Mud, Sweat, and Gears #3 saw some more great racing and cooler weather. Now, if we could add some rain or snow, we might get some Belgian style cross. I can't say I mind the sunshine though...this was our 3rd straight weekend of great weather. Shawn Altizer bunny-hopped his way to the top of the A's and continued his dominance. Jeremy Chandler from Knoxville took the B's. Michael Wilson took win #2 in the Men's C field despite a strong effort from Dustin Jackson. Despite a lack of Jrs, Sean Letterman continues to improve, and Cara McCauley-Applegate returned this week to handily win the Women's race. Double points were on the table, so the series standings are really taking place. Race #6 on 12/4/04 is the next time double points will be awarded.
Thanks to all who came out this weekend. There's still plenty of racing action left at Winged Deer Park in Johnson City, TN. Click the banner to go to the Series homepage to find out when the next weekend of racing is.
