This is the first really big weekend of racing with the Sisu Marathon up in Ironwood on Saturday. If you're looking for something on Sunday, I'd recommend the Fridjtof Nansen in Eau Claire (Tower Ridge is in great shape).
We've had some fun times at Sisu, although it was cancelled last year (click here to read about that). Here's the story from the 2012 edition.
Hopefully I'll be seeing a bunch of intrepid Cyclova types up in Ironwood having dinner tonight. I'm staying at the AmericInn and bringing the kids along. I'll be looking forward to hitting the sauna tomorrow after the race!
Next week is Balsam Branch and the Birkie Tour (I'll be posting more about that next week). Happy racing! I'll be looking forward to checking out your pictures! As always, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org or post them on Facebook!
Just a reminder to avoid the first price hike for the Pepsi Challenge – mail your registrations or do your on-line registration by Jan. 11th. Jan. 12the the new price will be $75.00 for the 48/24K races. 10K races stay the same no matter what.
