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.

Mike McQuillin was on a roll at Alafia FSC

2017 Specialized Florida State Championship series #3 - Alafia River State Park - Lithia, Fl

I think summer forgot to look at the calendar, it is October in Florida and it was a hot one at Alafia. Normally the weather is perfect this time of year in Florida, you know, low humidity, mild and sunny, this race felt like mid July but at least it didn't rain and in fact the trails were in great shape (many thanks to all of the nearly 200 volunteers after Irma that helped get Alafia back online). The course was set up with many of the new reroutes in the trails system and was just a little under 7 miles clocking in at 6.8 officially. Fun was the most common word heard throughout the day concerning the track, yes it was fun with lot's of up's and down's and banked turns throughout.

In the racing action there was lot's of new winners this week and that includes the men's Elite class with Daniel Hidalgo taking the win on this day despite dropping his chain on the start and coming from dead last to first in the four lap affair. Also in the women's expert class Alaina Casioppo won her first race of the season. Bob McCarty and Carolyn Maddox will continue to hold on to the leaders jersey's in there respective class however. Mark Singleton took the Protano Law $50 holeshot award this week in the 50+ expert class and Team Bent's Dirt Dominators are on top of the team championship standings with a slim 3 point lead. Many thanks to AJ's Bikes and Boards for handling the round sponsorship and handing out lot's of great prizes to the winners!

James Farr pulls the holeshot at Altoona Creek GSC

2017 Georgia State Championship series #4 - Altoona Creek Trails, Acworth, Ga

The series made it's first stop ever at this North Atlanta area trail system and from all accounts it was a hit. With many trails to choose from the race loop utilized a 7.5 section that had a wide start area, lot's of fun single track and just enough climbing to get the heart rate up. Many thanks to the volunteers at SORBA West Georgia for having the course in good shape and for helping during the event.

Saturday the race action was on a special short 1.5 mile short track loop which was a bonus point race for the GSC racers, the first wave to leave was the advanced yellow wave racers and they definately put on a show and it was Dustin White who took a narrow win in that group. The white wave saw a new leader every lap it seemed and it was Ben Hill who claimed the victory.

Sunday contained a lot of close racing as well and Shawn Smith walked away with bragging rights as the fastest male rider of the day while Lorretta Simpson was the top female.

The 19-39 Cat 2's battle for the holeshot at Conyers

2017 Specialized South Eastern Regional Championship series #3 / Georgia State Championship series #2 / GHIP Trails - Conyers, GA

Hard to believe but the weather was awesome at Conyers, there seems to be something about this location everytime the series comes to this famous trail system, normally it is cold and windy and many times wet but not this time!  Temps were cool in the morning then warmed up to a very nice 70 degress by middle of the day and despite a nasty storm that blew through the area earlier in the week the trails were in great shape.  The course was 7 miles in length and included a new single track section along with the big dip section at the end of the loop.

Racing has been competitve this season and this round was no exception, the top pro male racer on the day was the same as last year's winner, Alex Meucci and Madison McDaniel walked away with the win in the women's expert/ pro class.

Many thanks to all of the sponsors and special thanks to C-Town Bicycles of Conyers as they provided the swag for the medalists and also to Truckerco.com, Connex chains and Creative Concepts for providing the holeshot awards. 

The next SERC / GSC race will be in Winder, Ga on April 29 & 30th.
