Henry Clay 30K

Sorry for the late post but such is life. A week and 1/2 ago now was our home race at Coopers Rock State Park. Big turn out for the wicked tough course. Gunnar put together a challenging course that included most of the great trails at Coop's. Lots of vertical, 2 assents up the Rail Road grade with the finish coming at the top of the second time up. As a team we had a good showing with lots of team kits ride'n around in multiple classes. Some guys had a good day and others not so good. Our top finisher in the expert field was Stephen with a awsome 2nd place. It was pretty damn cool to see Steve out sprint Andy W. for 2nd. Wish I would have been ready with the camera but I was too out of it after my meltdown. Jeremy had a tough one with 2 flats but finished after hiking most of the way up the rail grade the second time. Sean and Zach battled for 7th and 8th places, respecively.

In the Sport class Matt was our top finisher with a 4th place but more importanly kept his bike in one piece. Scott got in the top 10 wth a 7th place. Adam R. was flying MTV colors as a honary member and got a 6th place after a specacular finish trying to pass 5th place. Anthony broke the top 5 in the beginner class with a 4th place.

Only 2 more WVMBA's to go. It's a close race in the overall point series and should make for a exciting end to the schedule.
