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.

Alafia Classic Red vs Blue

2017 Alafia Classic - FLE #6 - 5-13-17- Alafia River State Park Trails - Lithia, Fl

Although the trails were on the dry side the overall conditions were very good for the annual 6 hour race at Alafia, there were two courses used, a "blue" easy course and a "red" more difficulty course, the former was 6 miles in length and the latter was 7 miles.  Thanks to the Swamp Club and the Friends of Alafia the trails were clear and as fast as they could be considering and looks like they have some new trails coming in the near future.

In the race action it was Julio Gomez and Melinda Mosser taking the 3 hour class wins which ran on the blue course.  Mike Foxwell and Sara Zaki won the 6 hour solo red course classes while Mike Brennan and Ashlee Applewhite were the blue course winners.  J. Da valle was the 45+ winner and Robert Duncanson was the fastest Clydesdale of the day.  In the team competition Spark Fitness / AJ's were the open class winners and LeRoy's bike works won the Co-Ed class.  In the amateur class Team Boris won the red course challenge and "just a little dirty offroad" was the blue course champs.  Many thanks to all of the sponsors and park support.

McCarty & Hidalgo battle continues at Lakeland FSC

2017 Specialized Florida State Championship series #7 - Loyce Harpe Park Trails - Lakeland, Fl

This was a weekend that makes all Florida resisdents proud, here we are in the middle of November and the temps were in the low 70's and sun was shinning bright. Weather aside the trails were in great shape and the competition was heavy in all classes, a long half mile sprint before the first single track and then another half mile run on the road to the finish that gave the riders plenty of chances to execute there race plans on the 6.4 mile course. This year the 2nd finger was added to the loop and it provided an added technical challenge to the course and an opportunity for some to take an unintented dip in the lake as the trail is known for it's narrow lanes right next to the water.

There a number of new winners this week and the most notable was Luis Lopez (Honduran National champion) who took a strong win over series Elite rivals Daniel Hidalgo and Bob McCarty. Daniel did hold on to the leaders jersey and now has a six point lead heading into the final in Ocala. Alaina Casioppo continued her hot streak and took the win (now three in a row) over a competitive women's cat 1 field but we will have to wait for the outcome of the make up race at Hialeah to see who will wear the women's leaders jersey going into the final.

Anthony Swilley drove home with the Protano Law $50 holeshot award in the cat 1 50+ B class and the team championship is a close points race with only two points separating the top two teams, PFN Speedlab 1 has the lead.

Many thanks to Bent's Cycling and fitness for providing the prizes for the event and congratulations to all of the racers.

Tim Zimmerman topped the solo's at Amelia

2017 Amelia 30/60 mile trail fund raiser - Amelia Earheart Park - Hialeah, Fl

The conditions were prime for this annual endurance race at Amelia Earhart park, a rain the night before always seems to make the course better and that it did as the course got faster and faster with each passing wheel on the trail.  The Amelia Trail Crew set up a 6 mile relatively tame course for the endurance racers and worked perfectly with fast lap times in the low twenties there was always a lot of action on the trail and in the pits.

Action on the track left Tim Zimmerman standing on top of the podium for the 60 mile male open class and Beata Wronska was the top female in the 60 mile class and now has a commanding lead in the Florida Endurance series as a result.  The winners of the 3 Hour solo classes were Carolyn Maddox and Samuel Meja, in the two person open class it was Damian Serrania and Jose Luis Garcel, the 2 person co-ed team winners were Adam Cohen and Lauren Roswell.  Many thanks to all of the sponsors for supporting the event and to all of the riders that helped with keep the trails at Amelia moving forward.
