2012 Race to Any Place

2012 Race to Any Place Team Registration

It's only the end of October but it's time to start thinking about this years Race to Any Place! This event is the largest stationary bike race in Western Pennsylvania, and an important team fund-raising event benefiting the Western Pennsylvania and West Virginia Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

"Space Monkey Mafia" vs. "Space Monkey Mafia ELITE"
We always have a great time competing & riding for fun. Last year we divided into two teams, the Space Monkey Mafia and the Space Monkey Mafia JV. The plan was to have a competition team and a "fun" team. Well, the "fun" team ended up doing very well. That being said, this year I've decided to have everyone step up their game. I've dropped the JV, "fun" team. Don't get me wrong, anyone can still sign up regardless of your fitness level, but I will be expecting to see you sweat and place very well in the overall standings!

This year I've also created an "elite" team which I expect to WIN THE WHOLE DAMN RACE!

Our goal last year was to place first in the YMCA division. Well, there was a miss-communication somewhere and we showed up race morning to find we were not in the YMCA division! After the race organizers were made aware of this mistake we were supposedly moved back into the proper division. Throughout the race our progress was indeed reported with the YMCA teams, however after the race (and after we believed we took first place in the YMCA division), they gave it to another YMCA team and lumped us in with the health club division where we placed 2nd.

This year, to eliminate all confusion, the plan is to build a team that will take first place over all divisions!

Sign up today by CLICKING HERE. Let me know if you are interested in the standard team or the elite team. I'll make the ultimate call on where you end up! If you don't feel you're ready for a race like this yet, don't worry. We have plenty of time and I'll be organizing training rides and more, from now until the end of February.
