Junior 1/2's storm to the first turn in Alachua

2016 Specialized Florida State Championship series #4 - 10-16-16 - San Felasco Trails - Alachua, Fl

A touch of fall was in the air for the fourth round of the series in Alachua even though this was supposed to be the fifth round but of course Hurricane Matthew changed all of that.  The new fifth round will be at Fernandina Beach and we have confirmation the trails are in good shape thanks to volunteers from the area.  The kids race course was lengthened this year and included a good climb in the middle and it provided for some added challenges for the young racers.  The adult course was just a shade over 7 miles and was in great shape due to the volunteer base and the fact that there was just the right amount of rain on Saturday afternoon to really tighten up the trail.

In the men's elite class there was an epic battle in the lead group for most of the race and in a very close finish it was Bob McCarty coming out with the win and extending his points lead.  In the women's top class Simone Berger made it two in a row as she won her very competitive class.  The team championship top postions stay the same this week with Team Bent's Galaticus holding a slim 3 point lead nearing the halfway point of the series.

The Protano Law Holeshot $50 award went to Simone Berger.

Many thanks to all of the sponsors and the the friends of San Felasco CSO club!

Lauren Roswell takes on Ft Clinch FSC

2016 Specialized Florida State Championship series #5  - 10-23-16 - Ft Clinch Trails - Fernandina Beach, Fl

After last years "high tide" ride it was refreshing to see dry trails and also refreshing that only two weeks after a major hurricane the park and trail system was up and operational again.  The local Volunteers along with the park management did a heroic job getting it back together with as many as a couple of dozen trees down on the seven mile loop.  Almost forgot to mention the weather was awesome, the first real cold front of the year rolled in and had temperatures in the 50's overnight and a comfortable mid sixties by race time, this really is the best time of year for Florida!

The elite men's class was again a barn burner and the series produced another new winner with Allison Anjos this time on top.  In the women's top class it was Simone Berger taking her third in a row on what many consider to be the most "roadie like" course on the circuit, Simone has proven so far to be able to handle the hilly courses, the technical courses and now the fastest courses.  The team championship top postion is again the same this week with Team Bent's Galaticus at the halfway point of the series.

The Protano Law Holeshot $50 award went to Gary Chambers.

Many thanks to all of the fine sponsors!

Jennifer Moos grabed the holeshot money at Markham

2017 Specialized Florida State Championship series #4 / Coconut Cup #1 - Markham Park - Sunrise, Fl

The midway point in the FSC series also marked the opening round of the Coconut Cup in South Florida, the weather was near perfect and the trail conditions were awesome. It is amazing to think how bad the park had suffered through the hurricane and all of the dedicated folks that put in there volunteer time to get the trails back up and running, hats off to all that helped! The weekend started off with a Coconut Cup time trial on Saturday which sets the stage for the upcoming series and provides ever important bonus points for the series, it was Doug Deweese narrowly taking the overall win while Kelly Lalima held the top spot amoungst the female athletes.

Sunday saw an even more perfect day as the winds died down and again the trail was in great shape with lot's of extra traction for the racers to build their speed on. Lot's of close races in many of the classes as racers battled for both series points and postions, top male rider on the day was Daniel Hidalgo who now sits only one point out of the leaders jersey and Carolyn Maddox commanded the women's top class win another win and secured her jersey for at least the next round. Jennifer Moos won the Protano Law $50 holeshot award in the women's expert class and team Bent's Dirt Dominators holds a 3 point lead in the team competition. Next race for the FSC is Alachua, Fl on Nov 5th.

Ryan Johns on his way to a podium at Snow Hill

2017 Specialized Florida State Championship series #6 / Coconut Cup #2 - Snow Hill Trails - Geneva, Fl

A little cold front blew in just in time the Snow Hill double header and made the race conditions near perfect (could have used a little more rain). This event was of course not on the original schedule but due to hurricane Irma it replaced the Alva event and turned out to be a big hit with the riders. The 6.8 mile loop featured lots of flowing single track and plenty of passing lanes on the double track that was woven into the race course. The kids race had a big turnout for this round and included lots of new faces to series, the half mile kids loop also provided a long start straight followed by single track that lead to the finish area. Many thanks to SORBA Orlando for getting the trails ready and assisting with event!

In the elite class it was another duel for the leaders jersey and this week it was Daniel Hidalgo taking another win and extending his lead by four points over Bob McCarty with two races to go. Alaina Casioppo took her second win in a row on her home town trail and has established a firm hold on the leaders jersey. Tim Zimmerman took the $50 Protano Law holeshot award in the 40-49 cat 1 class and we have a new leader in the team championship with PFN Speedlab 1 holding a one point advantage in the FSC series.

Kayley Burdine powers on to another SERC win

2016 Specialized South Eastern Regional Championship series #8 - Desoto State Park Trails - Ft Payne, Al 7-10-16

 Even after a torrential downpour on Saturday night, the course at Desoto park was ready to race the next morning, a little slick but not the mud fest one would expect.  The rocky terrain make for some very challenging racing and was perhaps the most techical course so far this season. 

Kyle Ellis took the win the men's pro class while Kayley Burdine again showed dominated the women's cat 1 category.   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 Pete Edmonson in the Cat 1 19-39 group.  Also thanks to the Ft Payne Cycling Club trail crew and to the park management for making us feel at home
