That's right, a genuine certificate of participation signed by Steve Johnson, CEO of USA Cycling and local race hero.
It's gratifying to know that USA Cycling sent this suitable for framing certification to all 2,000 participants. It was mailed in a full sized envelope with a cardboard backing to ensure it received no damage. What a great use of entry and licence fee revenue.
I'm sure Trebon's disappointment of a 2nd place finish was tempered by his certificate of participation. Page will likely display his next to his World Championship silver medal.
What a great day to be a member of USA Cycling and a cyclocross racer!
