Smart Athletes had a big weekend at the first DH Enduro being held at Horseshoe Resort, Marathon Nationals and a Local 100 mile mtb race.
Cayley Brooks (Trek Canada) took the Win at Horseshoe Resort in the Enduro, demonstrating how her focus on bike skills and a very versatile Trek Superfly are a tough pair to beat. RidingFeelsGood has a great report with some great pictures of Cayley.
Also on this weekend was the Canadian National Marathon Championships in St. Raymond QC.
Christie Simon put forth a huge effort coming in at 4 hours 26 min and beating several elite level riders in her first time at that event.
Jon Slaughter, who was participating in one of his first longer/marathon styled races , also did a great job pacing well and coming in 16th overall and 14th Elite in the 97km event.
ALSO going on this weekend was the Eager Beaver (Results) an offroad Century and half Century at my home trails in Mansfield Ontario. Substance Productions puts on low key events, often with a twist on standard racing formats. While this event had the typical mass start endurance events it also used a concurrent relay format where teams road together for a single loop, adding up to a team distance of 100 miles.
Chris, Mike, Ene and Barry were among Smart Athletes out enjoying the fun and great weather, while several other Bike Skills clients were out practicing enjoying the new efficiency they had found in skill development !
