NORBA finale----- Stony Creek XC

This past sun day was the final NORBA race of the year for Michigan MTB race scene. Mike Simonster needed a win to pull out the series overall. Mike did not disappoint his team and fans. Rolling to an easy win Mike finished 1st in the series followed by Christian Tanguy, Greg Kuhn, Jason Lummis and Robert Herriman for the top 8 in the Pro/Semi-pro class (Elite).

The course was a mix of 2 track and single track for about a 6.5 mile loop of which the Elites did 5. Mike controlled the race from the start riding his Quiring rigid with Krysiriums and Cross tires. Jason Lummis battled teammates Greg and Robert for all 5 laps and finished just short of the 2 in 5th. Giving the podium a Bells Brewery and American Cycle & Fitness top 5.

Thank you to Robert Linden of Tailwind for promoting another season of great races. To all the teams and racers that made each race a fun event, keep training and racing. Michigan does have a MTB race scene and we do have great races, come out and enjoy.

NEXT race Chequamegon ---- The Simonster goes up against the Midwests best + JHK and a few other top national pros..................
