Andre Wedderburn gives it a thumbs up at Lakeland FSC

2016 Specialized Florida State Championship series #7 - 11-12/13-16 - Loyce Harpe Park Trails - Lakeland, Fl

Another great weekend of weather for the Lakeland round of the FSC series sponsored by Bent's Cycling & Fitness!  It was also another double header as the short track bonus race on Saturday saw 100 racers hit the special 1 mile short loop for valuable bonus points in the series.  The yellow wave short track race was the biggest of the day with right around 60 riders doing 15 minutes plus one lap on the fast course that included a short bit of paved road as well, in a very close finish it was Allison Anjos taking the win.  The white wave short track start saw about 35 racers hit the same course but this time for only 10 minutes plus one lap and this time it was Carlos Pacheco with the claim to the wave win and maximum bonus points.

Sundays cross country race started off with of course the kids race at 8:30am and they ran the same course as the previous days short track then at 9:30am the yellow wave advanced riders hit the big course which measured 6.5 miles and featured some tricky sections including one called "Sneaky Snake" a trail we had never used before in an FSC race.  The course produced some close racing as we have come to expect in this years series and it was Allison Anjos taking his second overall Elite win in the Men's class while Madison McDaniel returned to the series and chalked up another.  Bob McCarty has a strong lead in the chase for the men's Elite jersey while on the women's side we have a new jersey holder in Simone Berger.

The Protano Law Holeshot $50 award went to Tim Zimmerman in the 40-49 expert class.

Many thanks to all of the fine sponsors especially Bent's Cycling & Fitness of Lakeland and by the way Team Bent's Galacticus is still leading the team championship standings!
