Ragnarok 105 2022 Rider List

Below is the rider list for the 2022 version of Ragnarok 105.  Below the rider list is the waitlist.  This will be order we will be contacting people on the waitlist as riders drop out.  If you're on the waitlist, stay in shape to ride.  In years past we have easily went through the whole wait list.  We may notify riders on the waitlist that they have a spot up to two days before the event to see if they would like to ride.   

The ride/race will be held April 2nd, 2022.  Be prepared for anything!  I don't know what pandemic regulations or the weather will bring.  Pay attention to emails and your email's junk box.  If you do not receive and email from us we either couldn't read your handwriting or something is incorrect.  It is important you contact us at rideragnarok105@gmail.com so we can communicate the latest information regarding Ragnarok. 

YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOURSELF!!!

Be prepared to complete the course all on your own.  There are convenience stores and other amenities along the course that will be sufficient for nutrition and hydration.  

We have not set the course yet, do not ask us for a course file... we do not provide one.  Do no use previous years files, you will go off course.  I know routes are posted on every platform out there, they will be incorrect. We will provide you with tulip notes (we will send an email explaining how to use them) that get you around the course.   

This is a free race, but we do spend money.  If you need to drop out let us know immediately.  If you do not contact us or no show on race day, we will not except your postcard ever again.  That seems harsh but there are plenty of riders that want your spot.  

DO NOT POACH OUR COURSE RACE DAY!  This is mostly for the safety of the riders participating.  If you know of someone planning to do so, please suggest they don't.  Give them your course notes or file after the ride so they can ride the route a different weekend.   

We will be emailing other information about the race.  In the mean time if you have a question that is dire, email us at the email above.  

We look forward to seeing you!

Rok Registration 2022!

 Hello All -


So we're back on for 2022! Pretty much the same details as always...

What: Ragnarok 105
When: April 2, 2022 (hoping for no blizzards this weekend!)

Where: Red Wing, MN

HOW:

We're going to be doing registration pretty much the same as we always have. We will be capping the registration at 150 riders as we have the last couple of years, and will be utilizing a lottery, again as we have in the past. If less than 150 folks send in their postcard, and you properly get a postcard into our hands, then you'll be in.

Where do you send the postcard? This year we're going to have you send the cards to Jake. If you are local to Denver, CO maybe you can drop them off... otherwise here is his address:

Ragnarok 105 
c/o Jake Huot
2808 N Humboldt St
Denver, CO 80205

Some "rules" for the cards:

1) Try to send an actual postcard. They aren't that hard to find, and they are much easier for us to manage.
2) One postcard per person. If you start to send in multiple cards they will all be thrown out.
3) Don't send in a card for anyone but yourself. A key point of this event is that, as a rider, you are responsible for yourself. This begins with the postcard. (Note... obviously we won't be able to tell if your significant other or kid sent in a card for you, but if we get 6 cards for you and your friends in the same pen, same handwriting, all at the same time... that isn't cool... again a postcard isn't that hard).
4)Make sure your handwriting is legible.

The card needs three things:

(1) Name
(2) email address
(3) The statement: "I am responsible for myself"

Postcards will be received starting Black Friday (November 26, 2021) and must be postmarked by December 31, 2021.

To let the straggler cards in we'll probably do the lottery on or around January 15, 2022.

Any questions? Post them up here (or however you want to try and contact us... we have a facebook page... instagram... rideragnarok105@gmail.com etc...)

Thanks - Jake

Rok Results - 2021

 We'll see how the Excel formatting flies over to this archaic blogger medium...

UPDATED 4/16!!!




Thanks again for coming out and challenging yourselves with the Rok. Next year should be more of the same. We'll try and have a date picked out shortly and maybe a few wrinkles thrown in for good measure.

Thanks - Isaac

It is race week!

 Hi All -

Jake hit send on an important email last weekend... I'm bad at the internet, but will try to get the info all here for people to digest... 


"Rok Riders,


This year once again will look different.  Attached is a COVID health sheet that you will have to  print and fill out, a waiver that will need to be printed and filled out, and your tulip notes to complete the course.  There will be plastic bins at the start to put the COVID and race waiver in before you start. 

We will be starting in waves five minutes apart.  You need to stay in or around your car with a mask on until your wave starts.  You will be allowed to approach the start line 2 minutes before your wave starts with your mask on!  Once you get out on course you will be able to remove your mask while riding.  If you enter a town or a store please put your mask on.  NONE OF THIS IS OPTIONAL!

Your start time is: (see PDF)

You truly are on your own this year.  There will not be checkpoints.  We may have timing... we will at least have a finish line.  If you care about timing, I suggest you keep it for yourself and email it to us, we can then post it for all the world to see.  

You are responsible for yourself.  You need to have a back up plan if things go wrong.  There are parts of the course you will not have cell service."


I will try and clarify some finer points of things throughout the week.

files if you lost the email...

2020 Ragnarok

To all Ragnarok riders on the roster this year, an email has been sent out about the cancellation of this years race. Some of your addresses were rejected, so slide into my DM on social media if you need the email sent to a different address or email us.
We have added an option to do your own 105mi ride April 18th (all surfaces excepted). Record your route and send it to us. Rideragnarok10@gmail.com  Do not ride with others and ride directly from your home...or start your ride down the street so others don’t have your address.
If you don’t have a tracking device, email me and we will get you one. If you don’t have a gps or a device that you can download the route, take a pic of the screen. If you want to ride it on a trainer that’s cool too.
Everyone is welcome to join in on the fun, but only riders on this years roster will be eligible for one of three prize packages.
This is anything but your traditional Ragnarok 105. We wanted to have a gathering point for our gravel community to come together even if it’s in a non traditional way.
Thanks for all the support along our journey!

The 2020 'Rok has been indefinitely postponed

I doubt I need to go into any great detail here, but given national and international guidelines for groups/gatherings at the current time (and just looking as a human at the state of the world) it is looking highly likely that we will not be able to responsibly hold our event as planned in April.

This most likely means that we'll just have to do a reset and do everything again in 2021. If I find a nice big gap in my schedule that also jives with a gap in the "cycling calendar" I could maybe see trying to get in a Rok ride this year, but with a couple of young kids and crazy busy work (likely to get crazy busier) I wouldn't count on it.

What are the odds of a blizzard on or just before the 18th of April now? Oh well.

Be safe everyone and do what you can to prevent the spread of this virus (or any virus really). Thank you.
