Matt and I have wrapped up the 2013/14 cyclocross season, I’ve just completed my yoga teacher training and Matt’s already gearing up for Spring training and another big Ultra-Endurance season as I wait for the snow to melt to hit the mountain bike trails.
All of this downtime can only mean one thing:
It’s time to celebrate with a huge party and raffle!
This year, MMRacing will be supporting the Amy D Foundation with proceeds from the raffle.
Amy was like a little sister to us and she’ll forever be an inspiration for her fearless pursuit to achieve her dreams of being a professional cyclocross racer and for always encouraging others.
On Friday April 11th, we will be hosting a massive party at HQ Boston (12 Channel Street, Boston) where we will announce the winners of the raffle. You do NOT need to be in attendance to win one of the top prizes listed below, but we will keep going through the tickets until everyone in attendance leaves with a prize... that's how amazing our sponsors are.
The party is open to the public, no purchase necessary ... and with the guest DJs we're about to announce, you'll REALLY want to be there. But if you want to go home with a prize, you have to buy a ticket.
Tickets are $50 apiece or 5 for $200 (limited to 20 packs of 5). Tickets are limited, only 400 will be sold. Tickets are available for purchase online through BikeReg here, at the party or through Matt or I directly.
Here's a breakdown of the prizes:
A COMPLETE CUSTOM SevenCycle Mudhoney SL built just for you. Valued at ~$6000
Here's what you'll win:

Honey All Roads frame, disc fork and stem, painted to match. Valued at ~$2500
The Honey All Roads bike is exactly what it is named after. This bike is designed to ride on all road conditions – paved, broken, carriage trails, and even well worn single track. Ever get the urge to ride into the that side trail you spot during a long ride? That’s what this bike is for. The All Roads is a lot like a classic ‘Rando’ bike but with the ability to work well under harsher terrain scenarios.
