Why are they charging so much to ride a century? $60-$70 is outrageous. I would expect a lot of ride pirates on that ride at that price. That is a new set of tires. I am not advocating pirating, but that is a rediculous charge. I was thinking about driving in for the 40 mile road race.

Does it include a jersey? I have ridden a couple of centuries that cost that much where a jersey was actually included in the registration fee. Otherwise, you are right; that's $25-$40 above market.

Yeah, that is really high considering the location. Don't get me wrong, that part of Missouri is beautiful and a challenge to ride, but there aren't a lot of other things to do in the Springfield area. I mean you can only see Bass Pro Shops so many times, eat Cashew Chicken, and I am way to young to go to Branson and catch Johnny Lee singing Lookin For Love at the Country Tonight Theatre. Does anyone know anything else about the road race?

This is the first year they've added a race, so it's kind of a wild card, but the entry fee does include a jersey, so it's not as high as it sounds (for what you get).

Of course, it's also a charity fund raiser, so you can expect to pay more than at a "regular" race.

I'll be riding it for the first time, but doing the century, not the race.
