Fair Hills Bike Race

This was an mountain Bike race that took place in April in Elkton Maryland called the Fair Hills XC and is a Mid Atlantic Super Series XC and it is held in the state park and the trails awe awesome .  It had many functions one could engage the event from Category 1 to endurance and pro.  The difference were the amount of laps one did and category 1 was one lap, category 2 was 2 laps and so on up the scale. A lap was about 7 miles so category 2 was about 14 miles.  The trails were well maintained and were comprised of single track and double track and jeep trails.  This was a great event. 

A few years ago John Mosmiller killed the enemy and took third place rising onto the podium, John below but the photo below is of a different race

This year 2021, Tim McQuillan I participated in the event. Tim did open Category 2 and I did Category 2 Single Speed and no one in my age group beat me on a single speed.  It was a fun filled day and I can not wait to go back and do the endurance.  Here are some photos below.
