Perfect day at Clemson Xterra

2016 XTERRA Clemson - Issaqueena Expertimental Forest, Clemson, SC - 5-14-16

A chilly start to the day but it warmed up as fast as the sun came up and lead to absolute perfection on the water and on the trails.  Wetsuits were ruled out as the water temperature was just above the 78 degree mark as the racers hit the water at 8am for the 1K swim.  The bike trails were next and the riders faced an eleven mile journey through the Issaqueena forest and then it was on to the short but very demanding off road run that was full of ups, downs, twists and turns.

Congrats to all of the finishers and the top finisher was Dwyane Dixon while Carly Anderson took the top women's spot.  Many thanks to all of the sponsors and to the City of Clemson, the Pickens County EMS and South Paw Cycles of Clemson.

Erik Nielson pushing hard at Clemson SERC

2016 Specialized South Eastern Regional Championship series #5 - Issaqueena Experimental Forest Trails - Clemson, SC 5-15-16. 

The trails were awesome after Thursdays rains and the cool and sunshine that followed.  A good turnout of kids hit the trail first which featured a 1/4 mile climb that the kids don't often see followed by a fast downhill road finish.  At 9:30 the yellow hit the big course which is also filled with lot's of climbs and rewards the riders with a fast downhill singletrack finish after 6.5 miles. By the white wave the temperatures had warmed up nicely and provided a perfect ending to a perfect race day.

Kyle Ellis took the men's pro/elite class and Jennifer Nielson won the women's cat 1 class.  Dustin Greer continues to hold the Leaders jersey in the men's and Kayley Burdine has a firm hold on the women's leader jersey at the halfway point in the series..   Many thanks to all of the sponsors including Specialized, South Paw cycles and the city of Clemson.
