Why?

Registration for Trans-Iowa V.2 will begin on Saturday, Dec. 17th at 11 AM Pacific Time on ACTIVE.COM

This should be enough of a heads up for all to get an equal and fair shot.

First 70 are in. Good Luck.
:confused: Why would anyone ever want to ride for that long on gravel roads in IOWA? :eek:

Just wondering. :D ;)

The same reason people ride across Death Valley. :eek:
The same reason people run across the Sahara Desert. :eek:
The same reason people do Iditabike. :eek:
The same reason people do the GDR. :eek:

They do it to see something....to push the limits....to say they did it....and to get away from the same ole going around in circles type races. It's just different.

Ack...more registrations before Christmas...you are killing me, but I'm still there.

Just got my Kona Unit 2-9 in this weekend and should have her built by next.....now I've got some gearing research to do.

Paddy H ran his 1FG with a 44X16 last year, completing the event in just over 24hrs. Let's see now, for your 29"er just reduce that by 10%, have your knees blessed, and you're good to go! ;) :p :D

I thought a 38x16 with 26" wheels was a good choice for the conditions this year. I would have preferred 175mm cranks vs. my 180s but it wasn't a huge issue.
