The registration for the MS 150 closed in record time this year by registering the 13,000 riders within a few hours of opening. I’m sure there are a lot of disappointed potential riders that didn’t get to their computers fast enough to register for the largest bike ride in the United States. If you are in this crowd, hang tight. Over the course of the months to come there are always a number of riders that drop out of the registration for various reasons and spots open back up. If you have questions or concerns you can contact Lone Star chapter.
There has been some confusion for new participants in that registering for a team will secure you a spot in the ride. Unfortunately, that is not the case. All riders need to register with the MS Society to be eligible for the ride… riding on a team only gives you added benefits and support along the way.
If you were one of the fortunate ones to get registered for the MS 150, we welcome you to join Team Sun & Ski Sports and ride with us. There are ton of great benefits again this year…. you can find more information and get registered on our website. The cost is $75 and includes a team jersey and free registration into a number of training rides leading up to the big event.
Here is a list of the training rides that are included with your Team Sun & Ski registration:
o Puddle for the Ducks… February 7th
o Pedaling the Prairie… February 14th
o Spring Breakaway… March 1st
o Tour De Houston… March 22nd
o Katy Ram Challenge… April 11th
It’s that time of year again…The BP MS 150 is set for April 18-19, 2009. MS 150 Registration will open on October 15, at 10:15 am. Last year’s registration closed after 11 days, so register as soon as possible. The MS 150 website is all new this year, so once you register, be sure to click “Join Team” and choose TEAM SUN & SKI SPORTS as your team.
Team Sun and Ski Sports is THE TEAM to be on…the benefits are better than ever! Here are just a few…
- Sun & Ski Sports Discounts and 5% pledge rebate program
- FREE participation in all official recommended MS 150 training rides that Sun and Ski Sports sponsors. This benefit alone is worth $125! The first ride is Nov. 2nd, so be sure to register for our team before then to receive free participation!
o Tour De Donut…November 2nd (register soon to receive free participation on this ride!)
o Ducks Unlimited Ride…..February 7th
o Spring Breakaway….March 1st
o Tour De Houston……March 21st
o Katy Ram Challenge….April 11th
ALL OF THIS…in addition to a FREE 2009 JERSEY, a FREE MASSAGE IN LA GRANGE, and much more. Team registration is $75. The COMPLETE BENEFITS for Team Sun and Ski Sports are included at the end of this post.
Team Sun & Ski registration begins October 14th, please be on the look out for more information.
You also need to sign up with MS starting October 15th at 10:15 AM. Make sure you sign up for both the MS 150 AND Team Sun & Ski, because registration with just Team Sun & Ski does not reserve you a spot in the MS 150. You need to sign up for both.
Let’s ride to end Multiple Sclerosis and have a great time together.
