Jay Chesterman and pal Kent McNeil traveled to France in early July to participate in what is billed as the hardest mountain bike race in Europe. Jay came away from the race convinced that billing is indeed deserved. He later described the event as brutal and the hardest thing he has ever done.

This is long, settle in.

July 20th was the date for the 2nd iGran Fondo. This year's nearly 100-mile ride/race is promoted by the City of Sioux City as an annual kick-off event to precede Ragbrai. Each year's ride will start in Sioux City and end in the Iowa tour's starting town so the route will change annually.

Nelson Wins S-n-S Crit #2

Jon Nelson won the Spoke-n-Sport series criterium #2 on July 10th.

After early breakaway attempts came back and a mid-race break in a pairing of SC Velo teammates Cody McCullough and Jon Nelson ended due to a crash (Jon's), the final winning move of Cody, Jon and Ken Pike (CPC) was established. Cody led out Jon for the win with Pike coming in 2nd and Cody, 3rd.
