The Seasoned Pro's at Team BikeSource of Columbus have headed up Aid Station One for many years! Last year serving more than 650 racers and just 20 miles into the race!
“I just wanted to get a quick note to say thank you and your team for putting on an incredible event. I have NEVER been to such a well-supported race ever. I felt like I was entering a Formula 1 race team pit stop at Aid station #1. Actually I was treated like I was royalty and that really left a lasting impression. I sincerely appreciate all of the effort put in and will return next year.”
