Calhoun Cycle hosts 2012 US Brompton Championships reports that Calhoun Cycle will host the 2012 US Brompton Championship in Minneapolis this Sunday. The article is very informative on how the race is set up. I'll list the pointers down.
 1. Participants must ride a Brompton folding bike.
 2. No aerobars allowed.
 3. Participants must wear a button-up shirt, tie and blazer.
 4. No sponsor logos allowed.
 5. No Lycra exposed.
 6. Participants must wear a helmet.
 7. The course runs for 6 miles (9.6 kms) around a half-mile (800 meter) circuit.
 8. Whoever crosses the finish line first, wins a round-trip ticket to the World Championships
     in Blenheim Palace, England.
 9. Registration fee is $32.00 (PhP1,390.00)
Once our number here increases to more than 50 Brompton-owners (we're about 35 already) I'll propose to organize a Philippine version of the Brompton Championship. For now, we have to settle watching from the sidelines.
