Hawks make impression at WORS Treadfest

Eric Smith continues to impress as he finished first in the 17-18 year age group in the Sport category of today's Wisconsin Off Road Series Treadfest race at the Grand Geneva Resort in Lake Geneva, Wis. He was first among a group of 10 riders, completing three laps of the technical course with lots of vertical in just over 1 hour and 20 minutes. His time was good enough for 16th overall among all Sport racers.

Andy Fehrenbach finished just more than 6 minutes behind his teammate, good enough for sixth in the age group and 59th in the category of 182 finishers.

Forty-four starters did not finished the race, a testament to the difficulty of the course and the unseasonably warm temperatures. Among those who did not finish was Andy Ayers, who was forced to withdraw from the race with a broken chain on his second lap.

Zach Smith finished 12th in the Sport 19-24 group and 142nd overall. Due to a timing SNAFU, Paul Meuer was not given a result, which is unfortunate, because the determined first-year racer definitely finished the race.

On the women's side, Tiffany Seering finished third in the 19-29 age class of Sport riders with a time of 1:49.58 for three laps. Her result was good for 15th among all women Sport competitors.

The beauty of a WORS race is Coach gets to race, too. I finished second in my 35-39 age group of Comp racers and 12th overall with a time of two hours and four minutes for four long and agonizing laps.
