Congrats and thanks to all the folks who toed the line this year for the second annual The Good Life Gravel Adventure. Grassroots events such as the GLGA are possible because folks like yourself step up to the challenge. We had a very talented and diverse group of riders this year from all over the Midwest. Smiles were abundant throughout the day, no one got lost or hurt, and the weather couldn't have been better. Mission accomplished.
Above are the official results. Take a look and let me know if I have anything listed incorrectly. If you wanna protest...sorry! The results are official. :)
50 riders started the event and 39 finished. The official start time was 6:10 AM so all finish times have been adjusted to reflect ride time. I have received vary reports on total elevation gain from riders who completed the GLGA. The range of elevation gain based on GPS cycling computers is 8100 to 9500 feet. Anyone who completed in the event can attest to hilliness of the course. That's Nebraska!
Thanks again to all the sponsors, riders, volunteers, friends and family members who made this event possible. It's always fun to see folks excited about riding their bike all day. That was definitely the case this past Saturday. Until next year!
