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!

Perfect day at Clemson Xterra

2016 XTERRA Clemson - Issaqueena Expertimental Forest, Clemson, SC - 5-14-16

A chilly start to the day but it warmed up as fast as the sun came up and lead to absolute perfection on the water and on the trails.  Wetsuits were ruled out as the water temperature was just above the 78 degree mark as the racers hit the water at 8am for the 1K swim.  The bike trails were next and the riders faced an eleven mile journey through the Issaqueena forest and then it was on to the short but very demanding off road run that was full of ups, downs, twists and turns.

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 and to the City of Clemson, the Pickens County EMS and South Paw Cycles of Clemson.

Yaro Middaugh crossed the line 2nd overall at Ft Yargo Xterra

2016 XTERRA Ft Yargo - Ft Yargo State Park, Winder, Ga - 4-30-16

 Shimmering lake, mild temperatures and great trail conditions make for a super triathlon event and that is what was had at Ft Yargo this past weekend.  The 8am start was chocked full of eager racers hitting the water for the half mile swim as Tim Newberg was the first one out of the water while it was Joshua Schafer leading the next leg of the mountain bikes. but it was AJ Patrillo who put it all together and came out the overall winner of the event.  Carly Anderson was the top female on the day with a very respectable 15th overall.

Ryan Marsh was the winner of the Xterra wetsuit due to his buoy bowling skills.  Many thanks to the sponsors, the park management and to the trail volunteers for making the event another success.

Kayley Burdine carries the leaders jersey at Tsali SERC

2016 Specialized South Eastern Regional Championship series #2 - Tsali Trails - Bryson City, NC 4-2/3-16

Perfect racing weather for the riders at the second stop on the circuit, sunny skies, dry trail and temp's in the sixties!  The weekend started with an individual Time Trilal on Saturday that saw Robert Marion hit the fast time with a 20:13 on the Mouse loop and Jennifer Howard topped the females.  Sunday the day started out cold with the thermomitor reading in the thirties but it soon warmed up to a toastie 58 by race time. 


The men's pro field was a knock down drag out affair between Ryan Woodall, Tristan Cowie and Robert Marion and it came down to the final sprint with Marion getting the edge at the line.  In the women's top class it was Mobile's Kayley Burdine again taking the win (two in a row now) as she held on to the Super Sport leaders jersey as we head into Conyers next weekend.  The famous Tsali course was at it's prime with dry fast conditions over the 15 & 13 mile loops that utilize the right and left loops and provide plenty of climbing and fast single track thanks to the Nantahala Area Sorba club for providing the volunteers and as always keeping the trails in great shape.

Many thanks to the sponsors and special thanks to Smoky Mountain Bikes out of Franklin, NC for suppliing all of the great prizes for the medalists.
