Thanks to all of the racers, spectators and volunteers who helped make our 11th Annual Toys for Tots event another great day at the trails and on the road. While the weather report for Sunday did not look so good, it turned out to not be a bad day at all. The mountain bikers and spectators were generally shielded from the wind by the tree line and the sun really warmed things up until the late afternoon. The roadies had to contend with the wind "head on" for a while but everyone was able to finish the 40mile loop and then enjoy some much deserved food served up by Villa Verde - everyone loved that part!
Still, we were able to fill about four large Toys for Tots boxes with some great toys for area children!! Thanks to all the participants and other donors for helping us support this cause.
There are many people who made this event possible. Thank you to all the volunteers who helped to prepare the course, setup, take down, time and generally insure the short track race ran smoothly. Thanks to EC Velo for funding the event and to the Bicycle Post for their support of the trail. Finally, once again, thanks to Christine Strom for creating another set of really awesome trophies, they were enjoyed by all!!
