Thomson Time Trial Results

The 2017 Ronnie Thomson Memorial Time Trial went off without a hitch this weekend!  Well…there were a few crashes, at least one dropped chain and one flat tire, but everyone had a blast!  It was great seeing several folks try their hand at racing for the first time, and of course a big thanks to Mike for the tour of the Thomson plant.  Results are posted below, and shout out to Mark for and his wife for the pictures!  More can be found on the OMBA Chat Facebook group.  See more pics on Facebook at the GeorgiaMTB page right here.
