2012 Race Announcement

Wow! I've really been slacking on getting this posted. This is the one stop shop for all the details with shouts on Facebook  and Twitter (@WestDirtyBen).

Race Date: June 16, 2012

Registration Dates: Registration begins February 1! We will keep registration open for as long as it takes to get 200 people signed up. How's that sound? We had around 140 riders show up last year out of the 200 who signed up, so if you want to race, send a postcard. If you don't want to race, don't send a postcard. Simple. In line with the other fine races of the AGRS, a postcard is required and the address to send them to will be posted at the end of the month. Postcards will need the following information:

Class (see below)
If under 18 at time of race, let us know.

Rider Limit: As stated above...up to 200 bikes. Word!

Start: Schimelpfenig Park in Chaska, MN at 8:00 am. There is a shelter, playground equipment, kitchen with refrigerator, limited parking, VFW across the street...in other words, it has what is essential for a great day. Directions will be posted at a later date.

Open Women
Open Men

Course: The route last year ended up being 107 miles; there is 7% tax applied to gravel centuries held in June. While the course will be similar to last year, there are a few changes and additions we are working into it. Maybe we'll drop some of that info as we lead up to the race but probly not.


  1. what is the address to send the card to sirs (& Madam if there is one)?
