Hyde Park Blast 2011

Celebrating its 10th year anniversary, the Hyde Park Blast has grown into one of Cincinnati’s largest community events! The full day of activities includes a morning 4-mile run and kids races, an afternoon/evening cycling event, and block party with music from 3 Day Rule. 10,000 people are in the Square at the event’s peak. Most importantly, over $220,000 has been donated to cancer research from the event!

Originating as a 4 mile running event – a cycling criterium was added into the mix 7 years ago by Mary Beth Knight from Revolution Fitness. She directed the race for 4 years, and designed the technical course currently in use along with her husband Eric. The 2005-2008 events featured strong regional fields and a vibe that forged a rock solid foundation for the years to come. 2009 was a turning point for the Blast bike race – with a heightened pro men’s purse of $5000, and the hard work of Blast board member Greg Tankersley, the race elevated its stature attracting nearly 100 pro 1/2 men, and was the largest road race in the tri-state in total numbers.

Excessively worn chainrings develop small burrs that effectively thicken the chainring – causing the chain to stick to theses areas and not release. The accumulation of mud on the chain and rings accentuate this condition. The suck part is …
