Win a free race entry!

So you want to race the Ithaca GP but don't want to wait until registration opens up to secure your spot on the start line?  Or maybe you're just too cheap to pay the race entry fee...  That's ok.  Either way, you're in luck.
How it works:
It's quite easy, actually.  The UCI Cyclocross World Championships are on Sunday, January 29 (incidentally the same day as the MMBA meeting in Lansing).  The Elite women and Elite men both race that day.  If you're lucky you will probably be able to find the race streamed live on cyclingfans.com.

SO, in order to win a free race entry to the fourth Ithaca Grand Prix of Cyclocross, you need to post your top FIVE places for both the Elite women AND the Elite Men's categories for the UCI Cyclocross World Championship race.

Write your choices in the "comments" section of this posting.  You will need to be a registered user and be willing to have your name announced as the winner.  Make sure to post your pics by MIDNIGHT on FRIDAY NIGHT, January 27.  Any pics received after midnight on Friday night will not count.

Fine print:
This will be good only for the 2012 race and is not transferable to anyone other than you, so if you can't make it tough luck.  I get to pick who is the winner based on the best choices overall, so don't complain.  Also it is good for only one race on the day, so if you want to be awesome and race in the B-Men, Masters 35+, and SS race, plan on paying the extra (small) fee for the 2nd and 3rd races.

Any questions?  Shoot me an e-mail racepromoter ATATATATATAT gmail.com

GOOD LUCK!

After today it looks like I won't be winning anything. Can I change my mind?

Go ahead - anything for the Surly Man.

Did you see Hoogerheide? Uggggh. I'll get some of the Bastards voting on this this week, I'm dedicating the posts all week long to historic Koksijde races. If I win this I'm going to give my entry to a person who had no intention of going to Ithaca - like somebody riding a fat bike or a Townie or that has never done a cross race outside of West Michigan. Is it cross season yet?

jbhancock said...

Unfortunately despite the fall-ish weather it isn't quite 'cross season. But I understand those Barry Roubaix peeps will be up and running on dirt roads soon.

Man, not much participation for a free race entry at this point! Appreciate you giving the entry away but watch out for those fixies... Dismounts would be rough.
