Now that the race report is done, it's time to give mad props to a few people that went absolutely above and beyond with the races this year.
First, my lovely wife, who for reasons unknown puts up with 2 weeks of hell each year so I can get out there and take care of business. Despite running 2 businesses, being pregnant and a mom, she still takes care of a lot of loose ends so I can run amok.
Parks and Recreation of Southampton, for again loaning us the venue grounds. THANKS!
SYS inc for loaning us the building, lockers, showers, chairs, parking lot, bathrooms....
Southampton Town Department of Public Works for loaning us traffic barricades!!!
For believing Southampton needs a real, honest to goodness, bike race..
TK, DM/JR, BP, DB, SF, RL, AS/SM. Thank you. When you wonder why we can provide the best prize list for women in North America, travel money, barrier primes, these people's financial contributions are why.
Anyone that loaned me a house, couch, bed, room, apartment, fold out mattress, inflatable bed, guest house, pool house, RV, trailer, or other amenity so we could host a deserving racer. THANKS!
