BHB Cross Central NC Race 1 and 2
This AWESOME race series started off on September 10th and 11th at the great Spring Hill/Dorthea Dix location with some great CX racing. Great job from our friends at Berger Hardware for putting on a great event, bringing big crowds, and hosting an excellent course.

Not everybody has the stomach for CX. We found a great video from this weekend of a young CX rider who raced his second CX race ever. We think he needs a few beer hands ups for this video. Check it out.

** SPONSOR ALERT! **GU Energy joins HBWRT for 2016!
In January of 2016, GU Energy Labs, the original sports energy gel provider, announced a sponsorship for the Hawley’s Bicycle World Race Team to become the official Energy Gel and Chew provider of the team.
At a grass-roots level, this sponsorship means a lot to many of our racers, as the costs for cycling equipment and nutrition can be very expensive.
“We are thrilled to join forces with a long-time industry leader such as GU Energy Labs and their tremendous product line of energy gels and chews,” said Michael Roberts, HBWRT Manager.

George Hatcher raced again while injured to secure his series lead in the Men’s 60+ CX 4/5. Luke Thomas took 3rd in Juniors 15-18 after a slip while leading the field. Luke then placed 8 / 32 in the Men’s Open CX 4/5. Conditions were very sloppy as it had rained the day prior, as well as all day during the races. The NCCX series wraps up in 2 weeks Jan. 17-18 in Asheville at the Biltmore Estate.
