The team returned to Albion Hills once again for the 24HRS of Summer Solstice to battle it out on the seventeen kilometre fast and flowy race course. Conditions were hot, dry and dusty and the Ruppels delivered another amazing relay event!
Following a strong finish in 2015, we came into the race weekend looking for a consistent race and a repeat victory in the 6 to 10 Person Open category. Making up with the team this year was Jay, Kyle, Jan, Laura, Peter, Greg, Scott Leech, and of course Simon who was also on-point for the entire 24 hours. He kept the bikes problem-free and everything in check back at basecamp.
With almost 140 teams in our category, we were proud to finish 28 problem-free laps to take home the winners jersey for the second year! Big thanks to the apposing teams for some great competition and amazing camaraderie!
This race truly is a one of a kind and we’re already looking forward to next year as the event celebrates its 20th Anniversary!
