RUSA has been awarded the trophy for #1 Nation in 2004 from the Randonneurs Mondiaux.
RUSA received the trophy for most brevets ridden in 2004 by any RM country.
Randonneurs Mondiaux is the umbrella organization of national randonneuring leagues. RM member nations include France, Spain, United Kingdom, Holland, Belgium, Australia, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Austria, Germany, Russia, South Africa, Canada, and the United States.
Said RUSA President Bill Bryant, "All our members and ride organizers should be proud; earning this trophy means a lot to us all. It is a wonderful sporting accomplishment. I especially want to thank the tired riders who thought about quitting a brevet, but sucked it up and kept going to the finish—they earned points for the USA by not giving up and completing the ride."
