    I usually wait for the post card (or returned check) to find out. I've been pretty lucky the past few years, I guess I will know soon one way or the other. Entry fee keeps going up like it has lately I may just give up on it, getting a little to pricey by the time you throw in a couple of nights in a hotel plus gas.


    edit: just checked and I'm in!!!!

    Sux! I have not gotten in for like five years now... my check has not cleared yet! I assume I'm not getting in yet again... and I'm originally from Cable! Maybe that's why...

    to dmennenoh and others who don't get in. Don't give up, try the 50 ways to enter contest. My older brother has gotten in that way 3 times, 2 with written essays and last year with a really (really) bad rap video about the race. He did it with his friend and seeing two 60 year old guys rapping isn't a pretty thing but it got them both into the race. Another guy I know got in last year with a cheq fat poem based on The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe. Give it a shot, nothing to lose.

    Thanks Rob. I actually did get in once doing the 50 ways a few years back... It's just lame that I never get in via the lottery. It's a flawed system if you ask me. I mean seriously, if you don't get in for 5+ years they should let you in... They should put something in place for that.

    Yeah I'll be the first to admit that it's not perfect and that there are people probably more deserving to get in than a weekend warrior like me. For me it's a great motivator to keep me on the bike all summer in order for a decent showing in September.
