Carly Anderson on her way to the win at Tsali Xterra

2016 XTERRA Tsali - Tsali Trails, Bryson City, NC - 6-26-16

The water was warm, the trails were dry and air temperature was perfect for this popular off road triathlon.  Racers hit the water at 8am sharp and after the half mile swim they next took off for the hills literally, as the first quarter mile of the run is a steep up hill trail that leads to the "right loop" at Tsali.  After the invigerating run the racers finally faced the 11 mile "left loop" whick lead to the fast finish down county line road.

Congrats to all of the finishers and the top finisher was Dwyane Dixon while Carly Anderson took the top women's spot.  Many thanks to all of the sponsors, the Nantahala Area Sorba club and the Swain County EMS .

Phil Canning on his way to a 12 hour solo finish at Tsali

2016 12 Hours of Tsali - Tsali Trails - Bryson City, NC 6-25-16

The race started at 9am with an increased turnout from last year and great conditions on the course and the weather was awesome, ok a little hot at times but awesome.  This year there were a few firsts, the nine mile "Mouse Loop" was used for the race while the "Right Loop" had always been the trail used in the past.  Also instead of a running start the riders were treated to a rolling start into the trails which seemed to work well for this trail system.

The top 12 Hour solo racer was Jeff Clayton with 15 laps and top female was Sonja Hurt.  The fastest team was Sycamore Cycles with 20 laps and the fastest lap of the day was set by Tristan Cowie with a 31.84 time.  John Hoover was the 3 hour solo winner and Barry Lucas was the 6 hour solo champ. Many thanks to the sponsors especially Bryson City Bicycles who provided thousands of dollars in prizes to the podium!

Cat 2's celebrate at Dauset SERC / GSC

2016 Specialized South Eastern Regional Championship series #7 / Georgia State Championship #5  - Dauset Trails - Jackson, GA 6-19-16. 

Wow what a switch in the weather, on Friday the temperature was 101 degrees and within 20 minutes it dropped to 80 and stayed that way the whole weekend, a great present for father's day!  The trails at Dauset are always awesome and this weekend was no exception as the 7 mile loop selected for the race was fast and flowing.

The top male racer on the day was Chris Lessing and top female was Kayley Burdine, Dustin Greer and Kayley Burdine continue to hold the yellow leaders jersey for each of their classes.  Many thanks to all of the sponsors like Protano Law that supports the $50 holeshot awards which was won by Jim Macpherson in the Cat 1 50+ group.  Also thanks to the Dauset trail crew for treating our sport with so much hospitality!  Also thanks to the James Dean family for providing the free pasta dinner for the riders on Saturday night.

Erik Nielson pushing hard at Clemson SERC

2016 Specialized South Eastern Regional Championship series #5 - Issaqueena Experimental Forest Trails - Clemson, SC 5-15-16. 

The trails were awesome after Thursdays rains and the cool and sunshine that followed.  A good turnout of kids hit the trail first which featured a 1/4 mile climb that the kids don't often see followed by a fast downhill road finish.  At 9:30 the yellow hit the big course which is also filled with lot's of climbs and rewards the riders with a fast downhill singletrack finish after 6.5 miles. By the white wave the temperatures had warmed up nicely and provided a perfect ending to a perfect race day.

Kyle Ellis took the men's pro/elite class and Jennifer Nielson won the women's cat 1 class.  Dustin Greer continues to hold the Leaders jersey in the men's and Kayley Burdine has a firm hold on the women's leader jersey at the halfway point in the series..   Many thanks to all of the sponsors including Specialized, South Paw cycles and the city of Clemson.

Pro Elite's ready for action at the BUMP / SERC

2016 Specialized South Eastern Regional Championship series #6 / BUMP N Grind  - Oak Mountain Trails - Birmingham, AL 6-3/4-16

Despite a threat of wet weather the skies held off and it was a great weekend of racing at the annual Bump N Grind event.  This year marked the return of the popular event to the SERC series and also featured two special downhill events on Saturday, a Super D featuring the Blood rock section and an Air D featuring flowing trails and several jumps.  Saturday's activities also included an off road unicycle race that was amazing to watch.  Omar Fraiser was the winner of both the Super D and Air D and Duco Van Der Beek was the unicycle fast man.

Sunday, the trails were a little on the slick side early on due to a short rain overnight but it dried up and presented near perfect conditions for the racers on this very popular trail system.  The BUMP club as always does a super job at prepping the trails and getting ready for the race, they had tons of volunteers and all were very helpful, many thanks!  Raymond Hall from Oklahoma was the fastest man on the day on his way to winning the 40-49 cat 1 class and Kayley Burdine (finally racing in her home state) was again the clear winner in the women's top field.  Many thanks to all of the sponsors, volunteers and racers that made the event a success!
