This is a great race! Very well organized with lots of community support. I spent all day at the race last year, taking pictures, and will be there again this year. I hope you make it out!

Chris Mailing of Turin Bicycle and I are the ones that put this together, it is a labor of love, hard work but a hell of a lot of fun. Glad to know people appreciate it! The day of the race I will be planted next to the stage so swing by and say "hi".

If I could make one plug for the race on your blog... we are looking for more volunteers to help marshal the course and work on making the event go smoothly. We love it when fellow bike people volunteer because a lot of spectators are unfamiliar with bike racing and you make great ambassadors. If interested check out the volunteer section at and give us a call or email.
