Angie Bartelt and Patrick Madore got engaged while walking the cross country course on Thursday! Congratulations and best wishes to the happy couple! Photo courtesy of Carol Anne Parker.

The best day of the #bestweekendallyear is HERE y’all! If you’re catching the action in person, don’t forget to stop by EN’s 5th Annual Rolex Tailgate at tailgating spaces S240 and S241, near the jog strip and announcer’s tower overlooking the infield to hang with Chinch, enjoy some libations, and win some swag! In addition to food, freebies, and fun, we’ll have #TeamLeeLee stickers available for purchase with proceeds benefitting Lee Lee’s medical and rehabilitation costs.

Don’t forget to set aside a little of that money you’ve slated to spend at the trade fair to bid on some of the incredible items donated to the online auction to support Lee Lee. There is an absolutely stunning number of items to browse though and bid on.

Oh, and I would be remiss not to ask: have you downloaded the EN app yet? If not, seriously, what’s your excuse? It’s beautiful and can send you notifications the second a new post is up, so while you’re out walking around XC you can instantly get EN’s coverage right there on your iPhone or Android! [App for iOS] [App for Android]

Here’s wishing all the competitors safe and speedy rides today!
