A few quick details:
This is a self supported event - Yes, you are responsible for you! If you gotta pull the plug on the side of the gravel road, be sure you have someone available to pick you up!
The course will NOT be marked. A cue sheet will be distributed prior to the event.
All riders are required to have a cyclo computer that can track mileage - Yes, we will verify that you completed the entire distance at the end.
Riders will be required to purchase a Nebraska Powerball Lottery ticket at each "checkpoint" as proof of reaching the checkpoint.
The checkpoints will be small town gas station convenience stores. If you need fluids and sustenance, buy it there!
