Chittock and staff given Nevada City Classic’s volunteer award

Kurt Chittock and his staff at Ridge Feed and Supply of Nevada County were given this year’s Volunteer of the Year award for the 47th running of the Nevada City Classic bicycle race.

According to race organizer Duane Strawser, the crew delivers and sets up more than 400 bales of hay in less than 30 minutes. They then tear it down and haul it away even faster, Strawser said.

“Kurt and the guys who help him give up their Father’s Day Sunday every year, year-after-year, and never once have complained about being put out,” Strawser said.
