A Correction from the Editor.
On Saturday, the SSWC09 blog reported that Jacquie Phelan placed third in the women’s division of the Main Event.
The cycling world was upended by the news of this extraordinary comeback. The fact of the matter is that Jacquie did not cross the finish line in third place, nor did she cross the finish line at all.
Here at the SSWC09, we do not count anyone but the first man and woman to cross the finish line. Every person noted in our official results was there for reasons beyond the realm of ordinary pedal work.
Jacquie Phelan did not place third in the pedal race, but she placed first in Wacky Awesomeness, and thus claimed third place behind Harriet Tubman, who finished first in Shreddy Gnarliness.
