Dahlonega 10/17/10

A small of group of ACC racers made the trip to Dahlonega for the third race of the GA series. They were faced with an unbelievably tough course with many racers choosing to ride mountain bikes. Team ACC had none of that nonsense. The first half was full of technical switchbacks, dangerous downhills and a gravel run up. The last half was all uphill....road and grass.

Nate Z. continued his domination of the Masters race by leading from the start and never looked back. He earned back the leader's jersey he lost last week. John Phelan took his first Masters podium with a third place finish. Kelly Edwards took a top 10 in the C race and Dave F. took 15th out of almost 50 racers.

John, Kelly and Matt Kogel all raced the single speed race in addition their regular event. Phelan ran a 38x25 to take the win and his second podium of the day. Matt placed 6th and Kelly 12th. Laddie raced a stacked mens B field and placed a respectable 11th.

Becca wore the leader's jersey but had her hands full in the A race. Kim Flynn caught almost half of the Men's B field for an overwhelming victory. Becca hung tough with a top 5 placing. Jack Phelan just missed a podium spot with a 4th.

Three podium spots and consistent racing leaves ACC in the lead for both team competitions. Up next, Savannah.
