What a great ride and what a fantastic support from all of the volunteers. Not to mention delicious food at the end and at the rest stops. Loved those hot potatoes at rest stop 6. The volunteers would hold your bike for you at the rest stops while you ate. They even filled up your water bottles for you. The road signs were perfect and the road marshalls were there the whole time to support us. I was a bit skeptical about the new wave structure but it went very smooth without a hitch. Nothing like coming towards the end with everyone cheering for you and announcing your name. That just got me all pumped up to kick it hard to the finish. This is one of the best rides in the Mid Atlantic region. Thank you MoM for a great weekend. I shall see you next year. Shaun

Thanks for putting on such a great event! Huge thanks to all the volunteers and especially the crew of folks at the final rest stop on the climb up to Mountain Lake – they were amazing and incredibly supportive and motivational. Thank you!!

I did want to know if you were going to post the results by Century / Double and in more a “searchable” format. Thanks!!

I hope you will be filling in the rest of the “results” data – AGE, route, where the riders are from. I have been following this information since completing the long route in 2007 and REALLY look forward to keeping up on the Senior riders.

I hope you will be posting these results like the previous years.

This format is not ideal.

A huge thank you to the volunteers on this ride. You guys did an amazing job! I thought the staggered starts and emphasis on safety was effective. Sadly, I’ll be breaking my streak of MoMs at nine, but I’m looking forward to starting a new one in 2013!

Absolutely fabulous event. The organization and logistics were amazing. Despite my concerns about starting waves, it went very smoothly for me. The volunteers were terrific. The rest stops were well stocked and very efficient. Outstanding execution. Please pass on my deep appreciation for all the volunteer’s time dedicated to the event.

A superb event. We felt safe and well cared for, and the volunteers were awesome cheerleaders during those long, hard climbs.
On an aside, I hope you post the results in a format that breaks down the times by century and double.
Congratulations to all.

Congratulations on a *very* well-run event.

The start waves worked well, the police presence welcome, the course well marked, and the rest stops well stocked and staffed by enthusiastic volunteers (especially those with ice-water on the final climb!) Keep up the good work.

The Double Metric was my first biking event ever, and 33 miles was my max distance a month ago before a few good longer training rides. This was an excellent introduction to the world of road rides and was definitely more enjoyable physically than running marathons! The volunteers were friendly and exceptionally helpful, and I would recommend MOM to anyone thinking about an ambitious ride while saving the joints from running!

Many thanks for a well run event. I hope there were less incidents as in 2010. I know from my vantage point I had no issues with any of the local residents.

FYI: While the format of the results is not ideal at present, you can copy, paste then sort in your favorite spreadsheet to see the results in finishing order.

I just want to thank all of the volunteers!!! Especially the people at the last rest stop, 1.5 miles from the top. As I approached this guy holding a gallon of water asked did I want it on my head or my back. I just said “YES”. He dumped it on my helmet and down my back. It was glorious. Then he laid a cold towel on the back of my neck. I pull up to the stop and the wonderful ladies gave me cold water and put a little water in my bottle for me. It was just incredible treatment at a time when I was on impulse power. Thanks so much!! Great event.

Thanks to all volunteers. It was a hot day and you helped us a lot. I stopped at four rest stop and all were great. The potatoes at mile 93 for the century riders were amazing.
