So I've changed a couple of things for 2010. The checkpoint that has been located in Spring Valley for the past two years has changed. The "halfway" point will now be at the concrete pavilion in the valley with the "S" turn. Those of you that have ridden the Almanzo course before may remember the sheer limestone wall that sits directly behind this shelter, those that haven't...you'll see it soon enough.
The second change is the elimination of the single speed and fixed gear categories. I have given this a great deal of thought for the last couple of years and I have decided to break the race into two categories, one for the gentlemen and one for the ladies. What you ride is your choice, how you ride it is your business...besides, it's all in the engine anyway. (The only exception to these changes would be with the entry of a tandem in which case the bicycle, and it's riders, will be entered into their own category)
