This was also the first race for the TotalCyclist MTB team of 2013, with Jamie Turski, Scott George, Kelly Hudson and Michael Schafer racing in Sport, Single Speed and Expert classes.
Jamie Turski was first out on the course with a full Sport class for a 45 minute race. He ran out front for most of the race, and finished off with his first win in the sport class and first win of 2013.
Next out was Scott George and Kelly Hudson in the Single Speed class; forty minutes of racing in a full class. They both made a last sprint effort for passes right at the start/finish line. Scott pulled out a fifth place finish and Kelly sprinted to a "top 10 (9th place) in a stacked single speed field."
Scott and Kelly look like they're having a good time!
Michael Schafer finished out the day in the 60-minute Expert Class. Some of the best in the Charlotte area made the trip out for this one. Schafer rode hard and pulled out an 11th place finish.
