Mike Maher and Kirk Morrison got their DIRT-WORM on at the day#1 mtn bike race of the 2-day (mtn/road) Strongland racing weekend.
As Kirk tells the story:
Mike Maher and I raced in the Intermediate II Class at the Tour de Strongland Mtb race at Roaring Run Park (near Apollo).
This was a well attended race with fairly treacherous trails (lots of wet rocks and roots). The course was technically challenging (for me anyway) with spectacular scenery.
Mike got off to an early solo lead and rode smart (and fast)...
...to a 1st place finish in both the Overall and Masters (40+) categories.
I was further back in the pack and ended up finishing in 2nd place in the Senior (50+) category as well as 15th place in the overall Intermediate II field.
The results should appear at the following website
After taking advantage of the local stream for some cleanup...
...I enjoyed some Uncle Charlie’s (the sponsor) burgers before the award ceremonies. Excellent event ……… I’ll definitely be back.
Attached are a few pics taken by Mike and me.
