Shout outs and results

Thanks everyone for coming to crush gravel with such an outstanding attitude! All the smiles, maybe smiles of relief, the thanks and vows to return encourages us to get to organizing next year's event. Thank you all for the donations too! Your generosity has enabled us to have some seed money for next year's event so we won't be running out of coke, buns, pulled pork and vegetarian sloppy joes so quickly. We had 192 starters and 170 finishers!! Word!! Shouts out to all who showed up and rode! Shouts out to Karyn, Joan, Kristie, Philip, Kat and crew who volunteered and worked the checkpoint! They are really key to the success of the event. Big shouts to all who donated to the event:

HED - Every year we are fortunate enough to have support from the best wheel makers. They provided an Ardennes wheelset that was raffled off and congrats to Jon Friedell. He will be leading the pack on those!
Penn Cycle - Huge thanks to the support provided by Jim in the Penn Cycle mechanics van. He had the set up at the beginning and at the checkpoint. I know more than a few people got some issues taken care so it is good that they got your back!
Planet Bike - Each year we get a box of goods and this year the lights, patch kits and bags are greatly appreciated! Thems some good people over there!
Twin Six - T6 not only hook you up with the goods, they have gathered a group of supermen and wonder women who ride and rock thier goods. The waterbottles with discount coupon and an ever needed pair of quality socks went fast!
Banjo Brothers - The seat bags and the phone pack with handlebar mount never fail to disappoint. All there goods look great, work great are top notch! Every endurance ride and race I do with the help of Banjo Brothers!
Behind Bars - Not only does Behind Bars pop up in videos of the Y.N. Rich Kids, but they got the hook up when you are northeast. Check them out, give them a shout and thank them for the socks, shirts, hats and water bottles!
Caps Grille - You want some barbeque, hit Cap's up. It is the real deal as evident in the pulled pork that late comers fingered through since the buns ran out. Everything was finished and we will surely be getting more next year!
Hollywood Cycles - For every Dirty Benjamin, Hollywood has been there setting the bar. He kills it steady and brings some awesome goods to share. I had to hold back from grabbing something for myself. If you on the greenway, hit Hollywood up. You need a bike fit, hit Hollywood up. He is high on the cool kid list!
Barbieri PNK - A few randonneur bags were provided and scooped up!
One on One - Good coffee, great peeps, awesome stuff, always on, etc. Thanks for the megaphone hook-up!!
Chrome - They brought their RV and Hamm's for some beer flavored recover drink. They also provided some cover for us to log the returning riders. Thanks Dan and Amanda!!
Donkey Label - They gave us a stack of their handy phone protectors. A plus when riding gravel in the rain!
