|Round 11 Race Report|
|Sunday morning the clouds were keeping the sun from
shining on the 10 Pee Wee riders sitting on the starting line. The track
was 1.5 miles and proved to be no problem for the riders. Brody Johnson,
Michael Overstreet and Colby Howard were the top three winners in the
Pee Wee class. Super Pee Wee leaders were Colby Burks, Brianna May and
The Youth quad riders were ready to hit the woods at 9:00 and show their skills to those spectators lining the track. Clint McCorkle, Colton White and Zachary Jones led the 90cc class across the finish line. Eric Bayne, Chase Hess and Blake Shepherd crossed the finish line first in the Modified class.
When the Mini riders went to the line, the sun was trying to peek through the clouds, but never made an appearance. Riding conditions were perfect for the 28 riders waiting on the flag to drop. Grant Baylor was the first place winner in the Intermediate class, Colin Jordan 2nd place and Nathan Hodges third place.
Noon brought the bikes to the starting line and still no sunshine. When the flag dropped, Corey McDonald led the pros into the woods for the beginning of 5.5 miles of new trails. Corey held Jesse Robinson back for the first few laps of the race until he could find the right place to pass. Once he found that place, Jesse and Corey switched leads a couple of times. Charlie Mullins, riding in borrowed boots, finally started making his move toward the front of the pack. With 2 laps to go, he moved into 2nd place right behind Robinson. Mullins and Robinson rode wheel to wheel until they came out to the finish line, with Mullins in front, where he took the checkered flag for the win. Jesse Robinson finished 2nd, Corey McDonald 3rd and Kenny Gilbert 4th. Wayne Beatty finished 1st in the Golden Masters followed by Jimmy Lynch. Michael Lyon, David Watts and Mike Ridings were the top winners in the Masters class.
When the Quads went to the line, we had given up on the chance of sunshine. Dustin Canipe got the holeshot for the pros but met with mechanical problems. Bryan Cook was able to capture the lead and held on to overall the race. The new trails made it difficult for the quad riders to find a perfect passing place keeping them in single file for quite sometime. Angela Horn, Breanna Seagle, and Kari Woody were the top winners in the Womens class, which has grown to having over 8 riders per race
See everybody in Morganton, October 18th.
