Detour Road Contruction! The main bridge in Rockdale is being replaced. So don’t try to come in on Hwy 73 without expecting a detour. Easiest route from all points is to come into Rockdale from Cambridge on Cty B/Spring St. Ignore all road closed signs from this point (road isn't closed until the Rockdale bridge).

Here is a picture of the pit area between Heather’s and the Koshkonong Creek. Heather’s will keep the grill on for anyone that wants food until 1 a.m. She’s also offered to have an all you can eat breakfast available at 6 a.m. (Eggs, Bacon, Sausage, Hashbrowns, Danish, Biscuits’n’Gravy, Fresh Fruit, Coffee, and Juice). She’s got a really nice deck overlooking the race for the 3 and 6 hour guys to enjoy a cold one after you’re done. Horseshoe pits will be lit up as well.

Need Camping? As I’ve mentioned before, the park at Area#3 is ok to tent on, but it is quite a hike from the Start/Finish. Chuck Hutchins (former mayor of Rockdale and the Cam-Rock Trail Boss) has offered his spacious yard to anyone that may have family along or would like to camp overnight. He’s got a nice fire pit too. Chuck’s house is only 1 block away from the event and is easy access. Just ask at registration.

We’d like to thank Sigma again for their on-line rental program. They’ve given us a nice selection of commuter lights to raffle off also. Hammer has long been a WEM series sponsor and also has provided us some product to raffle off. Lastly Bikes and Beer with Ana & Devon, a group of really good friends from Madison that put on a weekly ride have also donated a nice selection of 6-paks we will raffle off. Cheer Devon on as he hammers out his second 12 hour solo of the year.

Parking- Parking will be available on the main drag of Rockdale, side streets, and Area #3. Please leave Heather's main parking lot open to patrons.

Day of registration and packet pick up will open at 5p.m. On-line registration will close on 9/2 at Midnight.
