2014-2015 Coconut Cup South Florida series #6 - Halpatiokee Park - Stuart, FL 2-15-15.
Well the series seemed to fly by and now that it is over we can declare it was a perfect season for weather and competition. For those that remember last year the Stuart race was a mudder but not this year, the 7.5 mile course was a little on the long side but appropriate for the final of the series. Although the trail is not technical nor does it have much in the way of elevation but it is still a fun and fast course that improves every year and as always, no race course is ever easy.
Special thanks go out to Phil Pacini of Mission One Racing and to the Airborne Bicycle club for prepping the course, marking, marshaling, layout and clean up! Also many thanks to all that pitched in to help with announcing and clean up, as the GR team is still a bit short handed.
Tim Zimmerman was the big winner in the top men's category while Josselyn Gutierrez was the top female.
The series awards presentations were held immediately following the days racing and numerous champions were crowned and plenty of food and bench racing. Special awards were handed out to Salvador "Coco" Gonzalez for sportsmanship and most improved rider Damian Sarrania. Congratulations to all.
Next event is 2-21-15 in Ocala, Fl - the 12 Hours of Santos!

2014-2015 Coconut Cup South Florida series #5 - Markham Park - Sunrise, FL 2-1-15.
Perfect South Florida race weekend as the shortened series made it's second to last stop at Markham park. The 6.5 mile loop was challenging as always and thanks to the volunteers with the Markham trail building club and the mountain bike patrol, it was in great shape and safe throughout the race. Special thanks to Carlos Galvis for the course design and for all of the others that pitched in to help make the event another success. Other notables were John Voss, Julian Dasilva and Farmer Brown (honestly there are too many others to name). Allison Anjos took the men's overall win in a talented field and Josselyn Gutierrez was the top female overall.
The next Coconut Cup race will be in Stuart, Florida which will also be the series final and awards ceremony.
