    I'm there. Great early January training goals, for beer!

    While I didn't win my six pack slam down (which I proudly exclaim was my creation), I still drank a fair share of the winnings (thanks Craig!). This makes it a win, win situation. Win, you get bragging rights, lose, you drown your sorrow in yours, and all other six packs!

    I love that the video focused in on the the beer we left trail side. Can't argue it wasn't cold when we finished and (discretely) dug in.

    Studs are fair game. Depending on the trail conditions they may not be an advantage. They can be slippery on bare rocks. But they do sound like sizzling bacon on the paved trail... mmmmm bacon

    mmmm... the 19th like I posted.
    The race video in the posting is from the 2011 race which was held on the 20th.

    It is the Sunday on the long weekend in February to coincide with Port Colborne's Winter Sportsfest.

    I think you'd do well to get in on the Smackdown. Just watch out for guys on fatbikes; they can be surprisingly quick!

    What is this Six Pack Smackdown I keep reading about. It sounds interesting, but I can come up with about 8 different things it could be. A little clarity would help so I can start training for it early.

    The race is run in waves of 4 to 6 riders. So what you get is like having a mini race within the race. CyptSydor came up with the brilliant idea of wagering beer on the deal. So.... challenge 3 or 4 of your riding buddies to a 6 pack smackdown. Each of you puts a six pack in the snow bank and whoever wins your waves wins all the beer!

    Training early is very important.

    It is considered good form for the winner to share the spoils of their victory in the parking lot following the race

    Thank you for explaining this for me. I knew there were waves of riders, I had a notion that each group does 2 laps (which I could just be making up). So I was imagining that the Six Pack Smackdown was that everyone had to drink a six pack between laps. Being a Guinness drinker, I was a little intimidated by this but figured I would take up the challenge by starting training for this now.

    Of course, now that I understand the Smackdown is not like that, perhaps I will practice anyways.....you know, just in case.
    I love riding my bike!

    Just about a month away.

    Who's registered?

    Who's still feeling the effects of the holidays?

    Who has a working bike?

    Who is going to start throwing down some six pack slam down trash talk?

    I'm in.

    Holiday's are over?

    I'll just use it as a run bike... no big deal.

    I may not win Six Pack Smackdowns, but If I do, I'll have a DD standing by.

    I'm still working on a working MTB. I've had a major swingers party between three bikes.

    Depending on the snow, a run bike might be the best!

    And, standard protocol is to share the bounty, so maybe bring that DD regardless.

    Thanks for the reminder, I'll register tonight. I think pretty much all the Holiday weight gain is now history. It should be once again a painfull reminder of mid-winter shape followed by an over consumption of Port Colborne Premium (OV).

    What are the criteria for the smackdown?

    See you all there, it will be fun!

    You can just put out a smackdown challenge with whatever criteria you want. Last year I put out a smackdown challenge for a Yedi Class. Minimum of 215 lbs because that is my weight. I also put in a clause that YOU couldn't be in my smackdown 'cause you're too damn fast. You are way too skinny now to be in a Yedi class anyway.

    If you are under 215 lbs you can join but you have to carry the shortage in weight as liquid beer balast. I.e. you have to race with your 6 pack. I would suggest cans

    Apparently since their are going to be a lot of Yeti(who are known to act just like their male counterpart the Bear) around I feel I must pass on this public safety video to the other contestants.

    That bar looks suspiciously like the City Tavern- the venue for the race!

    No, a different venue (just across the street from the starting area, not crossing the bridge, down the road)

    From recollection, I had a Rickards at the Canal Days race this summer, but I am sure they have OV and fiddy for your enjoyment.
