WNR # 35

Attendance: Pete, Benson, Secret Steve (of recent Iceman fame), Racin' Rob, Kevin, A/C, Joe, and Cheryl.

Weather: Dark, but balmy at right around 50 degrees.

Trail Conditions: Excellent.

Another WNR season in the books with a record breaking 35 in a row. I've been trying to think of just one word to sum it all up, and all I've come up with so far is FAST. Week in and week out I've been amazed at how fast we've all been getting. It seems like every time the pace backs off even a little bit, Racin' Rob or A/C is putting the hammer down and shooting off the front leaving the rest of us with no choice but to reel them back in. These high paced weekly rides appear to be paying dividends come race time as well with some of us putting up fabulous results this season (Secret Steve in particular). So we can all give ourselves a proverbial pat on the back for a job well done this season. It's hard to imagine we'll get any faster next season, but there definitely appears to be a trend in that direction. Thanks to everybody for making the commitment to keep the WNR torch lit; I know there were at least a handful of Wednesday's on which I would not have ridden otherwise. Possible WNR extension next week at Avalanche in Boyne City depending on the weather. Thanks again for a great season everybody. Over and out.

P.S. We closed out the ride on Sarge's Trail in honor of his birthday yesterday.

Thanks for honoring my day by riding "Sarge's section" at Boyne. I'm just thrilled that the trail still lives on and that it wasn't just lost in the fallen leaves of random oaks, maples, and beeches. Thanks to Team Terpening for keeping it real.

That trail's not going anywhere on my watch. Boyne has it labeled on their trail map as the "Victory Lap", but it'll always be Sarge's trail to me. Happy birthday.
