This just in from Steve Parker:
The date has been set. The 2011 Syllamo's Revenge will be held on Saturday, May 14th. Registration will open on BikeReg.com on 1/12/2011 @ 12:01am CST. This year there will be only 300 spots available for the 50 mile Mountain Bike Challenge, and it will be done just as in years past.
This year's event will also preview a longer version, the Syllamo's Revenge 100, which will be part of the National Ultra Endurance Race Series. Check out the details of the series at http://www.usmtb100.com/. The Syllamo's Revenge 100 will be limited to the first 100 entrants for the inaugural event, with future plans to expand the field, and for it move to the fall in 2012. Details of the 100 are still being worked out, including course route, and exact mileage, but this year's event will be all single track, ( after the initial climb ), and challenge even the best riders. There will be strict cut off times for the 100, and with a limited number of spots, please make sure that you're 100% sure that this type of ultra endurance race is for you.
Website updates are being done, and I hope to have all details about both events posted before Christmas. I wanted to go ahead and get this out so everyone would know the date of the event, and when registration opened. I'll be sending out an another update as soon as the website is updated.
Check out the Syllamo's Revenge on Facebook and/or Twitter, to get latest information. The newsletter list has so many subscribers that I have to send email in waves of 500 over 3 days, and I want to make sure that everyone has access to all information as soon as possible.
More to come soon!-
Have a great day!
Syllamo's Revenge fill the avaikable rider spots quickly, so mark the January 12 registration date on your calendar. The Syllamo's Revenge 100 sounds like a painful opportunity being made available to those of you who can never seem to get enough.
