Andrea Venteicher's Beastly Century

Andrea Venteicher and her husband Lee are both chasing the cup this year. Here's what she had to say about one of her February rides.

Hey! I'm getting the sneaking suspicion that my husband is trying to outdo me.  But I am not to be outdone! I rode a Full on a chilly, sunless Feb 5th down through Postville, Elgin, Clermont, and Ossian. Highlights included nonstop hills, Great Owls Club road, and a hillbilly totem pole on Beechnut road with a collection of Pabst cans filled with tobacco spit scattered around it (see attached--the carcasses are mainly deer, with one poor snapping turtle that apparently ambled into buckshot range). Why just mount antlers when you can mount the whole rotting head (or turtle)? Congrats to all who did the Arrowhead--you guys are beasts!

You see some interesting, uh, culture out on gravel roads in Iowa.


  1. This is too cool. I'm not sure which Venteicher I want to root for...leaning towards Andrea now!

  2. I should offer a prize to the Venteicher with the most Cup rides. Something that can't be shared...
