2015 South Eastern Regional Championship series #1 - Hailes Trails - Newberry, Fl 3-22-15.
Bryce Kovi & Jack Brown featured in the photo.
What an exciting start to the SERC series at the famed Haile's trails in Newberry Florida. The course is located in a old limestone quarry and is one of the most demanding in the state with it's punchy climbs and technical single track and because it is an old quarry it is virtually sand free and instead hardpack. This year the 5.8 mile course had and extra mile section of motorcycle trails that featured the longest downhill on the course along with some very challenging climbs.
The Competition was red hot in most classes and some of the most noteables were in the men's pro class as the battle between Lewis Gaffney and Bradford Perley (men's pro / elite class) which went down to the wire with Perley getting the nod. In the Women's pro / expert class it was Florida's Shelly Allen's day as the multi time champ took the win with ease. Also notable was the ride by Bob McCarty in the 40-49 cat 1 class that although started two minutes back not only won his class but the overall as he passed all of the pro's in the process. In the same 40-49 class there was another magical ride by Mose Howard as he broke his chain at the start and spent several minutes fixing it before remounting the race and worked his way back up to second behing McCarty by the end of the event.
Many thanks to all of the series sponsors and especially to the round sponsors Super Cool Bike Shop and Leroy's Bike Works who provided over $2000 in prizes to the medalists. Next week the series moves to Conyers Georiga for the second round of both the SERC and GSC series.

2015 Georia State Championship series #1 - LH Thomson Trails - Macon, GA 3-14&15-15.
What a switch from last years GSC opener which was wet and cold, this year the weather was awesome for both days of the 2015 series double header. The bonus round time trial started things off on Saturday on a 4 mile short course as each rider faced the trail and the clock for valuable bonus points and at the end it was Mose Howard of Florida taking the top time with a blazing 18:57 time. Sunday with temperatures in the mid 70's and sun shinning the cross country riders hit the trail (this time a bit longer at 6 miles) which included a spiral loop at the end of each lap that made riding and spectating very interesting. At the end of the day the top XC rider was again Mose Howard and top female was Trudy Franzel.
Many thanks to club OMBA for hosting the event and working so hard on course set up and marshaling also many thanks to the LH Thomson company for allowing the race to be held on their property (yes that LH Thomson, the famous bike component maker).
Next round is in Conyers, GA on March 29th, see you there!
