Endurance riders, mark your calendars and register for the Skyway Epic in Sylacauga, Alabama.
This race will contain 60 miles of Single track, Forest Service Roads, Double track, Camping, Food, Music, Dancing. (the food, music and dancing will be after the ride…unless you get a wild hair and start cutting a rug on the double track. But be careful, it’s a little technical to be doing the Hammer).
I’ve pre ridden the Skyway and it’s a beast. There are no flats, just ups and downs and when I say ups, I mean a whole lot of climbing. There’s a bit of some technical mess to get over and some insanely fun downhills. The great reward to the race is the single track in Lake Howard. It’s probably the sweetest single track I’ve ever ridden. So many fast twists and turns with very little technical mess involved – it’s like gliding across butter!
On the fence about registering? Well you get a snazzy t-shirt designed by me if you register before April 20th
Still on the fence but more enticed now? Okay, well if you register for the race before cut off which is Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 9:00 PM ET I will give away my very popular “Get a Bike” tee to one lucky person (see details below*)
