The new Chasm Riders MTB Race Series got underway on Sunday, May 27, and Peru Nordic’s Chris Rose (Mountain Riders) won the opening event. Rose battled Bruce Beauharnois (Wear on Earth) over the three-lap course, attacking in the singletrack on the final lap. Ashton Momot (Wear on Earth) and Jason Amorell (Placid Planet) duked it out for third. Peru Nordic’s Jim Kobak (unattached) managed to crack the top 5.
The Series continues next week, and every Sunday at the Ausable Chasm Recreation Center. Today’s race was the first of the “Super Sunday” events with sweet prizes given away by Plattsburgh’s Mountain Riders shop. All competitors in the elite race received a pair of Mountain Riders bike shorts today… the next Super Sunday is June 17. Every week there is a free kids’ race, too. C’mon out to Ausable Chasm for some sweet MTB action.
