2016 Coconut Cup #3 - 12-4-16 - Amelia Earheart Trails - Hialeah, Fl
The series has been on a roll lately with great weather, sunshine, low humidity and great course condtions have been the rule. This weekend the Amelia Trail crew again worked their magic with the trail prep and design and put together a 6.8 mile mountain bike wonder land. The race had added importance since it was also a make up race for the FSC series which wraps up next weekend in Ocala and that meant there would be a lot of FSC racers making the trip down to gain valuable points toward their championship quests.
The race action in the men's elite class was close most of the day but in the end multi time champ Bob McCarty took the overall and in a close points race in both the FSC and the CC series the women's top class was claimed by Simone Berger who also won the holeshot prize.
The Protano Law Holeshot $50 award went to Simone Berger in the women's expert class.
Many thanks to all of the fine sponsors!

2016 Specialized Florida State Championship series #8 / Coconut Cup #2 - 11-20-16 - Caloosahatche Trails - Alva, Fl
Awesome weather again for the combined FSC / CC race series, last year was of course a mudder but not this year if anything it was a little on the dry side and that is ok by us! This course is normally the longest trail on the circuit and this year it was even longer as the local club the Mudcutters added an extra half mile of technical trail to the loop making it a total of 10.5 miles. Many would think this trail would be flat and uneventful since it is located in a relatively flat part of a flat state but those many would be wrong, this course does have it's share of flat sections but they are layed out in a way that makes them fun and fast and then there is other half of the trails that are nothing hills and ridges and very demanding.
Well the race action has been close all year and race eight was right on track with some new and old winners on the day. In the men's elite class the normal train of riders got busted up early for some reason and a three rider group lead by Mike Mace took it all the way to the finish giving Mace his second overall win of the season, meanwhile in the women's group it was Erica Zeboor with a close win over series leader Carolyn Maddox.
The Protano Law Holeshot $50 award went to Troy Zimmerman in the 50+ expert class.
Team Bent's Galacticus is the leader in the team championship standings.
