Notes from the best-laid plans! One of the ideas for the 2020 race was to have two start lines! Each chute would send off 30-50 person waves every six seconds, alternating so that riders would hit the woods every three minutes.

You can also see the Serra VIP parking and two-lane, one-way traffic on W. Kalkaska!

I think that is an amazing idea. Let's plan on it for next year!!

That’s a great idea. What did you have planned for the spot that created the ridiculous back up? Perhaps a fork in the trail that funnel racers into two equally mirrored trails?

I second that motion(idea). Then all you have to do is make it cold!

My idea is have a group of ten riders go off every 5 minutes, non stop. It would take about 41 hrs to send them all off. In wave 383, bring your lights.

Maybe some snow next year! Heck, every edition has been different from 64 degrees to 1 foot of snow! Long live the Iceman, well at least next year!

It would be awesome to have a Snowman version held in January.

I may ride the course that day! Great story being able to complete all of them so far!

Riding it this year whether official or not. Maybe we'll wait for snow, drink 10 beers, and take 4 hours doing it..but its happening.

Great pic, son! And by the way: today is his 46th birthday!!!😎

I have a personal score to settle with iceman! Can’t wait for 2021!

Always hoping for Snowman.

1993 was my first Iceman!

Nice work. 😁🚲😁

28 consecutive finishes!

Bad Chad!!!
