The race season is winding down with the final race in the MNSCS last weekend. It was a great season for the first year with some great results. A few of the highlights the end of the season include Steve Wenzel completing the Leadville 100 race won by Lance Armstrong, Paul Cullen taken the Sport win at Spirit Mountain MNSCS race, Jake Richards defending his title in the Chequemegon Short and Fat, Trent Warner battling for the top spot at St Cloud MNSCS en route to second and the Maplelag/Paramount Sport team taking third place overall in the team competetion to name a few. Results are great, for sure, but being a good representative on the bike is just as important and thanks to everyone who waved the flag for the team in fine fashion this season. We would like to expand the team by a few riders next year, mainly in the Citizen class, and if you are interested, drop me an e-mail. Still some great riding to be had this Fall and good luck to everyone on late season races including the cyclocross scene.
