Some cool new items for the Bear Lake Classic May 15-17th

Registered Bear lake Classic Racers/Riders,

First of all, THANK YOU for your interest in the 2015 Bear Lake Classic coming next week in Garden City, Utah (May 15-17).  We are thrilled with the initial support and riders joining is for this 12th annual ride.  A couple new and fun items for 2015.

1) You are prepping the Tour of Utah 1st Stage course. As I'm sure you already know, you will be riding the exact same route as the professional cycling teams during the Tour of Utah Stage 1 on Aug 3rd.  The Tour will start in Logan, follow Logan Canyon to Bear Lake, complete on lap around the lake, and then return via the summit overlooking the lake.  Our hill climb on Friday night and the lap around the lake will be the same course, so...come ride where the pros will ride!

2) Friday Night, more to climb, but more to eat afterwards.  We've extended the ITT holl climb a gentle additional mile-plus to pre-create the Tour hill's exciting hill climb.  Afterwards, we have arranged for the awards ceremony and a special rider meal at Cafe Sabor, (special healthy menu items at a special price).  We hope you will all come join us on the patio and lawn for some great food and to cheer on our winners. 

3) New Men's and Women's Hill Climb Prize.  One man and one woman climber will take home a FREE ENTRY to the Rockwell Relay in June.  This is worth $200 each and it will be given RANDOMLY to one man and one woman just for entering our hill climb. 

4) We heard the feedback, you already have a t-shirt, keychain, cheap bag...  This year we have decided to give you what you really want after 50 and 100 miles of racing and riding...FOOD!  Instead of keychains and first-aid kits, chapsticks and pens we will give EVERY RIDER a free lunch catered by Justin Hamilton of Off-Premise Catering.  Burger or a Brat and great extras.  Pepsi is sponsoring again so there will plenty to drink as well.  

5) Making it easier for packet pick-up for folks down south.  On Thursday from 3:00 - 7:00pm, we will be at Bikewagon in North Salt Lake Address: 680 W 200 N, North Salt Lake, UT 84054.  If you live in the Weber/Davis/SLC/Utah Co area, stop by and we will get your packets to you.  If you have friends, Family or team mates who have not yet registered, go online at www.bikereg.com/bearlakeclassic or bring them along on Thursday.  

Once again THANKS for registering and we will see you start to come in on Friday May 15th!  - Troy Oldham & Kevin Rohwer (2015 race directors)
