Team Bike Doctor asked the Twitterverse on Tuesday, "Who will be Strava king of the mountain on Sunday at Black Hills?" DJ Brew (Clean Currents p/b Don Beyer KIA (nee Volvo)) is the current segment leader, having blazed the finishing hill in only 21 seconds during a recon mission of the course two weeks before last year's inaugural event. Alexis Zink (NCVC / United Healthcare) holds the women's KOM at 41 seconds. No stranger to punking Strava segments, Zink owns several dozen Strava records in the Bethesda and Potomac region.
YouGotDropped echoed Team Bike Doctor's challenge and will award a You Got Dropped t-shirt to anyone who usurps Brew for Strava segment supremacy on the finishing hill. YGD will also award KOM premes for the 1/2/3, 3/4, Masters, 4/5 and Women's races.
GamJams likes the ladies, and is putting up a pair of GamJams socks to any woman who is able to take over Zink's KOM ownership during the Black Hills race.
The Black Hills Circuit Race runs on Sunday March 25th in Black Hills Regional Park in Boyds, MD. Slots are still open in the juniors and women's races. If you have registered but haven't done any VO2 max intervals yet this season, well then we can't help you.
