Still waiting on the town for 2010, so no updates for now on the Bethel Spring Series 2010. For a bit of filler, nothing beats some sarcastic, computer generated dialogue.
Warning: swear words and sarcastic frustration present and vocal in the below clip. Do not play at work, other sensitive environments, or around kids under 18.
Road Race Organiser vs Marshall (sic, at least for us, but in the UK, who knows):
It's not all like this, especially with the Bethel Spring Series. I have to say that, overall, the experience at Bethel is much better than "normal", with few of the ordinary race promoting headaches.
It wasn't always like that though, and the race always went off because of the most conscientious and hardworking folks.
When you go to a race, any race, keep that in mind. Do what Dave Wiens did at the Leadville 100 - thank the promoter, the folks marshaling, and ride your heart out.
