    Hey guys and girls!
    Don't forget that Dirt, Guts and Doughnuts V is on its way Saturday, October 12 at Lock 4! This race and fundraising/awareness event benefitting Ride for Reading is bigger and better every year, and year number 5 is going to be the best yet!

    DGD V promises to have loads of prizes for winners and just about everyone who even shows up. We also started "the Doughnut Pledge" this year - Racers, get pledges per doughnut to 100% benefit Ride for Reading! The guy or girl with the highest per doughnut pledge amount is going to get a sweet prize!

    Registration will cost $5 more on race day, so register online now and save some doughnut dough! Registration by Sept. 30 guarantees you a DGD V T-shirt.

    CLICK to register!

    Also, if you or yours aren't racing and are interested in volunteering to help put on the event, please check out volunteering opportunities HERE.

    Probably the funnest MTB event I've ever attended! Had a great time with my daughter last year.

    Need more incentive to register for DGD V? We're giving away a complete Raleigh Talus 4.0 29'er, courtesy of Ride615! Anyone that registers can win. We also have a Salsa frame (details TBA), courtesy of Biker's Choice, hundreds of dollars in gift certificates and much more - including great prizes for the winners, of course.

    Don't forget to register by Sept. 30 for a DGD V t-shirt! After that, the tee will not be included in registration.

    I registered yesterday morning. I haven't raced in 22 years. My goal is to start all the way in the back, and have plenty of fun, and hopefully cross the finish line before everyone leaves. And hey, if I score some free stuff....bonus.

    As someone who is a former racer..and maybe a future one. Thinking about this event as a race, is not the best view of the event. Unless you can turn a 35 minute lap. you most likely won't win without eating donuts. So, if you get 10 or 12 donuts down and ride a moderate pace, you could probably win your age group. I have no chance! I'm 195 lbs and I have to race with all the donut fueled hosses! But hands down, the funnest event of all the races, festivals and group rides I've ever been on. I took my daughter last year and we had a great time, she won some Swiftwicks and we created great memories. I think this event is becoming or become the premier MTB event in our area. Not to be missed!

    Hmm, you'll be racing me, I'm just a big guy. I weigh 210 without even trying. But like I said, I'm just going to have fun. For the record, I've done a 47 minute lap at Lock 4, and that was the second lap I'd ridden that day, and I wasn't really what I'd call pushing, but the bottom line is, I have a comfort zone that's a much lower speed than it was when I was young. So I'm really going to go ride and have fun and eat some doughnuts and be sociable. And you know, support a good cause. I look forward to seeing you guys there.

    For me, being competitive on the bike came at the cost of my kids and family. I don't have a race bike anymore, and I'm okay with that. So for me, last year, I caught up with my daughter and we rode together and had a great time. So I won't come close - but I may defile myself with a dozen donuts and get all my time back!

    It's like doing Insanity or P90X - it's not that you couldn't do any one of the exercises, but when you put them all together, it's really hard. That is the way eating a lot of donuts while mountain biking is, you could throw down the donuts, but doing it after riding a few miles is a lot different.

    Really looking forward to this event!

    Its all about strategy. This year I am on the sidelines volunteering, but here is my offering of strategy. Skip the first stand and ride like hell. When you get to the last stand, you only have 2.5 miles to go. Put on a bib, take a shot of insulin, and get after it. That way you only have a 2.5 mile gluttonous ride thereafter, albeit a hellacious 2.5 miles.

    And if you can't eat more than one in two minutes, you aren't gaining anytime anyway!

    One donut If I recall, that is the rule - 2 minutes for every donut. I wondered if you could eat enough to get negative time...

    back when i was skinny, i could down a box of 12 in one sitting, no problem.... so that buys 24 minutes - the time to sit there and eat them.

    It is astounding how difficult it is to eat a cold Krispy Kreme while out of breath and jacked up on adrenaline . I thought I would eat 7-8 and I was fortunate to eat 3 1/2.

    Great time, and if a Thunderbird Wings shows up again I will be saving room. Won't see Harpeth Bikes this year....boo.

    I have to miss this again this year due to a craft show for my wife's business. Each year I wonder if the weekend will change but it always seems to match up unfortunately. One year I'll get to come. :-)

    Or if you do a slow to moderate lap and eat 25+donuts then you can win big. So I've heard. Great event. Ill be there.

    Nice. Anyone know where they're posting the full results? All I know is Jan came in 5 or so minutes behind me with 16 minutes in hand from doughnuts, which made him something like 10-11 minutes "faster" than me - and he was 3rd. I need to know where I placed so I can work on my tactics for next year. But I promise it won't include trying to break Garret's new record of 34 doughnuts. I'm not interested in wearing that crown.

    They will probably be on the Ride for Reading website soon, http://rideforreading.org/. They were posted at the tent at the event yesterday.
