ďTHE COOLEST RACE HARDLY ANYBODY GOES TOĒ
A BACKCOUNTRY NORDIC SKI RACE
YO, FREE HEELED SKIER FREAKS AND OUTLAWS:

WHERE: On the world famous POTTO trail. Silver Lake main lot.
WTF: A 17+ MILE BACKCOUNTRY SKI RACE.
WHY: Need to ask, donít bother showing up.
WHO: Open to all who dare. Any, and all, Nordic Freaks welcome.
Better wear knee pads and duct tape your heels.
1st PLACE: CHEESEY GOLD MEDAL, lack of respect and ridiculing from your peers.
2nd PLACE: LONELINESS AND DESPAIR. Various cool shwag for odd categories as well. Might be some FREE BEER.
Donít miss this opportunity to really mess up your skis, blister the piss out of your heels and maybe, just maybe, bash your knee on a rock.
Contact RadNord at (734) 433-9174 for more info and to register.
GO FOR THE GOLD or stay home and knit with all the other sad sacks.
(JP note: This event is held on Sunday, the day after a Michigan Cup Race (freestyle skate) is scheduled to be held at the Huron Hills Metropark in nearby Brighton. Maybe more skier-type folks will show for the Potto this year! Usually it's mostly mt-bike freaks. How will the chips fall this year? Everyone is wondering!)
