Michael D. Parsons commented "Crossed it the Eastern Continental Divide twice today, the Boone Gran Fondo - a perfect ride"

Coach Timothy Hall from Beech Mountain, North Carolina commented "Big day in the High Country. Very cool event. Average uphill segment times but 3rd overall finisher in the 100 mile. Solo off front from mile 10 until mile 80 when Zimmer caught and passed me. Then at mile 90 I got passed by Savre."
