Mike McQuillin was on a roll at Alafia FSC

2017 Specialized Florida State Championship series #3 - Alafia River State Park - Lithia, Fl

I think summer forgot to look at the calendar, it is October in Florida and it was a hot one at Alafia. Normally the weather is perfect this time of year in Florida, you know, low humidity, mild and sunny, this race felt like mid July but at least it didn't rain and in fact the trails were in great shape (many thanks to all of the nearly 200 volunteers after Irma that helped get Alafia back online). The course was set up with many of the new reroutes in the trails system and was just a little under 7 miles clocking in at 6.8 officially. Fun was the most common word heard throughout the day concerning the track, yes it was fun with lot's of up's and down's and banked turns throughout.

In the racing action there was lot's of new winners this week and that includes the men's Elite class with Daniel Hidalgo taking the win on this day despite dropping his chain on the start and coming from dead last to first in the four lap affair. Also in the women's expert class Alaina Casioppo won her first race of the season. Bob McCarty and Carolyn Maddox will continue to hold on to the leaders jersey's in there respective class however. Mark Singleton took the Protano Law $50 holeshot award this week in the 50+ expert class and Team Bent's Dirt Dominators are on top of the team championship standings with a slim 3 point lead. Many thanks to AJ's Bikes and Boards for handling the round sponsorship and handing out lot's of great prizes to the winners!

Cat 2 40+ lifts off at Tom Brown FSC

2017 Specialized Florida State Championship series #2 - Tom Brown Park - Tallahassee, Fl

The weather broke at just the right time for the second round of the FSC series, mild temperatures and low humidity ruled the day (ok both days). This year the annual short track bounus round was moved to Tom Brown park due to the many changes after the hurricane in what worked out to be an exciting and challenging course it even had a nice climb in it each lap. Doug Deweese came out on top of the Saturday yellow wave short track event but it was super close, Caroyln Maddox took the top female spot. Antonio Marquina also took a close win in the white wave ST.

Sunday the attention moved to the 6.8 mile cross country course which saw the return of "Cudzilla" the bmx style downhill section located in the middle of the course and who could forget the "Wall People" heckling the riders as they banked there way around the wooden wall feature. The course was in great shape again this year thanks to all of the efforts of the volunteers cleaning up after the storm. Defending champ Bob McCarty got his first win of the season in what is shaping up to be a tight points battle for the Elite leaders jersey. Amy Horstmeyer was the winner in the women's top class.

Many thanks to Higher Ground bicycles for handing out all of the great prizes to the awardees!

Next race is in Lithia, Fl for the third round of the series at Alafia River State Park, see you there!
