be about 15 miles. I wanted longer but it took me too long to pick the route out as it was. It's choose your own adventure(I'll explain before the race), I've never heard of this or tried it so it will either be fun or the worst race ever.

The prizes are going to be mostly based on points. The manifests will have the points on them, SO DON'T LOOSE THEM. I need about 2 or 3 more people for check points.

If anyone has bike DVDs that I can borrow? Coolers for water a checkpoints, Corey Polo mallets? Anyone interested in hosting an after party(i'll get a keg and some food)?

We could probably do this in my back yard. As long as there aren't more than 50 people, it should be cool. I'll talk to my landlord tonight. I'm up around 29th st and 4th ave N. It was a checkpoint for Fixed Fight.

I was going to have everyone lock their bike before the race but I changed my mind. So you don't need to bring anything. Well Red Bull will be hanging out with free red bull for the 2 hours before the race so if you like to mix anything with your red bull...

1, Surly hooked it up(hubs, flasks)
2, volunteers should show up as if they were racists. (still needed)
3, What would be preferred house party or bar ride?

Todd: would you mind driving people to check points if needed?
Dijos: I don't mind getting a cake. What kind of cake do you like?

And Everyone knows there is a Pake Frame set up for grabs right? Most total points wins it, you choose the size.
Points are on the manifests, the manifests will be ordered so the first 10(maybe more maybe less)people to a point get points starting with 10 and then descending points from there. In addition every 5th or 6th manifest will be worth a yet to be determined amount of points.

Winners are not eligible for multiply race prizes(you can win all the games you want)
First overall: Pake Frame Set
first local: not sure yet
Second local: same
third local: same
First Out of town:
Second out of town:
Third out of town:
First girl local
first girl out of town:

Depending on what else I get I mite stretch it out to 4th and/or 5th prizes local and out of town.
(Note: Michael from 66fixed is eligible for any and all prizes. Along with anything other sponsors, as long as they are riding fixed or single speed. Which goes for everyone.)

I should be able to drive people to checkpoints if needed. I may have to pull over and take a 30 minute nap from time to time though. LOL. I'll be at the race around 4 or 5 on Saturday, but I'm not a racist... I don't see color, only love or no love.

OOh, flasks. I like all cakes; I'll totally kick money to you for it. I say house party. I tried to get my loving wife to Ok my house, but that did not work out.

This will either be the funnest thing ever, or like statistics class on 2 wheels.

The St. Pete Bikefest is this Saturday as well. Should be lots of motorcycles everywhere and possible road closures near the Pier.
