Someone asked about checkpoints so I thought I would make sure everyone knew what to expect.
When you sign in on Friday night at Wheelhouse cycles or on Saturday morning at the start, you will get a race number that needs to go on the front of your bike, a sheet with some basic race information and the notes for the first leg of the race. At the end of that leg, in Zumbro Falls, you will see one of our cars parked with a Ragnarok sign by it. This is the checkpoint. You will tell us your number and we will record your number and the time you arrived. Once we have your checked in, we will give you the cue notes for leg 2 and you are ready to go. Feel free to hang around the checkpoint as long as you want. If you are in a hurry, you can leave as soon as you have your notes. If you are in a pack of riders, do us a favor and agree as a group to wait until you all have your notes before heading out. We can only record your times and hand out notes so fast. At the Lake City checkpoint, you will receive the notes for leg 3. If you arrive after the cutoff, you will not receive the notes for the next leg and your race will be done. You will need to average around 9mph to make the cut-offs.
I wanted to remind everyone that we do not support riders and we don't provide drop service. If you need additional supplies, you can carry it with you, make use of the convenience stores in Z-Falls and Lake City, coordinate with someone to bring things with you, or talk someone into providing support for you for the day.
