Ryan Woodall handles the hills of Hailes

2017 Hailes Cyclocross 10-14/15-17 - Hailes Trails - Newberry, Fl

This is October isn't it? What is with the weather, it was a hot and muggy one at the second annual Hailes CX but the racers got treated to a super course and great competition. The Ryan Woodall designed layout was even better than the first year as it seems Ryan was able to find some more hills and had the route groomed to perfection by race time. There was plenty of excitement during the races like Kelly Edwards dropping his chain and taking a considerable amount of time to get going again but still coming back for the win in the Masters class and Bryce Kovi clearing the wooden carry overs without dismounting but at the end of the day it was Ryan Woodall taking the top spot in the men's Cat 1/2 while Darla Woodall had the women's field covered in the W 1/2/3. Many thanks to all of the sponsors that made the event a success!

Victor Tarin stares down a win at San Felasco FSC

2017 Specialized Florida State Championship series #5 - San Felasco Trails - Alachua, Fl

What a great weekend, the weather was awesome at the fifth round of the FSC at the very popular San Felasco trails, riders were rewarded with great trail conditions as well, ok maybe a little dry other than that a perfect day for mountain biking in Florida. The 7.2 mile race loop features lots of rolling hills and canopied trails wind through the woods and leave lots of room for passing as well making it one of the best "racing" trails on the circuit. Even the kids course was a epic challenge with the 1 mile loop that included some climbing and plenty of single track action. Many thanks to the Friends of San Felasco C.S.O. for building and maintaining the trail system.

The weekend also saw some new winners in the men's elite class it was Charlie Mullins taking a close win over new points leader and leaders jersey holder Daniel Hidalgo. While in the womens top class Alaina Casioppo took her first win along with the women's leaders jersey. The Protano Law $50 holeshot award went to Adam Cohen in the 19-39 expert class and there is now a tie in the team championship points standings with Bent's Cycling Dirt Dominators and PFN Speedlab sharing the lead with 624 points each.

The series now heads to Geneva, Fl and reunites with the Coconut Cup series at the new FSC location of Snow Hill Trails.

Eric Cohen at Snowhill FLE

1-21-2018 - FLE #2 - Battle of Snow Hill, Snow Hill Trails - Geneva, Fl

The 3rd annual Snow Hill event was met with great weather this time around (always a hit or miss situation this time of year) as temperatures were in the 60's & 70's for most of the day, The Trail was very simular to last year's event and incorporated the riverside trails that had been flooded since the hurricane in September so that added a bit of spice to the reciepe on the 8 mile loop. Last year's 3 hour winner Mose Howard set the fastest lap of the day with a 33:57 and took the 3 hour win home again this year while Jennifer Howard walked away with the women's 3 hour honors. Robert Duncanson was the Clydesdale 3 hour winner while Tyler Selig won the Juniors category. The 6 hour solo class Adam Cohen in his first ever 6 hour event won convincingly and Sheila Gardner was the top female, Philip Todd and Rusty High were the amatuer and 45+ 6 hour winners respectively. The team competition was won by Wess Irons and Tyler Junkins. The next FLE race will be in Hialeah, Fl on 2-4-18.

Jessica Nankman on her way to winning the 12 hour Female solo title

2-17-2018 - FLE #4 - 12 Hours of Santos, Vortex Trails - Ocala, Fl

It doesn't get any better than this anywhere in the country, a perfect weather weekend for the 10th annual 12 hours of Santos (although it's roots go back to 1996 at the 12 hours of Hardrock). The day started off with a mass Leman's style start at 10am and the racers hit the vortex trails for a 6 mile parade lap before heading out to complete their first full 8 mile lap. The layout this year was very challenging as the racers had to navigate the "red" trails first and then got a break for the last 5 miles or so by riding the "blue" trails before the finish.

The racing action was very competitive as always with Ben Kelly winning the 3 hour male solo class and Caroyln Maddox doing the same in the Female 3 hour. While Evan Evans took the 3 hour Clydesdale and Ian Kelbert won the Juniors 3 hour. The six hour men's shootout was taken by multi time motorcycle champion Charlie Mullins and Amy Horstmeyer took home the Female class win. Amatuer 6 hour winner was Mikhael Ponso and 45+ male winner was Ivar Kozeja. In the long distance categories Gear Racing won the "Over 140 year" class and Ant and beanstocks won the "Under 140 year" team classes. Brick City Super Speedy Sasquaches took the Sport team titile and amassed 19 laps in the process. Team My momma thinks I am fast was the proud winner of the Co-Ed division. In the 2 person class it was team Down to Ride consisting of Eric Post and Sterling Ferris while amatuer 12 hour solo winner Joe Warton walked away with the win but the big winners of the Solo classes were Jessica Nankman with 14 laps to her claim and of course multi time winner of this event Bob McCarty with the solo Men's win and 18 laps.

Many thanks to all of the riders, sponsors and volunteers that made it happen and thanks to Club OMBA for building and maintaing this great trail system.

Ayala & Danish battle for the 30 mile win at Ameila

2-4-2018 - FLE #3 - Amelia 30/60 mile, Amelia Earhart Trails - Hialeah, Fl

A perfect day with partly cloudy and mild temperatures greeted the racers at one of South Florida's most popular trails and the course conditions were in tip top shape thanks to mother nature (a rain the day before) and the amazing Amelia trail crew. The event started at 9am with a split start between the 30 milers and the 60's and early on the leaders formed a tight pack with Marcos Rodriguez coming in the fastest on lap one. The pace didn't let up as the 60 leaders began to merge into the action making for some great racing all day. The course was set up for 6 miles per lap making he math easy as all the 30 milers had to do was focus on 5 laps and the hard core 60's on 10.

Mike Danish was the top 30 miler and Megan Duncanson was the top 30 mile female while Steve Larue was the fastest clydesdale and Kaue King found himself the winner of the junior 30 mile class. Damian Serrania and Jose Luis Garcel topped the two person open teams while the two person co-ed team was won by Darren and Sandra Venditti. The 60 mile class was headed up by Jordan Swingle in the open class and Maricio Andino topped the amateur class. Jorge Francisco was the winner in the 45+ group and Tara Pizza was the female 60 mile solo winner. Many thanks to all the sponsors and again to the Amelia trail crew!
