Yellow Bellys

Kirk Morrison, Mike Maher, HannaH Brewer and Rich Allen left the comfort of their couches and ventured into the wilds of Indiana, Pa to play in the dirt at the Yellow Creek Racing Series.

Kirk Morrison Reports:

Race Name: Yellow Creek Grassroots Racing MTB
Race Location: Yellow Creek State Park, PA
Race Category: Expert, 18 miles (around the lake)
Finish Place: 18th

Web Address to Results:

Race Review (from the organizers website): "Clear, sunny, dry, low 60's to start, low 70's to finish."

Comments: Challenging but fun race. This was my 4th time on this Expert course (around the lake) and I was happy to take 17 minutes off my previous best time (2:20:07 vs 2:37:25 from May 2013). Unfortunately, this faster time still left me in the back of the pack since everyone else seems to be getting faster too !

In the Expert race was joined by Mike (10th place) and Hannah (13th place overall, 1st place woman) while Richy took the win in the Sport class (and gave me his Pie prize .... Thanks Richy !). 

Best regards,

While Mike Maher Reports:

Website says no one got lost. I beg to differ.
0.6 of a mile more than Kirk :)
Oh and delightful extra bonus climb. 
Good course. Lots of fun. Great technical section!
