Another Great Year at the Dakota Five-O!

We had another great turn-out this year for the STRIDER races at the Dakota Five-O in beautiful Spearfish, South Dakota! Many of the children participating were there to cheer on their parents as they came over the finish line after 50 grueling miles of mountain biking.

[caption id="attachment_4356" align="aligncenter" width="591" caption="Future Dakota Five-O Riders!"][/caption]

It's always nice to see the next generation of bicyclists getting so much support from their parents and others in the biking community. Congratulations to all of the Five-O finishers, there were some super fast times this year.  We can't help thinking that a future record setter may be one of the STRIDER racers of today!

Thanks to everyone who came out. See you next year!
