Iceman 2009

We had a record number of teammies race the Iceman this year, with some really fantastic finishes. The course was fast and relatively hard packed and the temperatures reached near 60 degrees for this year's Iceman Cometh Mountain Bike race, a 28 mile point to point race from Kalkaska to Traverse City.

Congrats to all Dark Horse Girls, especially Alicia who raced to 2nd place in Sport Women 19-34 (2:15), Melissa who finished 6th in Exert women 35-44 (2:08), and Susan who worked a tandem to 4th place in her class (2:06). Rounding out the field were Janet in 11th (Expert Women 45+), Lynda in 22nd (Expert Women 45+), Jen in 25th (Sport Women 35-44)and Andrea in 29th (Expert Women 35-44). With nearly 3500 total racers this year, each of these classes was bigger and stronger than ever.

After some well deserved recovery brews in the sunshine...

...we continued on with a Dark Horse Racing style party at the Union Street Grill in downtown Traverse City.

Congrats to all Icemen and Women! Dark Horse Racing is looking forward to 2010!!!
