UTICA, N.Y. -- A post-Boilermaker press conference was held Monday at the race's headquarters on Court Street.

Boilermaker officials including president Mark Donovan and race director, Jim Stasaitis were there to offer the media a summary of the international race.

Apart from the delay at the beginning of the race, officials say the race went off without an issue.

They say around 150 individuals from the race were treated, which they say is lower than previous years. Race times were also much lower as a result of the beautiful weather.

Donovan says that preparations for next year begin almost immediately.

"We started at 8am this morning I kid you not, we met at 8 a.m. this morning, there are continuous improvements we change everything. So, that continuous improvement project started this morning and we will continue for the next twelve months,” he said.

Race officials say the flyover had such a positive review that they will try and repeat it for next year's race.
