This past weekend was the first official XC race of the 2010 Mid-Atlantic Super Series; Bike Line XC @ Fair Hill. Everyone was amped to test their early season fitness, and the day did not disappoint! With over 700 racers in attendance, it was hard to stay calm and focused on our own race! With so many there, we made sure to be as visible as possible of course. Flag me!
After what seemed like a bigillion sport riders took off on the course for their race, Matt and I took off for a warm-up pre-ride of the course. What we found was what we expected: A fast, fun course, with a small sprinkling of short punchy climbs to sting the legs and help create separations in the pace-lines during the first lap. Before we knew it, we finished and were ready to race.
Afterwards, we took another spin on the course and then cleaned up for some socializing and story telling with everyone we raced with. Great race, great weather, couldn’t ask for a better start to the season!

Starting this weekend at the Mid-Atlantic Super Series XC race at Fairhill, Giant Mid-Atlantic will be raffling off the first of 4 ‘Intercourse Care Packages’. These prize packages from Intercourse Brewing Company are killer!! You can purchase your tickets at the race directly from our team for $5/ticket, no limit to how many you can buy, but you must be 21 years of age or older. For more info on what you get in the ‘Intercourse Care Package’, be sure to ask one of the team members at the races (just look for the Giant Bicycles tent and flag). The majority of proceeds from the raffle go to helping to fund our racing season, with a portion to go to a charity of our choice. We’ll be choosing the charity at the end of the season, at the end of the 4th raffle.
