Finish Times and Photos for the 2013 Tour de Ranch Grand Fondo
The 2013 edition of the Tour de Ranch was fantastic. The day started off with massive storm clouds to the north and south that threatened to make it a soggy day. Fortunately, mother nature cooperated and ended up being an amazing spring day of riding the rolling hills of Northwest Florida. Below you will find the finish times and photos for the Tour de Ranch.
New for 2013 was the addition of a 64 mile dirt ride called the Dirty Fondo. We had a great turn out and everyone had an excellent time riding the new course. Overall we had a fantastic turnout for the Piccolo Fondo, Medio Fondo, Grand Fondo and Dirty Fondo. This was the second year Hammer Down has hosted this event over its long 17 year history. We have some great ideas for 2014 and will continue to grow this to be a premier endurance cycling event in the South East.
Special thanks to our sponsors: Big Daddy’s Bike Shop, Freedom Sports, Acentria, Dee’s Restaurant, Warrior Race Timing and Power Bar. Additionally, we would like to thank all of the volunteers that stepped up and dedicated their valuable time to help make this event a success. Thank You!
