We’d like to congratulate Kansas Rugby Foundation president Bob Tucker on completing the 100 mile bike course in this past weekend’s Garmin Unbound Gravel. This race kicked off in Emporia, KS where Bob began the 100 mile journey through the Kansas Flint hills where he battled poor road conditions, elevation changes, uncooperative wind and nutrient replenishment throughout the loop that also ended in Emporia. His wife, Susan, played a pivotal role in aiding him to the finish line along the way, including not pulling off at an exit at one point, which would’ve given Bob an out. She added, “sometimes the best supporters are those that don’t give you the quitting option”. Bob had trained 2 years for this race, and we couldn’t be more proud of him on this great accomplishment!
