Winter Short Track Series, Race #2

Scott George is all about having fun!

Awesome turnout for the TC MTB team this weekend for the second Charlotte Mountain Bike Short Track Series race.

The Men's Sport class kicked off the day for the team, with Jamie Turski finishing 2nd in the 19-39 group and Kelly Hudson in 4th for the 40 +.

Next up was Scott George and Jamie, in his second race of the day, competing in a full single speed field.  Jamie finished 8th , while Scott, battling a stomach virus, fought hard for a 14th place finish.

Bonnie Kleffman and Elsa Lee made their first appearance of the short track season, competing in the expert class.  Bonnie lapped the entire expert field for a well deserved first place finish.  Elsa fought her way through the expert class to finish 7th.

As soon as Bonnie crossed the finish line, she quickly swapped out numbers and jumped in the Men's Super Sport class; just to get in a few more laps.

Michael Schafer, competing in the Expert class, faced mechanical issues early in the race and had to abandon.

Great job by the entire team!  We even had Sherry George and Laura Gleason cheering from the sidelines!

Kelly Hudson, the man who can't help but smile.
