I stumbled onto this 24 hour race a few days ago and then today I saw something about it on the OMBA website. I think it looks like a really cool event so I figured I put a little plug for the event on here.
The race is called LIFE$TYLE$ OF THE RICH & FAMOU$ and this year marks the 10th anniversary of the event. The 2009 event will be held on May 16th and 17th and the race is run from the Mansfield Outdoor Center. I've never ridden there but I've heard (and read) good things about their trails so that's a good basis for it being a good event.
The next thing that I thought sounded great about this event is that instead of staying in tents they provide cabins for the participants! I like camping and all but it would be nice to not have to haul that type of gear to an event and only have to worry about the bike gear. And that's not to mention having a hot shower whenever you want! The next thing I thought about is food. Well as it turns out they've got you covered there too! Meals are provided.
Cost wise the event doesn't cost much more that the other events that I have participated in. A 5 person team is $900 which I think is pretty reasonable considering what they are offering. They usually sell out pretty quick but as it turns out there are still 3 team spots available for this year's race. Here's a link with more info if you want it.
As the title of this post suggests (two cool) I have something else to show you... here is a pic of the coolest ever Birthday Cake. Notice the number of candles, 10... that's right I'm only 10!!! Phew, good thing too because Tanya had me thinking I was getting old.
