Two Dozen Super Randonneurs! — With the spring brevets now behind us, 24 who rode them are now Super Randonneurs (by riding a 200k, 300k, 400k, and 600k brevet in one season). This is a big accomplishment and the height of many randonneurs' seasons, much as the Colorado Triple Crown award for those riders. Congratulations to these riders!
