Mike Simonson takes his 3rd Elite win of the year for the Bells Brewery/ Quiring Cycles MTB Team. Scott Quiring takes 5th on his single speed Elite, Jason Lummis 6th Elite, John Meyers 7th Elite and Joberon 17th Elite. The Yankee Springs TT is the 1st MTB race for Michigan yearly and has a large turn out to stretch the racing legs out. The TT is an 11 mile single track race against the clock, Elites start 15 secs apart for bait. While taking 4 of the top 7 places the Bells Team let a secret out on Michigan races, rigid Quiring 29ers are a fast ride and can handle a rough trail. An added bonus to the Yankee race is the close proximity too Kalamazoo and the Mother ship Bells Brewery, where a quick stop to refil and refuel the supplies of Bells clothing and beverages to accomodate us for awhile. We will be back the 7th after Fort Custer Stampede a nice 2:30+ hour XC race. Pictures soon ! It really is about the bike and the beer !
