Norbert de Shaetzen, our host in Widooie, Belgium.

Our affable host, Norbert de Schaetzen, captured the one time he sat down all weekend.

Local Hosts, and assistants.

Norbert de Schaetzen is the lead organizer of this event, and host, at his home. Our sincere thanks to Norbert and Francoise for their fantastic hospitality, and also thanks to Norbert's son Thierry, (Mr Oddjobs), and Matthew Mason, Tech and whatever! A big and much appreciated assist with registration was by Marc Haywood. Craig Hutson did an admirable job of shaking the loose change out of pockets for the Riders for Health Charity 50/50 draw.

We want to sincerely thank ALL those who helped, the ride leaders, those who did odd jobs, all the volunteer presenters, and many more - without you it wouldn't have been the huge success it was!
