Eric Cohen at Snowhill FLE

1-21-2018 - FLE #2 - Battle of Snow Hill, Snow Hill Trails - Geneva, Fl

The 3rd annual Snow Hill event was met with great weather this time around (always a hit or miss situation this time of year) as temperatures were in the 60's & 70's for most of the day, The Trail was very simular to last year's event and incorporated the riverside trails that had been flooded since the hurricane in September so that added a bit of spice to the reciepe on the 8 mile loop. Last year's 3 hour winner Mose Howard set the fastest lap of the day with a 33:57 and took the 3 hour win home again this year while Jennifer Howard walked away with the women's 3 hour honors. Robert Duncanson was the Clydesdale 3 hour winner while Tyler Selig won the Juniors category. The 6 hour solo class Adam Cohen in his first ever 6 hour event won convincingly and Sheila Gardner was the top female, Philip Todd and Rusty High were the amatuer and 45+ 6 hour winners respectively. The team competition was won by Wess Irons and Tyler Junkins. The next FLE race will be in Hialeah, Fl on 2-4-18.

Just another day at the beach for Mike Sauerwine

2018 Coconut Cup South Florida Championship series #4 - Virginia Key Trails - Miami, Fl

The first race back at Virginia Key since hurricane Irma was a pleasent suprise as rumors of the devistation were everywhere but the silver lining was that due to the work of hundreds of volunteers the trails were recovered for the most part and back up and running (or is that riding). The Virginiia Key Mountain Bke Club did an amazing job and put together a 6.2 mile challenging loop for the Coconut Cup racers at fourth round of the series and although the trails were in good shape the weather was another story with temperatures starting in the 40's and eventually warming up to the mid sixties by midday (yes that is very cold for Miami).

The race action was hot however with a very close battle between Bob McCarty and Jordan Swingle for the overall Elite win with McCarty taking it by just a couple of bike lengths at the end. Kelly Lalima was the top female on the day taking the women's cat 2 class win. Many thanks again to the VKMBC and to all of the series sponsors, next CC race is in Deerfield Beach on 1-28-18.
