Thanks to All !
Thank you to all that came to make the 6th edition of the Hampshire 100 what it was. We experienced absolutely perfect cycling weather, witnessed cyclists (from pros to first timers) riding to their maximum ability, and shared experiences and cultures from participants across this country. Wow!
There are numerous online postings of race results, commentary, pictures, and videos happening. Some are already posted, others will be posted over the coming days, weeks, and months as the creative talents of some wonderful volunteers work their magic. Some of the suggested sites include:
This event would not happen without the enormous efforts of all our volunteers. As event director, I wish to acknowledge their invaluable support.
Finally, our charitable beneficiary, Crotched Mountain Rehabilitation Center, and their accessible sports program that helps many shed their limitations to enjoy what we all take for granted, thanks you for your support.
Top Pros Expected
Jeremiah Bishop has just been added to the start list for this weekend.
Looks like he plans to try for the NUE Series 2012 title.
Of course, there are a significant number of others that might have something to say about that,
including many of the top ten point leaders, Tinker Juarez, and more than a few of our home grown fast guys.
Next stop on the NUE Series - The Hampshire 100
Read what happened at the most recent event, Pierre's Hole 100 in Wyoming. Top contenders are headed to New Hampshire. Results here.
The course is being buffed daily...
Several new sections added, including what may become a classic sweet trail. Estimated course composition this year:
Adding to the competitive excitement the Hampshire 100 dishes out, racers and riders will be able to use GPS technology from their Garmin, iPhone, or Android to track their performance on Strava. Strava will offer awards and prizes to participants who outperform their competition on a designated 2 mile Strava Challenge segment of the course. More info at Strava.
Mountain Bike Hall of Famer Tinker Juarez will again be on course at the Hampshire 100. This will be one of the final events used as a lead up to his participation in both the National, and the World 24 Hour Solo Championships, to be held in September. (Tinker has previously won both events.) More information can be found at Tinker's website.
New England Endurance Series
The Hampshire 100 is pleased to become one of the founding events of the New England Endurance Series in 2012.
