Pretty much Denver is the place to be on the 21st! The set up is looking awesome, the after party details sound bananas, the cash purse for first is $2K for dudes, $1K for the ladies and all of Colorado’s rail destroyers are marking their calendars and registering online. Hope to see you there! ~Rian
