Quick results

In a moment of hesitation...... involving a bovine, Mark Smelser was able to sneak away from, and hold off, for 70 miles!, the hard charging Corey Godfrey and Dan Hughes. Troy Krause rounded out the top 4. Matt Wills won the SS division. James Stamper (no relation) walked away with a custom fitting session with Carmichael Training Systems with a hand of two pair, and Craig Schimdt won a hour massage at lotus health works with two aces!
Great time and fellowship were had by all.
My apologies for the marginal directions. Several folks got to spent some quality time in a bar in Alta Vista, waiting for transportation.
Glad that you guys got to meet bearded Tom.
More details and a better synopsis later once I unload everything and and collect myself.
Big Shout out to our gracious sponsors, Sunflower Outdoors, CTS, Cycle City, Big Poppies, City Billy Cycles ( the shirts were a huge hit!), Spilker Ales, Chamois Butter and Lotus Health Works.
Many thanks to all the participants that made this event happen, and to my lovely and gracious wife who does not smother me in sleep for hosting events like this, and dispenses goo and pizza with the utmost grace and panache.

  3. We had a blast. Brent and I also ended up in Alta Vista, but we didn't hit the bar. Next year we will be back and I will navigate.

  4. That was an awesome day! Thanks again Joshua and crew!
