so, the 10th annual Darkhorse 40 is over......
first of all thanks to everybody who signed up so early and came out to play in the wicked humidity! thanks for staying thru the monsoon! hey, at least we got the racing in before the skies opened up!!
thanks to all of our volunteers!
thanks to the EMT's who unfortunately had a very busy day... we never like to see them get any work at all. we would be happy to have them lay around with their feet up but sometimes it doesn't work out that way. a speedy recovery to all those that left a little something extra out there on the trail.
right about the time the hangover wears off from Singlespeed-apolooza, does it ever wear off.....we start prepping for the 40. lots of blood, sweat and tears go into putting out the best possible race experience we can. we hope that it shows. the 40 never goes off without a few hitches here or there. just the nature of the business i suppose... but overall we hope everybody had a good time!
a decade has passed...holy crap...since the Mayor and I cooked up a plan to throw a little race at Stewart. something a little different, something that we would want to race. we figured we would get a 100 people to show up and that would be that.....well after 10 years look at what it has become. never would we have expected our little race party to become this... THANK YOU!! who knew so many of you were just as twisted as we are!!! you are all as much to blame, i mean responsible for the growth and success of the 40! Thanks again!
what does the future hold? hard to believe that we are looking back at a decade of racing. i honestly don't know. as we do every year we will take some time off and reflect and see what we could have done differently, what we want to add, want we need to tweak.
so stay tuned!!!
again THANK YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
