2015 Specialized Bicycles Florida State Championship series #8 / Coconut Cup #2 - Caloosahatchee Park - Alva, Fl 11-22-15.
Ok El Nino finally caught up with the series, we have had pretty good luck dodging the wet weather for the most part (sans the white wave) but there was no way around this one. Fortunately the trail conditions were awesome on Saturday for those that pre-rode the course but then overnight the heavy stuff came and turned the course into a quagmire. The trail was even shortened to make it easier to navigate but the slick clay proved to be a tough challenge for everyone involved. Nice thing was the sun came out for the awards and the drive home, this one was a true mudder!
Many thanks to the Mud cutters club for having the trail in super shape despite the very wet summer. In the racing action there were a lot of shake ups as is usually the case with mud races but Doug Deweese proved why he still deserves the FSC leaders jersey as he logged another win in the men's elite class. Shelly Allen came back strong and won the women's field and holds a slim lead in the women's cat 1 class after the weekend.
Team Bent's Sweet Heat holds a 4 point lead with only the make up race and the final at Santos hanging in the balance.
Don't forget the make up race at Hialeah can count towards valuable points and the last race in Ocala can't be dropped.

2015 Specialized Bicycles Florida State Championship series #7 - Loyce Harpe Trails - Lakeland, Fl 11-13/14-15.
Another awesome day in Florida for the seventh round of the series, the weather backed off a few degrees for the weekend and trail conditions were in great shape as well for the double header. On Saturday a bigger than expected turnout in the Short Track bonus round had over fifty racers in each white and yellow wave start and the competition was heavy as well with a number of sprint finishes all through the fields. Allison Anjos came out on top of the yellow wave in a close race with Doug Deweese and Alex Meucci, while Shelly Allen was the top female.
On Sunday the action started with the Torque Group kids series as the kids hammered out laps on the same course as previous days short track race, then at 9:30 the yellow wave started as the Elite racers hit the 7 mile trail first. At the end it was Alex Meucci taking a very close win in his appearance of the series over Doug Deweese. In the women's top class it was Madison McDaniel taking the win.
Bent's Cycling & Fitness of Lakeland was the round sponsor of the event and had thousands of dollars worth of prizes for the athletes plus every top five racer in all classes recieved a special FSC podium T-shirt, many thanks to BENT'S.
Team Bent's Sweet Heat holds a slim 2 point lead in the Team championship points race with 857 points.
