Congratulations to all the riders who conquered the The Belgian Waffle Ride. The Red, Black and White Spinergy colors stood out amongst the crowd of over 2000 cyclists. Spinergy was very well represented in the final results with some fantastic times. For some of the Spinergy riders, this was their first time taking on a Gravel ride. Including Jenny Rios, who placed 7th overall in the Women's Wafer category. Some other outstanding results were turned in  by Katie Thralls - 11th Overall Women's Waffle, Marc Engelhardt - 8th overall Men's Wafer, Fabio Bottalico - 16th Overall Men's Wafer, McKenzie Steiner - 12th overall Women's Wafer. When you factor in the difficulty of the event, everyone who finished was truly a winner.
