    Default Middle GA Epic v3.0

    Well, we're about 6 months out, and detailed planning has commenced. You should go ahead and make plans to be there, it's gonna be a great time!

    Details (may be some minor tweaks, but the info here is pretty 98% accurate I'd say) can be found on the website at Middle Georgia Epic – Georgia's Longest Multi-Surface Race!

    The gist of it is:
    200k or 100k
    50% paved
    Mostly self supported
    No course markings
    Dang good post-race food
    Tons of southern hospitality
    Peanut butter clay and/or 6" deep sugar sand are possible but not guaranteed.

    Registration will open in October sometime.

    If you or someone you know is interested in sponsoring the race, let me know!!

    Go HERE to read some re-cap info from v2.0.

    Some course photos to get you all excited.





















    And lastly, vSalon's own, Mr. TooTall coming into the finish on his Zank.

    Why do people feel the need to list all of their bikes in their signature?

    Dang I'm a goofball.

    Honestly if you are anywhere near this event DO IT! The route is killer, no seriously if you go off course you are lost in the middle of no-effin'-where so follow your GPS!

    I had a great time and the locals were incredibly fun to ride with.

    I'm THINKING about it D.G., it's a far piece for me but I'm thinking about it.

    Regardless, count NFS in as a sponsor ok?

    Do the 200k this year! Last year you spent a week riding in FL before the race, right?

    Dewd, I want to enjoy it ;) I finished 10th in the 100k right or something like that. Obviously I had a little too much fun. I'm old, Too Tall and I don't "race" no mo but appreciate the sentiment.

    I didn't say anything about actually racing, and besides, with the 200k there's literally twice as much to enjoy!

    You didn't add a 50+ 100K category despite weekly emails from hundreds of old s??? What the heck D.G. what the heck indeed ;)

    Folks you really need to do this. Super course that will produce yard sales which are hilarious because you'll get covered in red GA clay.

    I personally appreciate there are no course markings and only one support station where they look at you like "why are you looking at me?".

    Do this.

    It's part of the 40+ group, duh!

    It's definitely a ride for folks that have a pretty good idea of what they're doing, which makes my life as an organizer waaaaay easier. If you need a juicebox and a pat on the back every 10 miles, this ain't the event for you.

    BUT, I did add a 35k fun ride this year for folks that want/need a shorter adventure. Same format as the races tho - no course markings, only one aid stop.

    But but but I could own the 50+ and the Clydesdale category. Why do you hate old people?
