The fearsome foursome of Chris Rose, Jim Kobak, Tom Moffett and Bob Maswick put together four strong laps to capture the High Peaks Cyclery ADK 80K Mountain Bike Race at Mt Van Hoevenberg in Lake Placid on August 31st.
This was the second consecutive year that Peru Nordic won the 4-person Team event. Peru even had a second team in the race, featuring Jamey Maswick, Janet Findlay, Dave Hunter and Jamey Maswick that captured third place.
Peru Nordic was led by Chris “Hand of Doom” Rose who blistered what wound up being the third fastest lap on the day. He was followed by the pedestrian Jim “Harvester of Sorrow” Kobak. Tom “Machine Gun” Moffet had a spectacular lap, and was followed by a stellar anchor leg by Bob “Lord of Destruction” Maswick. Pleased with the result, the VHCS Supercomputer has decided to award Viking Helmet Points to all Nordiques who participated!
The Peru Nordic Mountain Bike season continues each Sunday at Ausable Chasm with the World Famous ChasmRiders Series.
