7/2 STONEY CREEK Marathon XC (NORBA) another race and another WIN


Mike Simonson (1st PLACE) and Jason Lummis (5th Place) attended the Stoney Creek (Metro Park) Marathon XC, a NORBA event. Saturday afternoon the racers set off on a 60 mile XC race (6, 10 mile loops). The course used most of the 2 tracks and single track available at the Metro Park. With a 10 person Elite class with a payout to the top 7 the race was tight. Mike set the pace early and was off the front most the race, WINNING with a Time of 3:45. Jason's race was a little more dramatic with a continous pedal problem Jason battled back and forth from 7th to 4th finally falling into 5th about a 4 miles into the last 10 mile loop with a time of 4:02. As always our TREK TOP FUELS gave us the unfair advantage, ADDIDAS shorts and shoes made the race that much easier, TIFOSI glasses kept the bugs and dust from our eyes, CLIFF SHOT kept us energized and after 3.5 hrs of racing the only thing on our minds is the cooler full of iced down, full of flavor, BELLS OBERON and some water.

NEXT RACES...... BOYNE (MMBA CPS) and WORS Devils Head Stage race (Madison WI)
