That’s right, the end of the 2016 season marks the fifth year of Once Again Nut Butter Racing, and year five was the best year yet!
With 62 racers on the current roster, Once Again Racing took part in dozens of events throughout the season that included road, crit, gravel, triathlon, mountain, and cross. Many of the team’s riders also participated in weekly training events, winter spin sessions, and helped the LCC host The Prattsburgh Gravel Classic and The Rock Criterium and Gran Fondo.
As we enter the holiday season, and the official end of racing for 2016, we look back on some of the highlights, thank all our riders and sponsors for their hard work and support, and most importantly, celebrate the good times with great people.
