I can’t even describe to you how great it was to see everyone leave the starting line tonight. The sound of your knobby tires humming down the dirt driveway is something I will never forget.
Thank you to Rick, Barb, and Dominic for volunteering to marshal. They pretty much rock my socks off for hanging out in the woods helping us all out. Thank you!!!
Megan is the greatest registration table girl EVER!!!
Thank you Bicycle World for putting this whole thing on. Chris Ethier (owner for like, a million years) had no hesitation backing this whole thing up. Will Cluster (manager) has this uncanny ability to make great things happen all around him (I’m serious, not only is he an excellent mechanic, but he somehow made porterhouse steaks appear in the shop fridge by way of some bazaar barter situation). Ryan Sinclair (oh so spec savvy) just shows up and like, wabam, we look cooler. Then there’s Jim Stevens who makes me laugh so hard, I have spit beer through my nose, cracked my teeth on my handlebars from doubling over laughing while riding, and once I peed a little in my pants. How can a race not be fun with these people?
Mesa Verde and Domino’s Pizza provided the snacks for this race. Bless ’em!
Next week we will address the confusing lap/finish sign turning situation, and the “second left” syndrome that overtook a few participants. We will also get it together quickly with the prizes situation after the race.
All in all, a smashing success.
