Letter: Thanks for supporting the Tour de Los Alamos

-A A +A
By The Staff

Over 200 bicycle riders registered for the 37th annual Tour de Los Alamos bicycle race on Sunday, July 12, 2009 in Los Alamos, with approximately half the participants competing in the citizens one-lap event (28 miles), and half the participants competing in the licensed two-lap (56 miles) or three-lap event (84 miles).  

The youngest participant in the entire event, 14-year-old Gabriel Intrator from Los Alamos, was also the overall winner of the Citizen’s Race.

Bicycle enthusiasts and scouts need to remember Gabriel’s name as he will have a long future in the bicycling profession. Fortunato Ferrera, a new postdoctoral student at Los Alamos National Laboratory, won the three lap event in a four-way show down at the finish line.

Numerous volunteers and fans spotted the entire race course through Los Alamos and White Rock in the 90-degree weather, cheering on the racers and providing traffic control support at all intersections along the course. Water bottles and refreshments were gladly accepted by the racers as they sped by.  

Los Alamos County Police and N.M. State Highway Patrol led traffic control efforts. The Los Alamos Auxiliary Fire Brigade was on standby throughout the race in the event of any injuries.
