Single Speedo Rule is Back at the Final Trophy Cup Race Tomorrow Night

The weather looks warm and pleasant for the final Trophy Cup race of the series.Updated series standings can be found here: http://obra.org/events/23714/results

Remember that all six weeks will count towards the overall standings so this week is still important! The winner of the beginner categories will win a great new jersey from Rapha and that the rest of the category winners will receive a pair of the new Rapha cyclocross shoe. Details about the shoe can be found here: http://www.rapha.cc/us/en_US/shop/cross-shoe/product/XSH01

Does anybody remember the single speedo rule? I do and it's back for tomorrow night. Anybody racing in the single speed category that lines up and races in a speedo gets double points for the night. It might be one of my favorite traditions that's fallen by the wayside. Show everybody that you still know how to have a good time.

Pre-registration will close at midnight tonight. With the $15 registration and the processing fee you save a couple bucks and don't have to wait in line on the night of the race. Register here: http://obra.org/events/22584/register

We've got a different course again this week, one that features everything from last week but only some of it in the same order with a bit more of what folks liked about it. Also keeping it interesting will be another start line location with a new hole shot line for the A fields. Still the same $50!

We have only a handful of t-shirts left so if you're still interested, they're $15 at registration.

People's Pig will be feeding everybody again tomorrow night and don't forget, if you ask real nice they can make you something vegetarian or vegan. Gigantic will also be pouring $4 pints for those of you who are thirsty after your race.

Looking forward to seeing you all out there again tomorrow!
