It all started Saturday with a new event, a trail run. We had 91 people show up to run our mountain bike course. Not being a runner I thought it was crazy, but the runners seemed to love it. We also had 110 people sign up for the pre-ride, and a dozen for the time trial. It was a good start to the weekend.Yesterday was Andrew Mein's Excellent Adventure at Granogue. It was big success. After last year I thought people would be gun shy but it was just the opposite, 541 racers came out and enjoyed our course.
I think we need to acknowledge Mr. DuPont for letting us come out and take over his place for a couple of weekends each year. Not to mention the constant activity for a couple of months leading up to the events.
I also can't say enough about our cycling community. We had over 50 people give up some of there time to help make this race one of the best out there. I even heard a guy say "They should hold the world championship here, this is a Real Mountain Bike course" That was music to my ears.
Plus we helped Sam raise $4000 for HERA, always a great cause.
I'm not sure if we can top this year, but we are sure going to try.
