Just two short months ago, Windham, New York, welcomed the international mountain biking community for the excitement and festivities of the seventh race of the 2011 UCI Mountain Bike World Cup series.
That beautiful little town in the Catskills and many of its residents took an unbelievable beating from Hurricane Irene earlier this week and they need your help. Main Street in Windham is all but gone. Many businesses and houses have been swept away by the raging waters. Several of the people responsible for putting on the World Cup – all of whom are volunteers – have lost their businesses or homes and in some cases, both.
