Garden City Gravel – W 9 Mile Recap

Jul 2, 2023 | Events

Good Morning,

We had a special day with warm temperatures and dusty conditions. Highlights on the dirt were 40 recreation rider starts which is a new record. Some PR’s were achieved, Margie and Samuel Reed come to mind first. On the Elite side Caleb and Stella continued their early summer dominance. Excellent masters riding by Matty B, Peter Leclaire, and Tamara Bessette.

Thank you to our special supporters for Saturday. Grist Milling and Bakery, Black Coffee, Zillastate, Grizzly Liquor, and Big Sky Brewery. Thank you to Bjorn and Tammy for hosting.

Thank you to some highlight volunteers. Shannon Miller and Melissa Jaffe at Aid 1 and Larissa Walker at Aid 2. Chris Ecret on photos and course marshaling. Emily Plant as support vehicle and host.
