Bonebender 2013!!

Horizon Cycling out in Force!!! I would say we were well represented out for the 5th annual running to BoneBender out at Clinton Lake, KS.

Huge props to Chris Locke for putting on an outstanding event every year.

These are MTB endurance races with 3 hour and 6 hour options. Team Horizon Cycling had riders racing the 3 hour solo and 6 hour team races.

Head on over to their blog and you will find results, pics, etc..

Horizon Cycling was well represented in the 6 hour team with 7 Out of 13 teams!

Second through Fourth places were all Team Horizon Cycling and all came in within 20 min of eachother!

2nd Place  - Craig and Blake Hoppe
3rd Place - Waynes & Waynes
4th Place - Travis Halbrok & Brandon Puett
6th Place - Kranhold &Zwaschka
9th Place - JP Shores & Gary Mapes (Shores Sports)
11th Place - Brad Rylie & Randy Tracy (Trail Hippy)
12th Place - Darell Williams & Juston Carr

Then we have our one solo rider Jason Douglas, finished up the 3 hour solo, 17th out of 87 or 11th out of 34 in the 30-39 age group.

Season is getting started!!

Looks like the first big race of the year is next weekend! We have several riders already signed up.

Its a great event Chis Lock puts on each year. I think this is the 4th one. Its an endurance race with solo and duo, 3 hour and 6 hour options. The course is always fun and fast with just enough rocks to keep you honest.

In other news, some of the crew made a road trip down to AK for a little spring training... Maybe we can get one of them to do a little write up..

In other news, Road Racing is already in full effect with JDoug hitting up some races already at Perry Lake, KC and Travis hitting up some early racing down in AZ.

Travis, Mini Race Report..

Lots of fun at Foray at the Fort!(Fort Huachuca) Awesome 1.5 mile climb with with sand and loos rocks to start each lap! 3 laps, 15 miles, 2800ft of ascent and an altitude near 5000ft(which made my lungs burn like fire). I found out why they put that little chain ring on the front lol. I rode a pretty clean race this time. I did notice that I was a little more cautious on the rocky downhills. The Scalpel AL 3 has really been a great bike! I still need more practice on the fast downhills but I'm improving as time goes by. That is the part of the race where the fast guys leave me. They ride soo smooth through the rocky downhills. This race took every ounce of energy I had but left me with enough to smile! Cat 1 and Pros did 25 miles! Marathon 45 miles! Wow!
