You racers are amazing.

Your food donations turned into 201 pounds (plus $10.00) of food to donate to the Salvation Army.  I have attached a picture of all the food.

The race seemed like a success by all my measures.  No one I talked to was ever terribly lost, the weather was perfect, there were no mechanical issues which stranded anyone and no one crashed.  If you have any suggestions for improvement please send me an email and I will consider them next year.

I have one lost and found item (right hand glove).  If you are missing a glove, send me an email describing the glove and I will make sure you get it.

Let me know if you have any results questions.

Please post your pictures on FaceBook and Twitter (hashtag #Buffalo105).

Thanks again for coming to Newton for the Buffalo 105/55 and for all your food donations.

This race is Iowa at it's finest- great people, quiet country gravel roads, rolling hills, AND 2 great opportunities to see American bison and elk.
