HellRide 5 - Kelly's in!

Thanks to Kelly Baker's spectacular grassroots canvasing for votes, the recovering elementary school teacher from Redding will ride HellRide 5 in Downieville, Calif. Friday through Sunday.
The race is sponsored by Santa Cruz bikes.
Contestants - four men and four women - will ride at least 70 miles in Downieville, probably up the gnarliest downhill mountain bike course in the West. And the contestants have to do it alone, no support crew, on 30-plus-pound single-speed mountain bikes. And they'll be chased by pros Mark Weir and Rachel Lloyd. Get caught and you're out.
“This is seriously cool,” said Baker.
