So for all of the newbs that want in this year here is what we need on your postcard.

Name
Age
Class
Email

No more that one name per card. Send it to:

Ragnarok 105 c/o Isaac Giesen
134 Kingswood Dr
Apt 210
Red Wing, MN 55066

Ok... here are the formalities. I think we are all in accordance with the rules, but here they are (only one of which will probably be brought up again... and again... and again...)

1. Sponsors, organizers and any hangers on are not responsible for your safety. Each rider is considered to be on their own little private excursion. If you wipe out on loose gravel it is not our fault. You are responsible for you.

2. Outside support is only allowed at our Zumbro Falls checkpoint. There will be convenience stores available in Zumbro Falls.

3. You will receive the first 1/2 of the tulip notes upon registering the morning of the event. The second 1/2 of the tulip notes will be given to you upon reaching the checkpoint. There will be a time cut-off for the checkpoint, and believe me, it will be very attainable by all who can keep moving forward. The time will be determined at a later date.

4. You must attempt to follow the course at all times. If you need to go off course for help or food or something you must re-enter the course where you left it. I doubt anyone will be super familiar with the roads that we're going over, but please... no shortcuts.

5. Use your head. Yield to traffic. Pay attention to the road surface (which will possibly vary from concrete like hard gravel roads to snow covered sloppy muddy mess) and ride accordingly.

6. At all times you are making progress on the course you must wear an approved helmet.

7. Obey all state, county, city, village, township, borough, etc. laws, along with the Rules of the Road.

8. We are not responsible if you get lost or stranded. Have a way of contacting the outside world should something go not to plan.

9. Must have a blinking red rear light and a front headlight (can be one tiny white LED... it's amazing how much that helps you be seen even in the daylight).

Just to remind newbs if we get your card prior to December 1st I will personally throw it in the garbage.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Just a quick note to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. A quick reminder to anyone that has never raced Ragnarok before. You will be able to sign up soon (Dec 1)! To those veterans who have yet to sign up get on it so you are secured a spot, I know there is quite the line up of newcomers that will be sending in postcard so get on it!

If you are a newcomer please find an old post that goes over all the rules to this race before you sign up. We will be posting all the rules again as soon as I wake up from my food coma that may come from dinner.

Take care!

Open for business!

For all that have started Ragnarok V.1 or V.2. You may now register!

We have decided for all that have started our wonderful race before, you get a head start. We are opening up registration until December 1st for you. After that game on for everyone else. We will be letting in 80 riders this year, and under no circumstance will we be letting in anymore. We let in a few straglers last year and we are sticking to our guns this year. Registration will end with the 80th registrant. Please make sure you sign up only if you are able to race. I know things come up last minute, but DO NOT sign up then not ride your bike enough to finish the race. Please DO NOT put more than one name on a postcard. Only the first name on the card will be taken. Send postcards to Ragnarok 105, 134 Kingswood Drive Apt 210 Red Wing, MN 55066.

The race will take place April 10th, 2010.

Ready set GO!
