Welcome to 2011!

Good morning. We hope the new year came in with a bang and that your hangover is mild. As you may know by now, registration is open. By hand, horse or USPS you are all now welcome to submit your entry for the 2011 running of the Almanzo 100 and Royal 162. All we ask is that you follow the directions over here to get your name on the roster over there --> and we'll be all set.

As far as the events go, their descriptions have already been broken down so if you've got questions check them out here (or let us know and we'll be happy to help you out).

For the third year in row we will be selling an Almanzo jersey (and possibly bib shorts) to help raise money to pay for this whole thing. We're currently ironing out some fine details, but the design(s) will be up in the next couple of days and pre-sale will begin there-after. We also have plans to offer up some socks and tees for those not interested in the whole kit thing, but we'll see what happens there (stay tuned).

In the time between then and now be sure to check out this year's Almanzo 100 sponsors (they're in your neighborhood).

Banjo Brothers - @banjobrothers

Cars-r-Coffins - @crc_hurl
Hiawatha Cyclery
Kings Wine Bar - @kingswinebar
Peace Coffee - @peace_coffee
Rawland Cycles

Two more things, if you could pass this along to all your friends that would be great. We'd like to see this be the biggest, baddest Almanzo yet. Also, please be sure to check back here often for news and updates.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,

If someone signs up for the 100 can they switch to the Royal at later date?

I suppose they could do that.
