Andy Mills kicked off the CX season with the first win of the weekend

2016 Santos Cyclocross - Santos Trails - Ocala, Fl

The opening round of the Florida Cyclocross season hit the popular Santos trailhead this past weekend with racing action on both Saturday and Sunday.  The event was a double header, meaning two full and separate days of racing, the only differance being the course was reversed on Sunday.  A total of 177 entries filled the Ryan Woodall designed course over the weekend and the layout was met with rave reviews which included two hop over obsticles and two dismount obsticles and miles of blue shimano tape and fence posts.

The top male rider on the weekend was no suprise Ryan Woodall with a win in the Cat 1/2 open men's class and Amy Horstmeyer was the top female both claiming the podium on both days.  Many thanks to all of the sponsors especially Top Gear Bicycles for providing the purse money and volunteers!

Madison McDaniel kicks off the FSC series with a win in Tally

2016 Specialized Florida State Championship series #1 - 9-17/18-16 - Tom Brown Park - Tallahassee, Fl

 The excitement was high and so were the temperatures but the FSC racers pushed on and made the opener a big success.  Although the area was hit with a hurricane only two weeks ago the Sorba Tallahassee club and many other volunteers put their efforts together and got the trails in great shape in record time, many thanks to all involved!  Ok back to the action, the weekend kicked off with the annual FSC Time Trials on Saturday at 3pm and this year the course was the first 4.5 miles of the cross country course which included most of the Cadillac trail and was considered a little faster average speed than last years Magnolia loop.  After all was said and done it was Doug Deweese pulling out the fastest time with a 15:07, while Madison McDaniel topped the very competitive women's field. 

On Sunday the first racers to hit the popular trail system were the Shimano kids racers and true to form the racing was close and exciting, the kids showed lot's of heart and lot's of potential as future bike racers, congrats to all!  At 9:30am the yellow wave hit the 7.5 mile course (that included the famous "Wall" turn, a favorite for the fans) and as the elite racers powered their way through the first lap, a real battle began to form between Doug Deweese and Mike Mace for the lead with Doug unfortunately flatting on the lap and allowing Mike a comfortable win in the end.  In the women's cat 1 class Madison McDaniel showed everyone why came in favored to win the series after a strong showing last year in her rookie year.

As it has been for many many years, HIgher Ground Bicycles was the round sponsor for the event and as always they play the role of a great host for the event plus they provided over $2400 in prizes to the medalists, many thanks to them and to all of the sponsors!

Kevin Smith pounds the pedals at Hailes opener

2017 Specialized Florida State Championship series #1 - Hailes Trails - Newberry, Fl

The series kicked off at Hailes this year for the first time in years as the traditional series opener in Tallahassee had to be rescheduled due to hurricane Irma and that meant the Individual Time Trial was also happening the first weekend of the series. The conditions were pretty good for a September day in Florida with dryer air than normal but temperatures still in the upper eighties and a dry course as well. Saturday saw 135 riders hit the short 4.25 mile course for the series bonus time trial race and it was Bob McCarty coming out on top overall and Carolyn Maddox winning the female 1st place medal.

Sunday the racers hit the 5.25 full loop that included a couple of killer climbs that needed both skill and power to accend. The racing action in the men's elite class was hot with a three way battle for the lead that came down to Doug Deweese getting the nod and the leaders jersey over current champ Bob McCarty and former chap Ryan Wioodall. In the women's top class it was Amy Horstmeyer getting the win although the leaders jersey went to Carolyn Maddox due to her time trail finish.

Ryan Woodall took the Protano Law $50 holeshot award.

The series next stop at Tom Brown park in Tallahassee.

Beata Wronska takes an FLE title

2017 6 Hours of Haile - FLE Final - 5-28-17- Hailes Trails - Newberry, Fl

Well it was the first ever endurance race held at one of the most revered trails in Florida and although a bit on the hot side the trails were in good shape thanks to a mid week rain.  The 5.5 mile course was toned down a bit to accomdate the endurance aspect but it was still a challenge for the racers facing the final race of the new Florida Endurance series.

The start consisted of a motopaced tour around the field area before the riders broke through to the single track and it was Bob McCarty and Shawn Smith leading the way, the two stayed close throughout most of the day although Shawn was riding 3 hour solo and Bob was teamed up with Randy Egues on a relay team which won the open class.  Shawn Smith did take the win in the 3 hour solo class while Cristen Crisci was the top female 3 hour racer.  In the men's 6 hour solo it was Sam Joeckel taking the men's class and the FLE cat 1 title while Alaina Casiopo was the winner in the female 6 hour division and 4th overall.  Frank Alvarez was the winner of the 45+ 6 hour class and Leonardo Coleman and Kelly Lalima took the Co-Ed class win.

FLE series winners were as follows...

Beata Wronska - Women's Champion

Sam Joeckel - Men's Cat 1 Champion

Michael Winters - Men's Cat 2 Champion

David Coleman - Men's Cat 3 Champion

Ted Alber - Men's 45+ Champion

Dustin Greer nailed the pro men's holeshot at Tsali

2017 Specialized South Eastern Regional Championship series #2 / Knobscorcher- Tsali Trails - Bryson City, NC

Tsali was in perfect shape for the weekend's second round of the SERC series, the trail was smoking fast and the dry crisp air made for an athletes dream.The kids races started off the day with temperatures still in the 40's but the kids put on a good show and set the tone for the rest of the day.By the time of the yellow wave start the sun was warming up the land and the pro men's class blasted off up the county line road on their way to a 26 mile hammer fest with Tristen Cowie taking the win.In the women's pro / expert class it was Annie Pharr topping the field.The attendance was up this year partly due to the fact that it was a 15 point bonus round and the new women's and men's leaders jerseys were placed on Josselynn Guiteirrez and Charlie Mullins shoulders as they are now the new points leaders in their respective classes.

Many thanks to all of the sponsors and special thanks to Smoky Mountain Bicycles of Franklin, Nc as they provided the swag for the medalists and also to Truckerco.com, Connex chains and Creative Concepts for providing the holeshot awards.
