The kids actually got the exact same race packs as Will and Nathan, even for their short ride. It was a back pack with a few different little bike/race/energy associated samples, a water bottle, a newspaper and a banana.
And, the kids even won some spot prices, both of them, with a little "help" from the nice volunteer..! (Unfortunately for them, it was a bike magazine and a bottle of wine. Score for the big people though!)
We also went to the big Race Expo and had a look, but all Will and Nathan came home with in their shopping bags was a new pair of socks each! Bad shopping mojo.
