THANK YOU!! – MABRA BAR Awards Party

24 11 2011

Brian Sjoberg and Tanner Browne with their awards

What a year it was for Team Bike Doctor! This last Saturday night saw two of the riders receiving awards for best all around rider in MABRA for 2011. Sonoma Restaurant played the hosting duties for this year’s awards banquet and they didn’t disappoint. The turnout was one of the best in years. Lots of racing friends to catch up with throughout the evening and reminisce on some of the highlights of 2011.

The two riders receiving awards were Brian Sjoberg and Tanner Browne. Tanner had a very consistent year and secured 2nd place overall in the Junior 10-14 category. He was only one victory away from nabbing 1st place. Congratulations goes out to Jake Thompson for the top spot in the Junior 10-14 category.

Brian Sjoberg (aka Sobe) resurrected himself from his “has been” days and with the aid of an unbelievably selfless team of category 3 riders secured 1st place. Brian started to see form in mid-June and continued to improve with a number of top 5 placements, including four wins, until the season ended in late August. An exciting year of category 3 racing was made possible by many great teams as well as the rest of the podium for best all-around rider. Congratulations Jason Hall, Andrew Shelby and Ben Frederick!

The Bike Doctor team did a remarkable job of working together on and off the bike in all the categories throughout the year. Brian certainly accounts for the teamwork conducted within the category 3 ranks and would like to give a big thanks to those that helped along the way!

Additionally the team would like to thank all the promoters that put on great races and the officials that put up with riders and got results posted and resolved quickly. Thank you as well to the other teams that helped animate all the MABRA races.

Many of the riders on the team wouldn’t be able to race nearly as much as they are able without the fantastic support of their families and sponsors. Thank you to the mom’s, dad’s, wives, husbands, kids, future kids, dogs, cats, honey badgers that support the riders. And to the sponsors, Bike Doctor, Cannondale, Bell Helmets, Tifosi Optics.

Great job by all the riders that call themselves MABRAins and additional congratulations to all the riders that made the podium of each category for Best All-Around rider! See all of you next year!
