The Blotto Stein is what the season all comes down to. It’s what motivates us to get up and train at 4.30 in the cold dark morning. It’s what drives us on when our muscles ache, our bank balances teeter and our wives complain that we’re never around. The Blotto Stein is a symbol of Glory that is respected and revered by all Blotto riders.
The 2014 Blotto Stein will be awarded based on road race wins between the 1st of January and the 31st of December, 2014. Only road races of club level or higher will qualify towards the points tally. Points will be awarded as follows:
- 1st place: 10 points
- 2nd place: 6 points
- 3rd place: 4 points
The 2014 Blotto Stein is currently being forged in the depths of Mordor and may look something like this….
Early in 2014, Birdman got all creative in the back shed (just one stop short of Mordor) and produced this little beauty. An old chainring, a shot glass and a keyring – a prize sure to motivate that extra panache required on the hard road to victory!
