Levi Leipheimer‘s second annual GranFondo cycling event in Sonoma County, California reportedly brought in a whopping six thousand participants this year. Each one of them likely came to the event with a mission of personal accomplishment, and/or to contribute to one or more of the event’s many charities.

One participant, Mary-Jane (pictured below in YMX’s Flower Clouds cycling jersey and matching armwarmers), was proud to finish her GranFondo cycling run two minutes ahead of her goal, in spite of the fact that she stopped in the final 15 mile stretch to assist a seriously injured cyclist. Mary-Jane called 911, and stayed with the injured cyclist until medical help arrived, before continuing on to a  rewarding finish ahead of her personal target. Now that’s a champion! YMX congratulates Mary-Jane!
