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.

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!
