Mid Atlantic Super Series (MASS) racing resumed this weekend with “Andrew Meins Excellent Adventure” a 12 hour endurance lap race on the Granogue Estates in Delaware. Team CF racer Jesse Kelly took home the win in the Masters 45+ division with fourteen laps, beating the second place rider by a comfortable margin. As the only solo rider to finish 14 laps, not only was Jesse the fastest Masters racer but the fastest solo racer overall.
Leftover rain from the remnants of Hurricane Andrea dosed the estate grounds with nearly 3 inches of rain in the days leading up to the event. What started out as just “slippery conditions” in the morning, ended up as a course characterized by mud with “peanut butter” consistency. Refueling stops each lap turned into bike cleaning stops necessary to remove the caked on mud that jammed drive trains and suspension systems.
Newly minted Team CF elite team member Jesse Kelly wasted no time establishing himself as the man to beat in this grueling event. Jesse describes his day:
Kyle Miller, from Team CF Philadelphia regional team, partnered up with Nick Sears and Gunnar Bergey and brought home the 3-man win with total domination.
