First Annual Gravel TT @ Millstream Brewery a Success

Big thanks to all the racer, volunteers, and fine folks at Millstream Brewing who came together to make this new event a success.  Despite the weather, in particular, water levels not cooperating with the original, planned course, everything came together to be a great event on a beautiful September day.  Results are posted on the race page.  Here’s to looking forward to next year!

Here are some photos our friend Paul took:

Sylvan Island Stampede Race Recap

ICCC had a great showing at the opener for 2013 IA mountain bike racing.

A beautiful day showed spots 2, 3, 4, and 6 all going to ICCC women in the ladies expert race. Great job Robin Williams, Brittany McConnell, Emily Robnett, and Cassandra Kessler!

Aaron Robnett and Kevin McConnell held down 1st and 3rd in the men’s expert race too.  Excellent racing!

A big congratulations to everyone in blue who came out and raced, we had a great crowd, some excellent finished, even a couple of first timers.  All in all ICCC had a great day at the 1st IA mountain race of the year (even though it was in Illinois)!

And just for fun: Flip Hambott made his first appearance as newly appointed ‘ICCC Official Race Dog’.

Finally, big thanks go out to everyone at FORC for putting on a great event!  For complete results and photo links, head on over to the fine folks in the QC:
