My blog has been getting plenty of hits this week. I’m guessing it’s because people are wanting to see what happened with the puzzler. It was a huge success for us. More than twice as many people than last year, longer, better weather, more food, better prizes, and a real bike race vibe.
Thanks to everyone who volunteered. Races never happen without volunteers. Sometimes you get a good spot to watch some action. Other times you are stuck in the middle of nowhere and riders come by huffing and puffing every 5 minutes. So thanks a bunch to all of you who put up with broken up cell calls and complaints and confusion from riders.
For the full story, check out the write up on Cyclingnews.com. I spent a few hours compiling that thing. Here it is: http://cyclingnews.com/mtb.php?id=mtb/2009/feb09/elpasopuzzler09
For those of you in El Paso, please check out the BMBA blog. We’ve got some work to do.
