Ready for a Kick in the Junk???

It's time for TransIowa v.5 registration... Well, almost. Guitar Ted has announced the details of registration for the 2009 event, which is limited to the first 75 entrants, and prior competitors have the first shot at entry slots, so if you want to get in, you've gotta' be on the stick.

TransIowa is the grandaddy of Midwest gravel grinders. The one time I tried it, last year, I failed to make it past the first checkpoint. It's a massive test of endurance, fitness, preparation and persistence. It's not to be taken lightly and if I know one thing about TransIowa, it's that luck is as much a factor in my ability to finish the race as anything I can do to prepare for the race -- it's just that heinous of a race. That's why I must have another shot at it in 2009.

How about you? Are you ready for the challenge of TransIowa? If so, click here and I'll see you there.

With some luck, I'll be at the starting line on my bike this year, instead of on the sidelines. If I don't get in, I'll be on the list to help man a check point. Too much fun to miss.

Right on Steve... I bet you'll get in. Just get your card in on time and you'll be good to go.

I'm lookin' forward to riding with you, my friend.
