It is obvious that we are back from Battle Mountain. This is a time to look back on a great event, and especially thank the people that made all of this possible.
Thank all of the sponsors; please take a look at our sponsor page. Al and Alice Krause for organizing the event. Chris Broome and his crew fot their efforts at the start. Jun, Brad, Preston, Danny, Andrew, Jeff and Paul for the timing registration. The large group of catchers which were lead wonderfully by Barclay. Team Varna, and Mr. Wessels for his generous hospitality during the weekends we worked at the bike. And of course our team members that could not come along: Jan van Steeg, Pieter Pas, Hans Wessels and Arjen van Noordenne.
We will add our photos and movies to the Cygnus photo page in the coming weeks.
