New American Randonneur Challenge Awardees!

Irene Takahashi rode her first 1200k in June, the mountainous Cascade 1200.  After some relaxation, riding permanents and brevets, she followed this up last week with the Colorado Last Chance 1200k.

Here Irene is looking pleased as a tailwind has come up to waft her to the LC turnaround point at Kensington, KS:

That successful finish means she's now earned the RUSA American Randonneur Challenge award, for finishing two (or more) US 1200k's in a year.  Bravo, Irene!

Vernon Smith also achieved the ARC award this year, also via the Cascade and Last Chance.  No less an accomplishment, even for the seasoned but still cheery Vernon.  Congrats!
