Wednesday Feb 26th club member Richard Reinecke and director George Niotta joined Johannes Kornacher, 2008 RAAM (Race Across America) participant on a road trip century ride from Temecula via Carlsbad and Elfin Forrest. Here they are at Oceanside Pier the site of the annual start of RAAM. Johannes who is Swiss born competed for a Swiss sponsored two man team with a 10 person support crew. They completed the race in just over 7 days. Thanks to Richard B, Nels & Doc for joining on the first 25 miles.
We ride it at least once a year. This time the crew went via Couser Canyon with mobile support the entire way. We started with 13 and finished with 11, only lost 2. That's pretty good!
Members gathered for a great dinner, awesome beer and many walked away with some great raffle items. Big winners were Richard Buffham- $200 gift certificate from B-rad's and Lisa & Russ Fortin- Private Wine tasting party for 10 from Wine on a Dime. Thank you to Corey and the crew for a great experience!
