“The more events you enter, the more chances you will have to win the vacation package,” Berry said. “Meaning, for example, if you register for the Slow Roll, Enduro, Jump Jam, and Dual Slalom, your name goes in the hat four times, which ups your chances of winning a super dope Bike Hot Springs Vacation package.”

Also, Berry said, Küat, a nationally known manufacturer of racks for biking and other sports, has joined Güdrun 2022 as a sponsor and will be providing a Transfer v2 hitch mount bike rack to give away. All registrants will be entered into a drawing with the opportunity for more entries. She said the Küat drawing is separate from the Vacation Package drawing.
