Cranksgiving update

I posted the spokecards earlier, but now we have results...

From the NYBMA...

Cranksgiving 10 was the biggest & best New York Cranksgiving ever. With 106 racers, it was New York’s largest alleycat of the year, too. Five different charities were supported: City Harvest, The NYBMF, Nazareth Housing, Hudson Guild, and Saint Mary’s. Over $2000 was collected for City Harvest & The NYBMF. Nazareth Housing & Hudson Guild both received 100 cans of baby food. And St. Mary’s received at least another $1000 in food donations.

The generous donations of our many sponsors allowed prizes to be given out for the top 6 girls & guys, plus top 3 out of town, and a few prizes for the “most generous” people, who dragged in entire turkeys and far more than twice the amount of food they were required to buy. A special thanks goes out to Neighburrito, John & Charlene Roberts, Justin Talent(?), Bushwick Country Club, and Nooka who’s generous gifts allowed us to raise over $2000 in cash.


Great job, Dan and Drew!

Some of the sponsors involved...


Hit the NYBMA Cranksgiving post for links to a bunch of flickr photo sets, but for now you get a video of the start...





...also check the NYBMA for results, with Drew and Dan being the only CT riders other than Hartford Aaron (3rd out-of-town), who seems to show up at everything! (I thought you were, *West* Hartford Aaron??!!?!).

And while we're on the subject of New York, it looks like the Route One Stage Race is being resurrected for the '09 NACCC in Boston, this time heading from NYC to Boston. The Scorchers will be hosting the New Haven portion. Watch out!

Aaron's in Bristol... don't let him lie and take Hartford cred!

Bristol isn't legit enough for me... my rep covers a 30 mile radius.

It was good to see scorchers down there, tearing up NYC like pros.
