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!

Jordan Swingle blows by on his way to a win at Quiet Waters

2018 Coconut Cup South Florida Championship series #5 - Quiet Waters Trails - Deerfield Beach, Fl

Ok it was a little windy but other than that what a great day to race in South Florida. This was our second year back at QW since the devistating hurricane that hit the park over a decade ago and each time it gets better, last year as many remember it was 40 degrees and raining but not this time sunny with temps in the 70's. The trail crew laid out a 7 mile loop for the racers that may not have much elevation but has lots to keep the riders on their toes in what has to be one of the most effecient uses of property as far as trails are concerned.

Jordan Swingle took the top honors on the day in the men's elite class and Kelly Lalima logged the fasted times of the women. Many thanks again to all of sponsors and to the QW trail crew for helping with set up and marshaling the race. Next Coconut Cup race is at Dyer Park in West palm on 2-24/25-18.
