This weekend, in Wenatchee, WA, they are having the Ridge to River race. It is a competition that starts in a nordic ski area, and ends in the city of Wenatchee, with the competitors porting out of the Columbia River. The event has all kinds of categories, but the IRONMAN is the king.
Here are the events:
Nordic Ski - 3 miles, top of Mission Ridge (Cross-Country Skiing)
Alpine Ski/Snowboard - 2 miles, top of Mission Ridge to Lodge (Downhill)
Run - 4.5 miles, Mission Ridge Lodge to Squilchuck State Park
Bike - 19 miles, Squilchuck State Park to Wenatchee River Park
Canoe/Kayak - 9 miles, Wenatchee River Park to Riverfront Park
Portage/Sprint to finish - .5 mile, in Riverfront Park

Brandon, AKA psycho...

I'm way to old and fat to even think this is rational. :)

I'll be taking no part in this event. I got suckered in to doing the cross-country skiing portion a couple of years ago, but I am much smarter now!

Will be riding in the Desert 100 on Sunday. Much more fun!

The event that you should all come to is Apple Blossom!

Wenatchee has many orchards around it, and the big yearly festival is in celebration of the blossoms blooming on the trees.

Funnest part about the 3 day weekend is that the ladies are becomming very brazen about displaying thier "blossoms" as well!

City Council just passed a resolution "asking" local stores to remove the "beads" off the shelf, so that the young ladies will not be enticed to flash.

man, I been stocking up on those things for months!

Girls Gone Wild!

Oh yeah!
