Will you be the Badass Rouge?
In the Tour de France the rider who finishes last is accorded the coveted distinction of being the “Lanterne Rouge”. Traditionally, this position has become much sought after over the years. Here at the Bowland Badass we have fashioned our own downmarket version of this for the person who drags their shattered carcass back to Bowland Badass Headquarters last: The Badass Rouge. Oh yes! Oh yes! Oh yes!
What is more there is a no expenses spared prize up for grabs. Last year the “Great Plattini” scooped this prestigious award with a thumping time of 15 hours and 43 minutes. This year we are sure that the quest to be the last finisher will be extraordinarily tough with many hardy souls vying for the title of Badass Rouge. We hear tales of epic cake eating and marathon telly sessions as some of our participants limber up for a crack at it. So, we’re sure there will be plenty of you vying for this honour and hoping to be in with a shout of winning this amazing prize…… but remember, in order to win it you actually have to finish the Badass. Nobody gets a prize for being an utterly pathetic DNF-er!
