Thousands of Ironman competitors spun through Verona on Sunday, Sept. 9, during the 112-mile biking portion of the 140.6-mile race. Cyclists came from across the county and from outside the U.S. to compete in the race.

Buses took spectators from downtown Madison, where the swim portion and the end of the marathon take place, to Verona for the annual Loop Festival on Main Street in front of the high school. Crowds also filled the hill at Mid Town Road to cheer on bikers.
