Another WS Memory

The Awards Ceremony at the WS100, while a bit over-the-top, is always one of the highlights of my year. After all of the emotion of the race and the celebration of the finish the awards ceremony is the final chapter, the dessert, if you will.

This past year, my family found themselves in the front of the group and therefore we were right there when everyone received their buckles. In the photo above you can see the legendary Ian Torrence after he received his buckle.

Ian has always been one of the classiest guys in the sport and after chasing him through mountains, forests and deserts for the past 15 years I can honestly and sincerely call him a friend. His post-race congratulations accompanied with the words, "Impressive work, brother." will stay with me for a long time. Thanks Ian!

Cheers man! Very impressive indeed, as was the rest of your summer. Here's to seeing you out on those trails in the next 15 years.

I can't think of a time that I have ever seen Ian rattled in a race. Alwsy even keeled and supportive.

Fast Eddy - Welcome to the Dance!
