Ryan Woodall handles the hills of Hailes

2017 Hailes Cyclocross 10-14/15-17 - Hailes Trails - Newberry, Fl

This is October isn't it? What is with the weather, it was a hot and muggy one at the second annual Hailes CX but the racers got treated to a super course and great competition. The Ryan Woodall designed layout was even better than the first year as it seems Ryan was able to find some more hills and had the route groomed to perfection by race time. There was plenty of excitement during the races like Kelly Edwards dropping his chain and taking a considerable amount of time to get going again but still coming back for the win in the Masters class and Bryce Kovi clearing the wooden carry overs without dismounting but at the end of the day it was Ryan Woodall taking the top spot in the men's Cat 1/2 while Darla Woodall had the women's field covered in the W 1/2/3. Many thanks to all of the sponsors that made the event a success!

Mike McQuillin was on a roll at Alafia FSC

2017 Specialized Florida State Championship series #3 - Alafia River State Park - Lithia, Fl

I think summer forgot to look at the calendar, it is October in Florida and it was a hot one at Alafia. Normally the weather is perfect this time of year in Florida, you know, low humidity, mild and sunny, this race felt like mid July but at least it didn't rain and in fact the trails were in great shape (many thanks to all of the nearly 200 volunteers after Irma that helped get Alafia back online). The course was set up with many of the new reroutes in the trails system and was just a little under 7 miles clocking in at 6.8 officially. Fun was the most common word heard throughout the day concerning the track, yes it was fun with lot's of up's and down's and banked turns throughout.

In the racing action there was lot's of new winners this week and that includes the men's Elite class with Daniel Hidalgo taking the win on this day despite dropping his chain on the start and coming from dead last to first in the four lap affair. Also in the women's expert class Alaina Casioppo won her first race of the season. Bob McCarty and Carolyn Maddox will continue to hold on to the leaders jersey's in there respective class however. Mark Singleton took the Protano Law $50 holeshot award this week in the 50+ expert class and Team Bent's Dirt Dominators are on top of the team championship standings with a slim 3 point lead. Many thanks to AJ's Bikes and Boards for handling the round sponsorship and handing out lot's of great prizes to the winners!
