First, I want to congratulate both Matt Maxwell and Charles Showalter for their impressive finishes at Trans-Iowa this past weekend. I'm sure they'll both have reports for us once they recuperate. I know of a few other people in the chase this year that made it at least partway on TI, which is a feat in and of itself, so expect a few more Cup ride reports outta that.
It's been too long since any sort of challenge (besides the challenge of earning a cup) has been done under the guise of getting people out on their bikes. So, here it is: whoever gets the most miles in Cup O' Dirt qualifying rides in May will receive a special prize. You can combine your metrics and fulls for the month towards the prize. More details about what the special award actually is will be published later in the month. For now, get out on your bike and ride in some dirt!
