During 2007 five more RUSA members earned the distinction of becoming an "Ultra Randonneur" by completing their 10th Super Randonneur series of brevets.

They are: John Lee Ellis of Colorado, Christopher Kaiser of Georgia, John Kramer of Washington, Mark Metcalfe of Texas and Wayne Methner of Washington.

In terms of longevity, Ellis began his string in 1991. Methner was a model of consistency and did one SR series per year for 10 consecutive years. On the other hand, overachievers Metcalfe and Kramer both completed two seasons with two complete SR series of brevets and one season with three series. And then there was the man who seems to be in a tremendous hurry—incredibly, Chris Kaiser rode three complete Super Randonneur series during the past three years!

Randonneurs USA congratulates these audacious and determined riders and proudly adds their names to the list of Ultra Randonneur laureates. Congratulations, gentlemen!

Several U.S. cycling clubs with impressive results at PBP 07—and an American who was the youngest female finisher—were honored in January at the ACP's meeting in France.

• The DC Randonneurs were honored as the club with the most women finishers. The club had seven women riders who completed PBP.

Almaden Cycle Touring Club had 10 finishers and no DNFs.

Boston Brevet Series had 8 finishers and no DNFs.

• The Davis Bike Club was honored for the most tandem finishers, with four tandems.

• Boston rider Emily O’Brien was honored as the youngest female finisher.
