Did you miss ... you havn't as yet ... you still have hope .... go and register at
July 1st. Payday for many but also a date that many from the cycling community were eagerly waiting for.
Registrations for TFN Ten were open at 9 am and thus started the mad dash to register and 'submit' the form.

Bharani, a TFN09'er and an avid cyclist in the Chennai circuit, was a classic example. Having being informed to have all his information ready, he was waiting for the registrations to open at 9am.

But to his dismay, he didnt have a passport sized photo to upload. Quick thinking and some photoshop'ing' helped him upload the picture but that cost him 6 minutes!

For all of us who worked our butts out to make sure the site was up on time and didnt crash in the stampede, 9 am was verdict time!

The site worked like a charm and the registrations just kept pouring in.

Social networking sites like FB and Twitter became impromptu message boards for the lucky ones with trigger fingers who registered themselves early, not to mention loud prayers of hope and some even pleading to be chosen. 

Jack Lee, who gets to play the (un)enviable task of chosing the lucky 100 will in the next couple of days be the Most hated/loved person in India.

Do we hear Z class security being offered?!

Nonetheless, the action has just begun. TFN Ten - Ride, Cherish, Remember!
