Well back to back years with sunny 60+ degree weather.  About every course record was broken and countless personal records fell.  Thank you to all of you that attended yesterday.  You all have made this a special event and we hope you are already looking forward to next year's race.
I'd like to say thanks to a couple of fantastic volunteers who do so much during race day each and every year, Cheryl Dralle and Amy Carlson.  Also thank you to our superb sponsors for donating swag and making the ride a little more rewarding (Scheels, Planet Bike, Rasmussen Bike Shop, Surly, Twin Six, BikeIowa.com, Sakari).  Then to the best host in all the land bob at the Cumming Tap, the atmosphere at the Tap simply cannot be matched!
Awards were sourced through the one and only Squirrel @ ReCycled Artwerks
So thanks again and we'll see you all next year.
