Thank you so much to everyone who braved the wind and cold and joined us for Pirate Race Productions‘ best ever event!
I can not thank all our volunteers enough for their great work. Appalachian State University Wine to Water club president Katy Cook did a masterful job wrangling volunteers – including her family – and thanks to her hard work we will be presenting Wine to Water with a check for 1,000 dollars.
Thanks again to the members of the Meat Camp and Fleetwood Volunteer Fire Departments and the deputies from the Watauga and Ashe Sheriff Departments for keeping all the dangerous intersections safe.
Huge thanks to Chris, Cisco, and John from the Charlotte, Chapel Hill, and Greensboro Performance Bike shops for running the Pit Stop, providing mechanic support, and helping make the event run smoothly. Special thanks to Chris Danz and Eric Webster for working so hard behind the scenes to supply a tremendous mountain of incredible prizes.
Thanks to Friendship Honda of Boone for very generously donating the use of the Honda Ridgeline, giving us both an additional wheel truck and making cleaning up after the race a heck of a lot easier.
Thanks to Cam Frasier of Blue Mountain Revival Productions for running chip timing, and donating entries to the Blue Ridge Monster Cross Series races Savage CX and Wilson’s Revenge to some of the top women’s finishers.
Thanks to Capo Cycling Apparel for donating prizes and their continued support of the King of Pain Cycling Series. The next stop is Tom Dula’s Revenge in Wilkesboro on June 2. Congrats to our new leaders, all of whom get a Capo Custom jersey to defend and a free entry to Tom Dula. Everyone who signed up for Boone-Roubaix also gets $10 off the entry between now and April 31 – if you do not have the coupon code, email me.
Finally, thanks to the 248 of you who signed up and made this my most successful event to date.
I think that’s everyone. If I forgot you, call me out, because I really didn’t sleep at all this week until last night when, for the first time ever after one of my races, I slept like a baby.
