Financial donations added interest to event

The Adirondack Velo Club recently held our second annual cyclocross race at Johnstown High School. We would like to thank our sponsors, volunteers and the Greater Johnstown School District.

Without the generous support of Brown’s Ford, Fulmont Insurance and Alpin Haus it would have been impossible to host a race of this size. This year 150 racers competed in our event. Most of the participants were from upstate New York.

However, riders from New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine also competed. The financial donations were instrumental in making us part of a regional race series thus attracting interest outside of Fulton County.

The Bike Works of Johnstown helped improve our prize structure. During the event, Bike Works’ mechanical support to the bike racers was greatly appreciated.

In addition, a number of community members and local students volunteered during this event. Our event was very organized and safe due to your participation.

Finally, the velo club would like to thank the Johnstown school district. We used the fields and trails behind your high school. It was a very challenging, yet enjoyable, course.
