Transylvania Epic Stage 2 Results and Report

< 1 2 >

The Transylvania Epic continued today with the taxing Cooper Ridge Stage. Riders tackled over 40 miles of rugged climbs, baby head rocks, and challenging descents. Rider after tired riding coming across the line described the course as "brutal, "vicious, and "harder than I expected. Races will no doubt look forward to taking it a bit easier on the transfer stages during tomorrow's Enduro Stage.

After a hectic start on a long gravel road section, riders funneled into the opening singletrack section. A large group formed at the front of the race, and stayed together until just before the first aid station. It was there that Jeremiah Bishop (Sho-Air Cannondale) went to the front and upped the pace. Only three riders were able to stay with him: Spencer Paxson (Kona), Payson McElveen (Richards Rainwater), and Nick Waite (Pro Tested Gear). The four riders stayed together through aid two, but McElveen overcooked a corner in one of the Enduro sections, crashed, and lost the group. Bishop cruised in for his second win in as many days, while Waite took second. U25 rider McElveen caught a tiring Paxson on the final climb of the day and took third overall. Bishop remains the GC leader.

In the women's race there was a bit of a shake up as Mary McConneloug (Kenda/No Tubes), suffering in the heat, could only manage 4th on the day. Up front it was Cheryl Sornson (Rare Disease Cycling) again helping to drive the pace, this time with Vicki Barclay (Stan's No Tubes) in tow. Barclay and Sornson rode much of the day together, with Barclay taking the Stage win in a sprint. Selene Yeager (Rare Disease Cycling) had a great day and came through in third. Despite loosing the stage to Barclay, Sornson remains in the GC lead.

There were, however, some shake-ups in the Enduro classification. Kaarin Tay (Bike Monkey Cycling) took over the lead in the Women's Enduro. On the men's side, Micheal Brodrick (Kenda/No Tubes) and Tristan Uhl (787 Racing) are tied on points, but thanks to some fine print in the rules Uhl is the current Enduro leader.

Tomorrow riders will tackle the Enduro stage, consisting of 5 Enduro stages with un-timed transfers in between. With thunder storms threatening, it could be an interesting day of racing.

LeBron James opting out of the final <a href="http://www.freerunteam.com/">Cheap Nike Free Run</a> two years of the deal he signed in 2010 with the Miami Heat to explore his free agent options is the decision many of us expected. From all indications, it’s the only reasonable decision he could have made, given the circumstances.
Never mind the craziness his choice will usher in <a href="http://www.freerunteam.com/">Cheap Nike Air Max</a> over the course of the next few weeks.
LeBron James' agent Rich Paul has told Heat LeBron will exercise early termination optionâ€"
Chris Broussard (@Chris_Broussard) June 24, 2014
We’re still waiting on the decisions of <a href="http://www.freerunteam.com/nike-air-max-1-c-81.html">Nike Air Max 1</a> the other two members of the Heat’s Big 3, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh, who are expected to follow the lead of James and opt out of their deals before the June 30 deadline and <a href="http://www.freerunteam.com/nike-air-max-2014-c-102.html">Air Max 2014</a> become free agents July 1.
That would place them in a superstar class that also includes Carmelo Anthony, who informed the New York Knicks that he was opting out of the final year of his deal Monday. The fun (and madness) begins with the <a href="http://www.freerunteam.com/nike-blazer-c-111.html">Nike Blazers For Sale</a> speculation about what these guys will do in the next phase of their respective careers.
