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

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.
