Ride Recap | TRIPLE CROWN CHALLENGE Bentonville-Bella Vista 2016
What a day! Almost 150 riders accepted the Triple Crown Challenge! The challenge was to shred the majority of three Oz Trails in one ride. About 35-40 miles of killer singletrack. Nine states were represented AR, MO, KS, IN, WI, LA, OK, TX and CO! Over 100 riders completed the challenge and received the TCC flask!
I would like to take a moment to thank our main Challenge sponsor Jake at Newell Development for all of the support. They are doing some rad things in downtown Bentonville. Please check them out! I would also like to send a special thanks to Kevin owner of Pedaler’s Pub for serving up some delicious gumbo for our tired riders. He knocked it out of the park! And Steve at Creative Awards for the awesome TCC finishers flasks and event shirts! These folks rock!
Best part of the day for me was seeing dead riders come in and slowly come back to life after some hardy chow, cold ‘recovery’ beverages and epic story telling. A big thanks to all the ride participants!
