James Farr pulls the holeshot at Altoona Creek GSC

2017 Georgia State Championship series #4 - Altoona Creek Trails, Acworth, Ga

The series made it's first stop ever at this North Atlanta area trail system and from all accounts it was a hit. With many trails to choose from the race loop utilized a 7.5 section that had a wide start area, lot's of fun single track and just enough climbing to get the heart rate up. Many thanks to the volunteers at SORBA West Georgia for having the course in good shape and for helping during the event.

Saturday the race action was on a special short 1.5 mile short track loop which was a bonus point race for the GSC racers, the first wave to leave was the advanced yellow wave racers and they definately put on a show and it was Dustin White who took a narrow win in that group. The white wave saw a new leader every lap it seemed and it was Ben Hill who claimed the victory.

Sunday contained a lot of close racing as well and Shawn Smith walked away with bragging rights as the fastest male rider of the day while Lorretta Simpson was the top female.

Juniors take on Oak Mountain

2017 Specialized South Eastern Regional Championship series #6 / Bump N Grind 23 / Oak Mountain State Park Trails - Birmingham, Al

For the second year in a row the Bump N Grind classic has combined with the SERC series and the partenership is proving to be a success with big turnouts in the junior and kids races especially. This year the weather was a factor for many of the racers but luckly not the first wave of racers that hit the 9 and 5 mile loops that were used during the 9am wave, their conditions were perfect, no mud and overcast. The 11am wave was another story as these racers faced either a 21 mile or a 29 mile option and the rain started just as the riders were leaving the line, needless to say they didn't look the same when they returned from the trail as the skies opened up and made for wet but not muddy conditions.

Taking the men's pro class win was Ryan Woodall and Joseyln Guiterrez was the winner of the women's top spot. Many thanks to the Bump organization and to all of the fine sponsors of the event and series.
