1000 Warriors slots!!!!!

I recently had lunch with Rick Bennett, who is the organizer of the 1000 warriors, I told him that we had a team and wanted to race the 1000 warriors, but didn't have the funds. He told me that he would welcome our team under his invitation (free of cost). He told me that "we could only do this if we race to win." I told him that we would have 4 or 5 racers working for our two best climbers and would do all we could to get them there.

If we think, we can competitively race, and compete to win the stage I can get us in. I just need to know by the end of next week.

Joel,
you can find the course description at tourofutah.com. It's the Queen stage of the "toughest stage race in America". It goes from Park City to Snowbird. It's not for the weak in heart. Alpine Loop, Suncrest & Snowbird in one day.

That's a sweet hook-up Mason! I'm not at that level but I'll come drive a chase car or hand out water or whatever needs to be done to support the group. I'd love to see us make a showing at this thing.

We need to set up a plan to make sure you guys are not cooked going into this thing.

It's all about preparation.

This will be awesome!
