    Official P2A 2013 Paris 2 Ancaster thread

    While it's a bit early for a P2A thread, I just noticed that you have to register by January 15th to avoid a rather abrupt price increase.


    Also, the course has been lengthened to 70 km this year. That is all.

    I'm in! Signed up in the big pimpin' VIP wave. I understand that we are provided with cocaine and hookers at the finish.
    Strava made me do it....

    It's never too early to talk about the BEST RACE EVER*

    Signed up for the elite wave. Been dropping my result by like 60 places in the three years I've done it. That means Garrigan should watch his back this year! Well probably not, but hoping for another improved result.

    Curious as what the extra 10 km will be, I hope it's not tilled farmers field straight into the wind.

    And as a teaser, I know there is a significant effort currently being put into a web series documenting how various people prepare for the P2A. Stayed tuned.....

    * That maybe be subjective, but I really enjoy it.

    I will take this opportunity to remind you that I have a commitment from you in writing on this forum to register for 2013 under your internet moniker.

    OK, maybe it wasn't a firm commitment, but still...

    My as well get Circlip to make this the "Official P2A 2113 Paris 2 Ancaster thread".

    Earliest start ever. In efforts to get more competitive the switch to Red Baron 60 starts, effective immediately. I'm also gonna go to the garage and admire how fast my bike looks! I'm gonna take this seriously.

    Apparently I have given TheDumbOpinion some rep recently and can't pay it forward. Can someone get him for me and I'll pass it on?

    Done. Trusting the OP doesn't mind the slight title change.

    because you must rep 100 people before you can rep the same person again.

    start repping.

    by the way - signed up.

    The joke is on me. I had your suggested title above copied verbatim, before a realized it said 2113 instead of 2013. Now fixed. Again.

    You can race better in anger then you can do in fear.
    If you hurt in your efforts and suffer painful dings. Then you are doing it right.

    Here I was, expecting everyone would quietly sign up and save $15, and not discuss this topic further until the week before the race.

    And, unfortunately, to sign up for the first start wave as "ghettocruiser" would cost me an extra $140.

    I hear ya, but I only frequent Eastern Canada, and I'd be surprised if more than 100 people post regularly.

    I think you're throwing your rep around to liberally. Your a rep whore.

    BTW, your new avatar freaks me out.

    This race seems to be on my radar every second year. I guess it takes more than a year to forget how much it sucks and by the next year I have forgotten and then I register.

    Side note: I think that souvenir jersey just made me puke in my mouth a little bit.
