"I am so excited that Chris Horner is coming back to Ione. He is incredibly gracious and generous with his time to ride with us."
"Most Outrageous Season Ending Ride (comma) EVER (period). He actually allows you to ride in his pace line. At the end of a long ride season you actually can live the dream of riding with a GC tour rider and an more importantly an incredibly gracious man."

"We can't imagine not doing this event every year - everyone has a great time. Chris is as grounded in person as he is on TV...and just as chatty! ;) There's a ride for everyone - you don't have to be an expert rider or have a gazillion dollar bike to have fun. Where else can you ride around with a Grand Tour winner that...oh by the way...will be pushing 43 around event time. Motivation for a lot of us! The dinner the night before is even better so plan ahead and have a great time - we will!"

"I cannot imagine a more fun way for any bicycle enthusiast/fan to spend some time. The dinner is great and the stories are better. The summer heat is gone and the roads are gently rolling. Chris is incredible, his wife who joined him last year is also a delight. You will not regret one minute of the time spent at the Dinner and or the ride."
