Straight from the CIRREM crew:
The big news from CIRREM HQ this year: CIRREM will be capped at 125 racers.
Yes, we know the race continues to grow in popularity so why limit the good fun? And we're sorry that we can't let all-comers experience the day that is starting to feel like a holiday. As in, "Happy CIRREM Day." Like Christmas, only without the bills and calorie-riddled guilt because you've ridden 62 miles.
Here's the deal: This may come as news to you, but CIRREM is supposed to be dirty & small. CIRREM is lowbrow & unpolished. As such, and because the CIRREM launch pad (the Cumming Tap) can only host a finite number of our fellow cyclists, we're throwing a limit on the number of riders. Besides, we want to ensure the experience is what you've come to expect from us, and nothing less. We promise more of the same uncompromising good times with your 2012 CIRREM experience: Food, beverage, kick-in-the-junk terrain, prizes, CIRREM schwag, the fellowship of cool people, a battle royale/wrestling match finish, and probably cookies. That's right, I said cookies.
In the past you've gotten super soft & cozy tshirts, fleece beanies & pint glasses from us for your registration dollars. This year: CIRREM Socks! Warm, high cuff, and as cool as the day is long. (fair warning to triathletes: these are not calf length compression socks). Rest assured, in true CIRREM fashion these are not your average socks.
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's socks. Unless they're CIRREM socks, then it's completely understandable.
