2015 Specialized Bicycles Florida State Championship series #7 - Loyce Harpe Trails - Lakeland, Fl 11-13/14-15.
Another awesome day in Florida for the seventh round of the series, the weather backed off a few degrees for the weekend and trail conditions were in great shape as well for the double header. On Saturday a bigger than expected turnout in the Short Track bonus round had over fifty racers in each white and yellow wave start and the competition was heavy as well with a number of sprint finishes all through the fields. Allison Anjos came out on top of the yellow wave in a close race with Doug Deweese and Alex Meucci, while Shelly Allen was the top female.
On Sunday the action started with the Torque Group kids series as the kids hammered out laps on the same course as previous days short track race, then at 9:30 the yellow wave started as the Elite racers hit the 7 mile trail first. At the end it was Alex Meucci taking a very close win in his appearance of the series over Doug Deweese. In the women's top class it was Madison McDaniel taking the win.
Bent's Cycling & Fitness of Lakeland was the round sponsor of the event and had thousands of dollars worth of prizes for the athletes plus every top five racer in all classes recieved a special FSC podium T-shirt, many thanks to BENT'S.
Team Bent's Sweet Heat holds a slim 2 point lead in the Team championship points race with 857 points.

2015 Specialized Bicycles Florida State Championship series #6 - Haile's Trails - Newberry, Fl 10-31 / 11-1-15.
The series returned to the famous Newberry limestone quarries for the sixth round of the FSC and the trails were in super shape and the weather was not too bad either. On Saturday nearly 350 riders showed up to pre-ride the 7 mile course that is only opened up twice a year. The course has been regular stop for the series for most of the series twenty plus years history. It is reminecent of the old Hardrock and Razorback courses of the past and is chocked full of steep climbs and decents. The racing started on Saturday with Team Time Trial bonus race and it was the Z-boyz / Firstplaceracing.com team coming out with the fastest time (almost 2 minutes faster than the second place team) and maximum points.
Sunday's action started early at 8:30am with the Torque Group kids series hitting the 'haunted house loop" as nearly 30 kids took part in the spooky competition. By 9:30 the yellow wave was off and running beginning with the men's Elite class and by the halfway point Doug Deweese had firm control and never let off until the finish. The tough climbs and decents busted up most of the classes early and there were numerous standings changes as a result. Madison McDaniel took her fifth win of the series over multi and defending FSC champion.
Leroy's Bike Works of Lakeland was the round sponsor of the event and had thousands of dollars worth of gift certificates and a bunch of pretty salty racers making their way to the podium, three cheers for Leroy's!
Team Bent's Sweet Heat continues to lead the Team championship points race with 725 points.
