Finally, I’m able to sit down and , enjoy a nice farm house ale, and try to wrap my head around all the awesomeness that transpired today. Pursuing a major undertaking is undeniably a team effort, that requires everyone carrying a bit of the load, much like spokes in a wheel. One breakdown and the wheel tacos quicker than you can say carnitas. For the past 5 years I’ve been fortunate to surround myself with strong spokes in this wheel called “hell of the south”
First off, thanks to all of the volunteers for showing up in the pissing rain standing on a corner south of nowhere, waking up at 4 am to sort rider numbers, staying up late to drop safety pins in an envelope etc., etc. Without these folks we would not have been around for 1 year much less 5 years.
Thank you to the community, the volunteer fire department and the united Methodist church of Berlin, TN. Who knew this community would embrace us like they have.
Thanks to our awesome sponsors; MOAB, Castelli, Swiftwick, Darrell Waltrip honda, SVMIC and others I’m sure I’ve forgotten.
Finally, thanks to all of you, the racers. Your support is justification for the vision we had to provide a unique race and experience unlike anything we’ve had in middle TN.
I’m sure I’ve forgotten half the shit I wanted to say, but the beer is almost gone and I’m slipping into a coma.
