Lord, we thank you for this sport and for those who dare to ride. Lord, as this sports grows we pray that your light will shine through lives of those who ride and those who love to watch. Lord, give those who believe in you the courage and opportunities to share your love and grace each and every day.  We pray in the name of Jesus, Amen
