  1. Elliot! You took a wrong turn on July 27th and rode Bent Spoke instead of Broken Spoke which is why we didn’t catch you in the standings. I’ll email you to sort this out.

      1. Hi George. It looks like you did all the rides in Le Tour but not necessarily on the days they were featured. I also did this, but in order to qualify for this list of winners we would have had to ride Le Tour as laid out in the official rules here: http://bit.ly/14vdVBJ

  2. Ross,

    This is Pete Panana, could you tell me if I finished all the rides. I rode at the Pueblo of Jemez community wellness center. I know there are several days I had to do multiple rides due to the internet connection and a death in my family.

    I just wanted to see if I completed all the rides.

    Thanks!

  3. That was a great motivator. For those of us who don’t ride with a club I hope you will do some more of these type of individual rides. Thanks again

  4. You really should list honorable mentions, people like Eliott and myself, who completed the tour with one exception.

    1. Michele, which ride did you miss? I also had one day that I was not able to complete. They cut the power on me while I was riding on day 18 at the top of Gut Buster. I was devastated.😦

      1. Hey Ross, I missed Quicksilver and Monkey Pass, but I completed them both on the rest day :(July 15)

      1. Hey Ross,

        Just logged into my account and notice that there is no entry for my completion of Thunderball on July 30. I know that I was logged on when I completed that ride. Any suggestions as to what happened?

    2. We actually rewarded all riders the Thunderball and Rolling Thunder because we had a server issue for a few hours on each day that prevented some ride from being reported. Michele, I’ve got your account info and I’ll be in contact directly.
