On April 7th, a small contingent of Bike Lane racers made camp in North Carolina for the 6 Hours of Warrior Creek endurance race. Racing solo, Ryan Jenkins represented the men and Beth Fulton the women. Four team women registered for the duo-female fields: Jill Eanes and Dee Reeb made up the first entry while Elaine Hess and Arden Sperty the second.
Staving off disaster during their Friday pre-ride – and probing the limits of modern automotive bicycle+passenger design capacity – all 5 racers took the start line on Saturday. Endurance races are a tricky matter, and making it through the full race distance is often more complicated than the results indicate. The team is happy to report that all 5 entrants finished the day without issue, putting in some impressive performances along the way. Full results can be found here, but the highlights are below:
- 28th, Ryan Jenkins [Niner Air 9] – Solo Male
- 14th, Beth Fulton [Trek Superfly 100] – Solo Female
- 5th, Jill Eanes [Trek Paragon] and Dee Reeb [Trek Superfly 100] – Duo Female
- 11th, Arden Sperty and Elaine Hess – Duo Female
Of special note, congrats to Jill and Dee for their impressive podium performance! Watch out for a much larger group of Bike Lane racers at this weekend’s Bakers Dozen.
