Don't want to be snarky here, but where's the racing? I'm going to be out of town, but have always thought that a sprint down Boylston from Mass Ave to the Garden would be good fun. Could even have people from the event play traffic guards and block the thru streets.

And to paraphrase the flyer, the race is on 2/24, 3pm registration, 3:30pm start. Meet at the Statue of Leif Erikson at Charlesgate, where Newbury and Comm Ave meet. $10 entry, but that gets you a free raffle ticket to the post-race raffle and Quicksilver screening. And it's all for a great cause. So do it! Team Gigantic has spoken!

Did I mention cash prizes? And a free raffle ticket, with a chance to win a sweet handbuilt wheelset? I think I did. And what the hell, if you win the race I'll buy you a beverage (alcoholic or non) at the afterparty. So put me down on the sponsor list too.

just out of curiosity. mostly because last years MT was about 15miles, so i was thinking this years would be 15-20, and then they pull out 25miles and i was slightly dead.
its not as if whatever mileage is said will deter me from racing, i'm still going to make it regardless.
