    Also, the winner of last year must have ridden about 85-9500 miles a month for 6 months to get about ~50K+ miles. Even if that mileage was for 12 months, it's just crazy riding
    The mileage contest is indeed yearly. The contest is run from year to year. The idea of having a contest run twelve months was discussed at great length years ago on this forum.

    The current format allows for a greater participation as some of us are limited by having four very distinct seasons.

    Have fun!

    I still like the picture that appeared in the ON of the stack of tires necessary for the 73k+ miles.
