From John Smith:
As outgoing President I would like to thank all the club members for your support over the last 4 years. We have experienced significant transformation in the club over these years whilst continuing to focus on our goal of developing and promoting the sport of bike racing in New England. We have seen the level of active race participating members increase substantially over this period and have also seen our uniforms on the podiums in every category and discipline ( Road, Cross, MTB ) with incredible regularity. We have been able to create a racing team program that is without equal and we have had the honour of helping some new and younger member of the team realize their full potential and move on to professional racing. I am especially happy to be passing over the presidency to Jeremy Cratty. His creativity and drive for excellence in everything we do has been at the heart of most of these developments and I know he will continue to push MRC to be the absolute best. Thanks again to everyone for 4 great years. – J.S.

From Jeremy Cratty:
It’s an honor and a privilege to be the next President of the Minuteman Road Club. I’ve been a member for about 10 years and the club seems to get better every year.

On behalf of the club, let me send a huge THANK YOU to John “Smudger” Smith for a job well done over the last 4 years. During his term we accomplished some unprecedented things. We stepped up our membership and sponsorship efforts which has allowed us to fund the success of our Road Racing and Elite CX teams. We’ve also been able to maintain our stable of cycling events while donating money to fine charitable causes like The Ken Harrod Memorial Fund, NEHSCA, and the Boys and Girls Club.

I look forward to working with the rest of the BOD and all MRC club members to keep building on all the successes we’ve had over the last number of years. – J.C.
