is an ambassador
for HERA Foundation. Over the years, Joyce has played an integral part
in making this event possible. Joyce was great at helping us raise awareness
for ovarian cancer by sharing her story. Right now Joyce is struggling
with recurrence and she won't be able to speak at the race this year.
She'll be here in spirit though as she continues to inspire us!

Wilmington, DE 19807
Sunday May 2, 2010
Andrew Mein's Excellent Adventure at Granogue is dedicated to the loving memory of our dear friend Andrew Mein. Andrew was a founder of the Wooden Wheels Mountain bike team, a stalwart in the cycling community, a loving husband, a superb trials rider, capable of amazing flatulence, a terrible bass player, an incredible mechanic, and a very good friend.
Andrew was struck by a car and killed in 1998 while commuting home from work on his favorite bike at the time, a steel fixed gear road bike. Andrew was a hipster 10 years before hipsters knew they were hipsters.
race is put on not in his memory, but as a celebration of his life,
and his vision of mountain bike racing. Andrew believed in fierce and
fair competition, and having a great time doing it. Andrew was known
for saying, "always be an ambassador for the sport" and for
bringing many new racers into the game. Andrew was a fan of punk rock
and the community and grass roots nature that came with it. Please join
us in this celebration.
