Report

Thank you to the 106 riders who participated in this year's ULKHC. Big congratulations to Jamie Yang Pong and James Nicol for their respective wins along with Robin Betz, Kate Bergeron, Keisuke Otsuka and Maxime Cauchois for rounding out the podiums this year.

Another congratulations to WEDU Norcal, a newly formed team born from the riders of last year's CVC racing for their team victory along with Alto Velo and eBay for their second and third team places.

A learning lesson from this year was the power of consistency:

Lastly, we want to recognize the 100% Club riders who participated each week: Simon Gog, Michael Ruth, and Jeff Irwin.

As we look to next year, we plan to keep the foundations the same but look to make some updates:

Big thank you to Andy Crews, Frank Paysen, Michael Ruth, Alexander Komlik, and Edward Miller for all their work in the background to put on such an amazing series. We would love to hear ideas from all of you for next year, please feel free to email me with climb, scoring, website or anything else you can think of to incorporate for next year (bsmith201@gmail.com).
