Congratulations to the 2018 Colorado Triple Crown Finishers

Congratulations to the following RMCC members who have successfully completed the 2018 Colorado Triple Crown. This year's series was a difficult series to complete. 3 of the 5 events included in this year's series (AntiEpic Gravel Grinder, Cycle to Saturn Double Century, and the Kebler Kamikaze Double Century) were mixed terrain events that included sections of dirt/gravel roads and the AntiEpic Gravel Grinder is a true gravel event with 90% dirt/gravel roads. Participants of the Mesa Double Century also experienced the unanticipated difficulty of a wildfire along I-70 in DeBeque Canyon during the evening prior to the event, which prevented several participants from making it to the start of the ride. This year's finishers include:
  • Michael Bass (1) 
  • Ryan Franz (6)
  • Jason Kaminski (3)
  • Oksana Kovalenko (2)
  • Mark Lowe (9)
  • Tom Miller (8)
  • Harris Rosenthal (3)
  • Rich Rodgers (1)
  • Steve Rudolph (7)
  • Ray Rupel (5)
  • Andy Stockman (2)
  • Erika Van Meter (2)
  • Corinne Warren (4)
A special recognition to Ray Rupel (64 years old) who ties David Nelson as the oldest rider to ever complete the Colorado Triple Crown. Congratulations, Ray!
