2017 Amelia 30/60 mile trail fund raiser - Amelia Earheart Park - Hialeah, Fl
The conditions were prime for this annual endurance race at Amelia Earhart park, a rain the night before always seems to make the course better and that it did as the course got faster and faster with each passing wheel on the trail.Â The Amelia Trail Crew set up a 6 mile relatively tame course for the endurance racers and worked perfectly with fast lap times in the low twenties there was always a lot of action on the trail and in the pits.
Action on the track left Tim Zimmerman standing on top of the podium for the 60 mile male open class and Beata Wronska was the top female in the 60 mile class and now has a commanding lead in the Florida Endurance series as a result.Â The winners of the 3 Hour solo classes were Carolyn Maddox and Samuel Meja, in the two person open class it was Damian Serrania and Jose Luis Garcel, the 2 person co-ed team winners were Adam Cohen and Lauren Roswell.Â Many thanks to all of the sponsors for supporting the event and to all of the riders that helped with keep the trails at Amelia moving forward.

2017 South Eastern Regional Championship series #1 / Florida Cup - Haile's Trails - Newberry, Fl
The opening shots were fired in the 18th annual SERC series in it's traditional first round location of Haile's trails and It was Ryan Woodall and Amy Horstmeyer taking the wins in the men's and women's pro fields respectively.ÂÂ With the weather and the trails treating the riders well there was only one thing left to determine and that was the finishing order as the many competitive races unfolded.Â The 6 mile course featured a number of steep climbs (no suprise for this course) and some fast downhills as a reward as many consider this to be the most demanding trail in Florida and a perfect host for a regional and Florida Cup state level mountain bike race.
Many thanks to all of the series sponsors and especially to Goodbike bike shop of Gainesville for providing thousands of dollars worth of prizes for the athletes. In each of the classes the top Florida rider was presented with a special Florida Cup trophy and claim to the one day state title for that particular class, congrats to all!ÂÂ The next round of the SERC series is in Bryson City, NC at the famous Tsali Trails.
