Take your pick, 65+ miles or 89 miles…
That was the choice for riders in the Nature Valley Grand Prix Gran Fondo in Menomonie, Wisc., Saturday.
The team put about a half dozen riders in the fields including: Matt Christiaansen, Nancy Stutter, Glenn Spiczak, Bob Maki, Varick Olson, Steve Goulet and Vince Meyer.
The ride also included Bjorn and Dag Selander.
The long course featured roughly 5,500 feet of climbing, according to a few of our riders (more than they expected).
“There were lots of hills including several at 16 percent (grade),” said Christiaansen who rode the 89-mile course. “The ending hills were short but between 11 and 14 percent.”
