Gnar Weasels - Foxboro, MA

Written by: Karen Potter


The Gnar Weasels race in Foxboro State Park is fast becoming a New England favorite.  The course is truly gnarly - full of little rocks, medium rocks, big rocks, slab rocks, roots etc. - a challenge to even the most talented technical riders.  This year, race promoters added a strava 'enduro' segment with fastest male and female times getting a bonus prize.  Only the elite and expert racers got to ride the enduro segment which consisted of large rock slab rollers, some drops and rocky, rooty spine riding.  Thankfully the course dried out from Saturday's rain so the gnarly riding didn't get too greasy.

The elite women's field had 7 solid local racers toe the line with Crystal Anthony (Riverside) taking the win after duking it out for two laps with Stephanie Baker (DG Cycle Sports) despite suffering a bloody lip from crashing on a slick bridge at the end of the enduro segment.  Maureen Bruno Roy followed up in 3rd place.  Karen Potter (Epic Brewing/ had taken the lead in the first lap in the enduro section but a bent rim and flat took her out of the race.  

The elite men's race was won by a non-local, Neal Burton ( who proved he could ride the Gnar from the start and put an insurmountable lead on the rest of the field within half a lap. Brendan McCormack (Cliff Bar/Pactimo), a very local racer, took 2nd followed up by Bobby Nash. Of note in the men's field, Shawn Mottram (NESS) started his race in the elite singlespeed category over 2 minutes late and managed to crush his way through the pack to finish 5th overall.  Full results below:
