THE WEATHER, THE COURSE, THE COMPANY… ALL AWESOME!
Congratulations, Iceman Cometh riders! Another goal achieved, another adventure had, another story to be told (and we hope that you WILL tell it, at our November 12, post-Iceman party – details below!)
For the first time in years, Iceman riders enjoyed a day of clear sky and sunshine. Our Team sure appreciated it… along with the delicious chili and good will served up in the Hometown tent (thank you, Jean and crew!) Ride times were rockin’, good times were a-rollin’… what can we say, but “can’t wait ’til next year!” Iceman or bust, baby!
