Tri County Shakedown: Think team time trial on open roads of varying surfaces. Think glory. Think personal challenge.

Think bikes. Think beer. Stop thinking now. I got reports that the Scott Tucker Scott Spring Classic was big fun, so this could be the event for you!

Justin Starks at Chainwheel asked me to help spread the word on this June 9 event. Here's the lowdown from the Facebook page:
Think team time trial on open roads of varying surfaces. Think glory. Think personal challenge.
It's happening again! If you participated in the Scott Tucker Scott Spring Classic you understand. For those of you who have only heard the whispers of the epic tales...

On June 9th ten teams of five riders will navigate unsupported roads filled with potential - the potential for glory. Total mileage is roughly 85mi. with roughly nine miles of road bike rideable gravel. Each team will be handicap...
ped and team times count when the last team rider crosses the finish line. Entry is $50 plus two six packs of your favorite bottled beverage per team with 100% of entries going to the purse.

Race start location and start time will be announced at a later date
