And that is a wrap. Almost. SSUSA came and went a week ago, and I’m still dealing with the aftermath. A lot of people were here, close to 200 riders. I’m still getting a lot of thanks from a lot of people for the event, but I feel that everyone should know, I had a huge amount of help and support from others.
Mandy had a large hand in designing the logo, organizing the course, marking the course, calling some shots and doing a lot of piddly little things that no one else wanted to do. Her prize? A t-shirt and a bottle of booze of which is TBD.
I also need to thank my friends for all their help and support. Doug & Ginger, Shaun, Matt, Ian, Keller, M2, Rosy were all there to do the day of dirty work.
Ron Murray from iRide provided a lot of help massaging the course into the sucker punch it was.
Scott Search for riding sweep and making sure everyone got off the course alive. Huge help there.
Taylor at Capitol Offset Press for the number plates.
Jonsie at Factotum for the amazing shirts (once again!)
The Alchemist for providing a pretty killer “aid” station on the first part of the course.
Drunk Cyclist for providing the mother of all “aid” stations.
MTBVT, Ryan Thibault and Jake Goss for organizing the photobooth. The pictures came out awesome.
Tabbatha Henry Ceramics for the 1st and last place awards.
Our pize sponsors:
The Black Owls for the rocking good music on Saturday night. Amazing.
And of course, thanks to everyone who came out and took part of what our little corner of the world has to offer.
We’ll see you next year in Minnesota!
