Great race!
I can not say enough about how well it was organized!
Awesome MTB course!
Little less grass and sand on the road run.
Maybe a water station at the top of the road climb.
Great Race!!!
Thanks
Morgan :)

Fantastic day of racing. OK... the trail run was a bit painful until I got to the top but that is to be expected. Very well organized GREAT MTB TRAIL, who ever removed all of the leaves from the trail, give me a call as I have a yard full for you!!

Please do it again next year!

Mark,

I will gladly pay you a visit if by "yard" you mean a couple miles of sweet singletrack with a six pack of Octoberfest waiting at the end.

You Pinnacle folks are the best. Thank you so much for putting on such great events. They are fun and well organized in every way. And your web site is awesome. I don't know how you do it but I sure am glad you do.

Thank you and thank you.

Sounds like the Pinnacle crew done good.

I might just have to start working on my grandson to do some running for his old mounting biking grandfather, who in turn, will have to think about an "ugh" roadie bike!

Even though I had the longest mtn. bike time at 1:32, my first attempt at competition was a blast. Next year I plan on cutting at least 33 minutes off my time!!!

Thanks for the great time.

Dear Brian,

Thanks to you and all the organizers of the race. My husband and I have
been bike racing and doing multisport competitions across the country
for years and we both agreed that your race was one of the most
enjoyable and best organized events we have ever competed in. We plan on being there next year.

I drove 6 1/2 hours from NY to get to this race and it was well worth it!! I am probably the only person to not have an official finishing time. I flatted on my road bike and evidently managed to pinch two tubes after that trying to get going. I got a ride back the last 1 1/2 miles with a volunteer so I didn't go across the mat. I did go on and complete the trial run though. I loved the course, I am new to mountian biking and that was way over my ability but I still enjoyed it. Of course you could have mentioned how crazy that first hill was!! I thought it was a joke for an out of towner like me when I looked at the course on Sat. At least I wasn't too shocked Sunday when I found out the course really did go up a ski jump!!! I will be back next year to avenge my flat tire!! Of course in the big picture it won't really matter that much, I will still finish near the back somewhere.

Great Job and Congratualtions!!!
Oh, make sure you have the chicken barbeque again next year!!!

It matters! Thank you for making the trip. Every individual and team matters and contributes to the race in their own way.

Come Back next year, and bring your friends!

Team Pinnacle -

All of our team members agreed that this was one of the best organized and executed multi-sport events we have seen in the region. The incentive of awards for best team splits for each leg of the event makes you push it even harder out there.

Great course, great organization, excellent eats afterwards, generous awards and sponsors, and speedy updates to the website with results and photos make this race outstanding and something that the members of High Speed Vomit will look forward to competing in again next year.

Very well done!
