2021 Sea to Sea Expedition Race
We would like to update the AR community and our participants as to the tragic accident at the Sea to Sea this weekend. As many of you have already heard, Troy Manz, a participant in the race, was involved in a fatal accident on Saturday night. A vehicle struck his team while they were riding and despite the immediate efforts of another rider and the rapid arrival of emergency services, Troy's injuries were too serious to survive. Trish Wilkinson and Barbara Gilmore, the other two injured riders, were taken to the hospital for treatment.
The families of these racers have been notified and arrived yesterday. We have been asked by the authorities not to discuss any details of the accident due to the ongoing investigation.
The AR Georgia family is heartbroken at this tragic event and our thoughts are with these families at this difficult time. No issue has greater priority for us than the safety of our participants.
A GoFundMe account has been set up to help the family.
The generous donations from this charitable campaign will be used to support Troy Manz, Patricia Wilkinson, and Barbara Gilmore. The funds will be used to financially support unforeseen medical, travel, and funeral expenses from the car accident. Patricia Wilkinson, Troy Manz's fiancé, will be receiving the funds. Trish will allocate the funds to an immediate family of her own, Troy Manz, and Barbara Gilmore.

2020 Race Tips from the race director. Navigation will be very straight forward, however, get familiar with using a TOPO map. There will be no plotting UTM during this year's race, however, there is an O-Relay during the race, so make sure at least two team members can Navigate alone. All information forms and maps are waterproof. Train mostly on your mountain bikes before the race. Be prepared for any type of weather, late February in Florida has been in the low 30's at night to high's in the 80's during the day. Winter in Florida is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get.
