Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

The R1 race

Does anyone know how I can find out where the stage ends in Providence? How about the start or the route of the time trial in Providence?

I know the dates. I just want to watch if possible. The web site does not have this. Probably for a good reason. I'm guessing it may not be released until almost the last minute ???

Thanks.

It looks like a lot of the details aren't finalized. I see you can't yet register, nor are any sponsors listed, etc.

Still, try emailing Craig Roth (owner of strangersracing.com and one of the organizers behind the race). craig@junkernaut.com

I noticed that. That's what makes me think it may not be released until the last minute. I just hope there is some kind of audience or cheering section for these guys somewhere.

Or it was the phoenix's lame attempt at 'street cred'.

Anyways, post what you find.
