Bart Minter sails through the finish at Macon GSC

2016 Georgia State Championship #2 - Thomson Trails - Macon, GA 4-23/24-16. 

The weather was picture perfect for the annual double header at the LH Thomson factory trails in Macon.  Saturday the all important time trial lifted off at 3pm with Mose Howard posting a 19:04 min lap on the shortened 4.5 mile course while Stephanie Wilmert topped the women's side.  Sunday the temps started at around sixty and ended up around 75 degrees with lots of sunshine plus a Friday rain had the trail conditions just right.

The cross country action kicked off with the kids at 8:30am and the racing was close in nearly all the classes.  In the yellow wave it was Mose Howard again battling for the overall with Chris Lessing and Mose put the hammer down on the last lap and pulled away for the 40-49 cat 1 win while Lessing won the 19-39 cat 1's.  Kayley Burdine was once again victorious in the Women's cat 1 field and she remains unbeaten so far in the SERC and GSC series, it is time for a bounty?

Many thanks to all of the sponsors especially LH Thomson, also thanks to the OMBA club for all of their hard work with the trails and setting up the event and thanks to Monty Marshal for bringing out the backwards bicycle for a club fund raiser, that was entertaining!
