“Josh Hall, Jake Samborski, and myself went went to Yankee Springs for a long weekend of camping, riding, and racing. I had never ridden Yankee before, it was a blast, lot’s of elevation for lower Michigan, something about melting glaciers. The trail had some awesome descents which is a nice change up from the smaller, rolling hills found at our local trails. Yankee was Josh’s first Cat 1 XC race and he placed 13th out of 32 in the Cat 1 30-39 race!
Mr. Samborski (aka the Gnardawg) definitely felt at home on this technical course, he placed 7th out of 19 in the Cat 2/3 Single Speed race and was geared 2:1! I just missed the podium with a 4th place finish in the Cat 2 19-29 race. Great weekend with some good results. Look out for an announcement regarding the Island Lake race on May 22nd.”
