Welcome Race Fans!
Welcome to the 4th annual Chequamegon 100!
We are just 4 weeks away from the race.
We have 268 racers signed up for the event. 153 riders for the Chequamegon 100. 115 riders for the Chequamegon Metric 100.
We continue to utter the word ‘wow’ each time we discuss or think about what this list of riders has contributed to CAMBA and IMBA to support the trails. Just as when we started the event 4 years ago we continue to be amazed at your support for the event and now to the trails. We could not be more pleased for the partnership with CAMBA and IMBA for this years event. We believe that this is the beginning of a very good thing.
Please welcome our title sponsors for the event:
· Milltown Cycles of Fairbault, MN
· Salsa Cycles, based in Bloomington, MN.
This year we also have several supporting sponsors coming on:
· Angry Catfish Bicycles and Coffee of Minneapolis, MN
Finally, we can’t thank enough the partners who have provided us with prizes, opened their doors to host us, and built trails for us to ride
· Twin Six Clothing of Minneapolis, MN
· DZ Nuts embrocations
· Wolf Tooth Components
· Lakewoods Resort
· River’s Eatery
· Chequamegon Area Mountain Bike Association

Lodging: Lakewoods Resort
Just like previous years Lakewoods Resort is the host resort for the pre-race meeting and dinner.
Lakewoods is offering a 20% discount on lodging if you book for 2 or more nights, lodging is limited this year. Rooms are still available in the Golf Villas and Condos.
Remember the Chequamegon 100 happens on June 21st and 22nd, 2013.
Pre-Race Meeting and Registration:
Friday, June 21, 6-8pm at Lakewoods Resort there will be a mandatory pre-race meeting and registration.
Registration is from 6-8pm with a brief riders meeting starting at 7:30pm.
This year Lakewoods will be offering a Combo Meal Ticket. This will cover one persons meals for dinner and breakfast at a cost of 20.00. We will be selling meal tickets at the registration table Friday night. Tickets are cash only. There is an ATM in the Lakewoods lobby, but please plan ahead. Individual prices on tickets are posted below.
Friday Night Pasta Feed: Friday, June 21, 6-8pm, Lakewoods Resort
We encourage all riders, families, and support crews to eat dinner at Lakewoods Friday night. Perhaps we are naive believing that families and support crews would want to spend the weekend in the Northwoods, perhaps we are optomistic. Either way, we want this to be an event that people make a weekend out of and enjoy some time spent in the Chequamegon National Forest
Pasta Feed..$12.50, per person, gratuity is included in the cost (Kids under 5 eat free, 5-10 are 1/2 price)
Includes two pastas; Alfredo, marinara & meat sauces
Assorted French breads
Ice cream bar with sundae toppings
Cash bar will also be available
Saturday Breakfast: Saturday, June 22, 5:30-8am (open late for families and support crews), Lakewoods Resort
We encourage everyone to pay for breakfast Friday night, this will help us estimate how much food to prepare. We will also be sending out an RSVP form as mentioned above that will help Lakewoods staff prepare for dinner and breakfast.
Everyone who pre-pays for breakfast Friday night will receive a ticket you will need to hand in Saturday morning.
Breakfast Buffet …$10.00, per person, gratuity is included in the cost (Kids under 5 eat free, 5-10 are 1/2 price)
The 100 Mile race start will be at 7:00am. Riders are to rally in the parking lot at Lakewoods from 6:30-6:45. We will then cross the road and have a pre-race meeting before the start on Rock Lake Road.
The Metric 100 race start will be at 8:00am. Riders are to rally in the parking lot at Lakewoods from 7:30-7:45. We will then cross the road and have a pre-race meeting before the start on Rock Lake Road
Fish Hatchery Checkpoint (for 100 mile riders):
Fish Hatchery will be roughly the half point of the 100 miler and the Metric 100. Riders will be able to have one drop bag that we will transport to/from the checkpoint and finish. Drop bags will be provided at the pre-race meeting on Friday night to all 100 mile riders. We will not be accepting personal bags this year, only the bag that we provide. This is a change from last year.
We encourage riders to have their support crews at the checkpoint, make a day of it, make a picnic, let’s turn the park into a festival!
Fish Hatchery Checkpoint is the only place on course that we would like support crews to meet their riders. This is primarily for the experience and safety of the riders.
Janet Road Checkpoint
Janet Road will be roughly the half point for Metric 100 riders. We will not have drop bags available at this checkpoint, but there will be water and snacks for those in need. This checkpoint is intended to be a last resort aid station. Do Not plan on needing as you strategize for the event.
This year the race finish will happen in downtown Cable, WI. The finish line will be in front of River’s Eatery where riders and families will be able to relax and fuel up after a day on the bike. We will have a changing tent and bike washes available. Please keep muddy bike shoes and clothing out of the River’s Eatery.
Post-Race Party and Awards Ceremony
With a handful of sponsors comes a handful of prizes! This year we will have some prizes and giveaways for riders in the evening. Expect the awards ceremony to happen at 7:00 June 23rd, 2012, the day of the race.
That’s all for now folks. Thank you for your patience.
