Successful first round of CORC XC 3 hour series

Race Report by Michael McGurgan

CORC 3 hour series

The first round of the 2016 XC 3hr series proudly supported by Bike Culture is done and dusted (but no dust on Sunday) with perfect riding conditions, despite a freezing, foggy start and a bit of standing around waiting on crew admin to finish. Apologies for the 30 minute delay – a couple of misbehaving laptops and we ran out of cable ties (thanks to the people who chipped in some to get us moving).

Once the sun came out (nicely for the start) we had 188 riders heading out, mass start – what a sight (144 solo, 44 teams, 40 females out there) is this a record?

Big thanks to my helpers: Kendara and Fabrice Boone, Scott Dore, Graeme Hall, Mark Moerman, Donna Stephenson, Kris and Hilde Grande, Mel Crampton, Michael Inglis, Mullet and Ally McGurgan (and everyone else I’ve missed) – great teamwork!

Cheers Mike
