Wisconsin Triple Crown Jersey!

Here's the BEST PART!
Pactimo Custom Cycling Apparel will be the presenting sponsor for the series.
Complete all three stages and claim your prize:
The Coveted Wisconsin Triple Crown Jersey!
Gratis!


Beyond the fact that the jersey is free, what's even cooler is that this is a top shelf item, easily worth $85 based on its features! It will be specially produced only for those who finish the series and for no one else.

Riders will build their own series. Some will do 200K 200K 300K. Others will do 100K 150K 200K. Others will do 50K 100K 150K.
Most all riders will challenge themselves. All who complete a combination of distances for the three events will be awarded with a Wisconsin Triple Crown Jersey. We are still working through the details with Pactimo, but since they can handle extremely small production runs (their minimum full custom order is only 5 units), we are hoping that they will be able to custom print the actual distances completed per rider. Maybe they can even print the rider's last name across the back. How cool would that be?

RIDERS BEWARE. I am a cycling enthusiast and have ridden 2 of the 3 proposed events multiple times, the 3rd is new. If you are looking for slick marketing, over priced and under performing ride(s), The triple is for you. Obviously the promoter will promote and is extremely active on forums and social networks. The content to no surprise is at best self serving embellishments, but closer to misleading and falsehoods. The promoter has been unwilling and/or unable to provide a ride with valid time/distance metrics in 5 years, therefore, making the expensive time chips worthless. Everyone has a bike computer and can tell time. Promoter claims of riding up the famed Catfish Hill in Trempealeau County are true, but, from the back seat of the sag wagon. I saw him, unable to finish from Fountain City.
All a challenge rider really wants/needs is a simple, good clean route with a little water/food every 25 miles. Not BBQ's, hotdogs, socks, glasses, bottle openers,trinkets and expensive marketing that they have to pay for.

The DD is not new. I rode the first DD in 2006 and enjoyed it.


This triple is a nice carrot...a good motivator to get in good cycling shape earlier in the season.

I've done the Brute and the Dare. Both are indeed very different and remarkable events. I'm doing all three this year. If you don't want the event, then download the map and ride the route another day. Consider their route posting a public service.
