And last, but certainly not least, we thank the hundreds of racers who came out to race this year. The Month of Mud community is a truly special group of competitive yet considerate, fierce yet friendly mountain biking enthusiasts who have proven to be excellent ambassadors of both the sport and the series. The fantastic sense of camaraderie, support, and good will exhibited by everyone is what has kept this series going for 27 years. I am very proud to be the current steward of the oldest MTB series in Western PA and the mom of MoM.
Thank you all for a great year!
