2015 South Eastern Regional Championship series #5 / Georgia State Championship #4 - Dauset Trails - Jackson, GA 5-24-15.
Absolutely perfect weather and trail conditions on this Memorial Day weekend race in Middle Georgia. Dauset is one of the funnest and best maintained trails in the state and always fun to layout as it has so many different options and combinations of trails from easy to hard and from slow and technical to fast and flowing. This year the 6.7 mile course was set up with a relatively fast flow to it but had a few sprinkles of technical rock sections thrown in to make it interesting, most of the climbs were short but steep. Many thanks to the OMBA club out of Macon for supporting the event and maintaining the trails along with the Dauset trails crew who are always on top of things at the park.
The top Male rider was again Bradford Perley in the men's pro claas while Maria Carrelli took the win in the women's top class. Carter Anderson was the winner of the First Place Racing $50 holeshot award and Oscar Coleman won the KMC holeshot chain in his category.

2015 USAC Florida one day State Championship - Loyce Harpe Trails - Lakeland, FL 5-9-15.
Located smack dab in the middle of Florida lies Lakeland and fortunately it is also home to one of the of the best mountain bike trail systems in the state and a perfect place to hold the annual one day state USAC championship race. The trails are technical in many places and fast and flowing in others and offers many different options with it's set up. This time it was a 6.5 mile course that featured a long start road and long finish road had lot's of cool trails like "rattle snake, "the beast", "rollercoaster" and many more in the middle. The summer is not far away and the riders definately got a hint of what is to come with temp's in the low nineties but fortunately the humidity was low so it did not seem as hot as it could have.
Top Riders on the day were Ryan Woodall in the 30-39 cat 1 men's class and Shelly Allen in the Women's Cat 1 class, no suprises there are both are multi-time state champions with many national credentials to boast as well.
Many thanks to Ray Wells and the Ridge Riders club for getting the course ready and to Bent's Cycling for providing the bulk of the prizes to the athletes.
