Extra Credit Commentary from 2014 Tour de Central Champion, OL Nick Sullivan, who responded to our request to say a few words about the race and event:

"Thanks for asking Will.  I have done the race for the last 7 years running and have a blast every year as you can see in the third photo which is of me.

Got to thank Paul Silka and the big bad "the Deboer" for putting the race on these last years. Good time had by all with free breakfast after care of the PLF and Marina del Rey Hospital so hopefully next year we can get more participants.  It is not too bad a trip and great for team building.

How about you next year Will?"
