Results for the Bite Hard Boonville Road Race are uploaded…finally!

We had a really huge amount of help from the Boonville locals, including about 30 volunteers from Cycked, the local bicycle advocacy group in the Anderson Valley.  Registration, follow cars for every field with neutral wheels, finish line judges, turn marshals, and more.

We had the Mendocino Amateur Radio Club in follow cars and at the Finish line monitoring the race progress, and ready to deploy resources as needed.

We had the Jah Med paramedics in cars as well, radio dispatched and ready to respond.  Happily, there was only one minor incident reported, and that was as a rider was descending after his race was over.

We had the Anderson Valley Teen Center folks selling coffee and pastries at Registration, and then working the Feed Zone along with Lisa from Osmo Nutrition.

We had the Mendo Coast Cyclists working the course.

We had Kelley Schultz from CalTrans loaning us sign posts and safety vests and orange cones.

We had Stevan Derwinski, the Godfather of Boonville. At least half of the volunteers I talked to said something like “Stevie D said to be here at 6am, so here I am.  Put me to work.”  They showed up ready to do whatever we needed…whatever YOU needed…to make the race a success. Some had an hour or two in the morning before work, and some worked all day. They all pitched in and did an amazing job!

We had Jill D, who hosted the Race Director crew for three days and made us feel like part of the family.

We had the Boonville Hotel, where everybody could relax and enjoy the afternoon while the awards ceremony was being assembled.  I have been to a few, but never a nicer location!

We had the First Prizes from Roederer Estates and KOM/QOM prizes from Philo Ridge Vineyards and FREE Bite Hard Cider from Boonville Cider House.  Hey, I didn’t have to drive…it was soooooo good!

What an awesome bunch!

Thanks to all of you for making the First Bite Hard Boonville Road Race a success!  We hope you liked the course, and we are planning on the same format next year, with just a little fine tuning:

1. With a few more riders, we will not have to combine categories.  Women’s categories were UN-combined for prize purposes as I was driving home and checks went out yesterday.  My apologies for the confusion at the Start line.

2. More food and drinks at the Feed Zone.

3. A FUN RIDE along the same course for non-competitive folks.

4. Your suggestions here!
