Keweenaw Chain Drive Festival

Tony Torrance made the journey from Madison Wisc. to Houghton MI for this great race. Here is what Tony had to say about the race. Tony placed 3rd overall in the Open class. Keweenaw Chain Drive Festival
The course was point to point. A lot of climbing. It was probably the best race course I’ve ridden. It had everything from tight single track to scream’n down hills to water crossings. Started in Houghton with a police escort that went over the bridge into Hancock and then the race went up into the hills. 32 miles in the sun. It was like 85 and sunny. It was actually pretty nice.. I race a prototype TREK FUEL race bike and blew out the new Manitou fork. My cassette came loose and was only held on by the quick release. It didn’t slow me down though! : )
