“Race Day XIII is Friday, August 7, 2009, aka Friday, 8, 7, 9.”

“On the holy day of 879, after the consecrated, work-less time of 5pm, bringest thy 20 ducats to thee start place of Comet Tavern at 922 E. Pike. Your hard-earned coin earns a blessed t-shirt, water bottle, water of the gods, and merry celebration.

This year’s celebration will feature 22 bands, Cyclecide’s Pedal Powered Amusement Park Rides and Side Show Rodeo, Foot Down, Tall Bike Jousting, Bunny Hop, Helltrack BMX, the Bicycle Belles and much more. You shall pay for your place at the celebration at the start or end of the race, so I (that’s right - God) may smile upon you. Those who refuse to exchange ducats for the privelege of attending shall endure my fervor and bloody smiting.”

excellent! Mark will represent in that race.
