You really did an amazing job putting this race together! From course design and behind the scenes organization to media coverage! I was on one of the fortunate teams that got to experience the big tyrolean traverse (or flying fox). What an amazing setup! The views from there were spectacular, but let me tell you, my abs are really reminding me today of the effort it took to get across. Nothing like hanging 200 meters up in the air completely out of breath while wondering what your bike helmet would do if you fell down. I absolutely loved the mountain biking. This is by far the most single track I have ever seen in an adventure race. As for the organization and the behind the curtains work, well done.
Congrats to everyone involved in organizing and helping out in this event. Thanks to you all, we had a wonderful weekend doing what we love the most!

The race in Golden was pretty cool.
I am looking forward to the race in Edmonton, last year was a blast.

I want to let you know what I think about the events that you put on. I have raced in many different races over the years and without a doubt, the races that you put on are by far outdoing any other event when it comes to organization, safety, fun factor on the course, as well as logistics. You make sure that any level racer can race in your event as safely as something can be done in the wilderness that we play in: marked routes, options around potentially technical sections (such as trail riding), options to not have to expose your self at all to particular sections (such as Tyrolean traverses, white water swim etc), regular and advanced sections, as well as thorough planned TA’s offering care and support for racers (such as the need to warm up after a cold swim). These are all indications of a very well planned and run event and no matter what caused this past weekend’s event, I would not change a thing! You are Canada’s leading race organizer and we all look forward to and love your race.
Team Wild Rose had a fantastic time racing this past weekend. The trek was phenomenal with hard work and beautiful views. On top of that the bike ride down the mountain was by far the best bike ride in an adventure race. Very awesome!

I hope you don't stop putting on the race because of what happened this weekend. From what I see and hear from others, this is one heck of a well-organized race. Much better and safer than some of the ones out there. Pat yourself on the back too, Mike.

Yes, huge kudos to your volunteers - they were all awesome and so upbeat!
Also, know that VJ's comments in her email about "the best and safest organized race in our country" and "without a doubt, the races that you put on are by far outdoing any other event when it comes to organization, safety, fun factor on the course, as well as logistics" were not just nice exaggerations - they really are true. You really have set the standard which we compare other races to now.
As for VJ's comment about the funnest bike ride in a race, it was actually one of the funnest bike rides I've ever done!
