OK, guys, quick.. I need a cool, REAL name.

OK, since our race is A GO !! for June 6th on brand new fresh closed HIGHWAY !! on NE Ring Road. We need a cool name.

We need a name that reflects the full-on coolness of this event.

I met with the media lady on Wed. and she needs a name....   you have 2 hours.

Thomas thought of   'Lord of the Ring(Road)'  ... if you want to vote for this one, then leave a comment too.

Matt Mackay said...

lord of the ring road makes us seem like we are a big group of nerds. no offense...

Thomas said...

I like suffering....

Aren't we a bunch of nerds?

We wear spandex and talk about the qualities of carbon and the problems of aerodynamic drag...hella nerdy!!

Trev said...

Matt.. do you know what my PhD is in? :) I don't think people wonder if I am a nerd or not, they just wonder how big. :) Dan's kid has only learned from his father about "Doing Everything Star Wars, All the Time", so that covers that one. And well Thomas.. I was surprised too :)

Well, then vote for my cool G'n'R name or come up with a cool one!!

Lockie said...

Can I suggest that it doesn't have to be a pun? I'm not trying to be a downer for your creative efforts, and yes, props to Thomas, LOTR is very witty and makes for a good newpaper headline, but we could leave that to the journalists... Banff BikeFest, Tour de Bowness, Super Week, Tour of California, Tour de France... We should name it something that reflects how bass-ass and ultra-competitive this will be, and sure, mentioning the fact that it's on the Ring Road is cool, but it doesn't have to be super-cheesey.

Matt Mackay said...

true, haha. how bout just keeping it simple... "speed theory - race the ring" or "race at the ring" something to that extent that lets people know what/where it actually is??

Lockie said...

Oh...how about I just say ditto to Matt's comment and throw a vote for Ring of Fire.

Lockie said...

Shit, Matt, will you stop posting a second before me that makes my post redunant? :)

Trev said...

Matt... are you too young to remember G'n'R when they were totally awesome ?

OK... I hear both of you guys.

I don't care what both of you say though... on the technical guide I am still using the line..

"Highways used the way God intended"

Trev

Thomas said...

Oh now you dun it Lachlan...the mighty Sauron is rolling in his grave! haha.

I understand what Lockie is saying. But in defense of the "pun" we're not pro...its all just fun...isn't it...

Might be a good idea to keep it generic and not include ring then it can transcend venues...oh this is sure not making it any easyier is it Trev...

Matt Mackay said...

that can be the race slogan trev, nice one!

and no i'm not too young to appreciate a little guns, the music of my day gave me no choice but to run into the past!

Trev said...

You were pretty close to being referred to as Timbaland from now on.

OK... so do we all agree to:

SpeedTheory Cycling's 30km Race the Ring ITT

RobLukacs said...

Good choice

Thomas said...

Speed Theory Cycling's 30km "Race the Lord Stepping into the Ring Fire"
...ok ok enough...

That sounds good to me Trev

Matt Mackay said...

sure...trev, just add your slogan underneath and its golden.
