Fat Tire Massive Presents the One Communications MTB Race Series
It’s a new year, we have new ways to deal with life. The current guidelines have allowed us to start racing again in a very limited way for safety. As a result, we had to run more races with smaller groups and shorter race times. But with the cooperation and support of all the racers and families as well as the FTM crew, BBA, Bda. Timing and a small break in the nasty weather, it was an amazing event!
Thanks to all.
Southlands is a tough course, normally we would have run three races by now, allowing riders to build up some skill and experience. Additionally, RMS Boatworks and the FTM trail ninjas had been permitted to cut new trails some of which were added to the 1.6 mile course. 386 feet of climbing each lap!!
The 81 racers took it on in style and showed the course who is boss! The mishaps, including a broken set of carbon bars and a few shins were all taken in stride.
With the new format, it was a bit confusing as the times from different races had to be combined to determine overall winners based on most laps in best time. The results are now in, the winners can be congratulated! Please look on the fattiremassive.com website, Bermuda timing or check the FTM whatsapp chat for final results.
While you are there, check out the winning time for 13-15 male, then look at the winners of Open 30 who ran same time, same course………just sayin!
REMINDER!!! We have missed races to make up. Next Sunday, we are at lagoon park in dockyard. Again, refer to the www.fattiremassive.com website for details.
I look forward to seeing you there.
Chris Smith, Racer 13
