Team Loppet had a great athlete turn out for the Woolly Race in St Croix Falls on Sunday May 17th. Despite some threatening weather and some really muddy conditions for Sport and Marathon, conditions were really good for all the other categories.

Rookies!

Team Loppet had two mountain bike racing rookies that had great races: Brad Bart finished 10th overall in Citizen, in his first ever mountain bike race, and Andy Brown jumped right into the Comp Category and placed 26th.

Upcoming Races:

Mt Borah Epic (15 and 30 miles) Saturday, May 30. Though its not a part of the MN series, the “Epic” is a speical opportunity to do a point to point race. Terrain is intermediate in nature- this is one of the favorite courses in the midwest.

Mankato MN Series, Mt Kato Sunday, May 31. Unfortunately, this race is the same weekend as the Epic…its also a great course, quite hilly and more technically challenging then the Woolly.
