UPDATE: April 16, 2014 - The course has been updated and a new map is out. Checkout latest NIMBY blog post for details.
It's that time again, time to sign up and chat NIMBY Fifty! The flood gates are open: registration opened yesterday at 4:20pm and we pushed out a quick blog/newsletter to sum up some of the fun new things. Blog is right here.
Here are the highlights (full details in the blog):
Platinum Club - Train hard, ride fast. Those who finish the race under 2:45:00 (MEN) and 3:15:00 (WOMEN), will gain NIMBY Platinum Status, which means the following year you get to start in the Platinum corral, which is going to be cordoned off right behind the pro/elite riders. Plus you get plain old recognition, a special prize and bragging rights.
Boréale Biking Trip Giveaway - We got a call from some folks in the Yukon who wanted to award one of our racers and a friend with an awesome trip. So we jumped at the opportunity. Register before April 1 and you'll be entered into a draw to win this trip.
Done NIMBY Fifty every year since the beginning? - Done NIMBY since the beginning without missing a year? Then signup for this year's race and you'll get something super special. At the moment what you'll get is top secret, but here's a hint. We're working with Chromag on the memento.
Last but not least, we'd like to welcome aboard our Official Presenting Sponsor - Chromag Bikes.
