Cat 2's celebrate at Dauset SERC / GSC

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.

Erik Nielson pushing hard at Clemson SERC

2016 Specialized South Eastern Regional Championship series #5 - Issaqueena Experimental Forest Trails - Clemson, SC 5-15-16. 

The trails were awesome after Thursdays rains and the cool and sunshine that followed.  A good turnout of kids hit the trail first which featured a 1/4 mile climb that the kids don't often see followed by a fast downhill road finish.  At 9:30 the yellow hit the big course which is also filled with lot's of climbs and rewards the riders with a fast downhill singletrack finish after 6.5 miles. By the white wave the temperatures had warmed up nicely and provided a perfect ending to a perfect race day.

Kyle Ellis took the men's pro/elite class and Jennifer Nielson won the women's cat 1 class.  Dustin Greer continues to hold the Leaders jersey in the men's and Kayley Burdine has a firm hold on the women's leader jersey at the halfway point in the series..   Many thanks to all of the sponsors including Specialized, South Paw cycles and the city of Clemson.

Pro Elite's ready for action at the BUMP / SERC

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!

Perfect day at Clemson Xterra

2016 XTERRA Clemson - Issaqueena Expertimental Forest, Clemson, SC - 5-14-16

A chilly start to the day but it warmed up as fast as the sun came up and lead to absolute perfection on the water and on the trails.  Wetsuits were ruled out as the water temperature was just above the 78 degree mark as the racers hit the water at 8am for the 1K swim.  The bike trails were next and the riders faced an eleven mile journey through the Issaqueena forest and then it was on to the short but very demanding off road run that was full of ups, downs, twists and turns.

Congrats to all of the finishers and the top finisher was Dwyane Dixon while Carly Anderson took the top women's spot.  Many thanks to all of the sponsors and to the City of Clemson, the Pickens County EMS and South Paw Cycles of Clemson.

Yaro Middaugh crossed the line 2nd overall at Ft Yargo Xterra

2016 XTERRA Ft Yargo - Ft Yargo State Park, Winder, Ga - 4-30-16

 Shimmering lake, mild temperatures and great trail conditions make for a super triathlon event and that is what was had at Ft Yargo this past weekend.  The 8am start was chocked full of eager racers hitting the water for the half mile swim as Tim Newberg was the first one out of the water while it was Joshua Schafer leading the next leg of the mountain bikes. but it was AJ Patrillo who put it all together and came out the overall winner of the event.  Carly Anderson was the top female on the day with a very respectable 15th overall.

Ryan Marsh was the winner of the Xterra wetsuit due to his buoy bowling skills.  Many thanks to the sponsors, the park management and to the trail volunteers for making the event another success.
