2016 Spring Epic 8HR

The 2016 Fox Epic 8HR once again returned to the Mansfield Outdoor Centre for another amazing day of relay racing! The Chico Racing crew delivered a fast 10km course which was even further improved with a light sprinkle of rain in the mid day.




Team Progressive was represented across multiple categories, as Peter, Jay, Mike, Kyle, Jasui and Mandy raced in the 6-Person Open category, Kelsey and Matt in the 2-Person field, and Brendan and Gary battling in their Solo categories. Maverix riders had a solid day on the 10km course as all teams took the win in their categories, with Gary just missing the podium by under a minute. Kelsey also nailed the fastest lap of the day on the start lap; made even more impressive as they maintained sub-30 min laps for another 7 hrs after that as a 2-Person tag team!

We also welcomed Marlene from Progressive Nutritional, as she joined us for a day of awesome product sampling and most importantly, to cheer us on! It was great to have her in our corner (and a steady supply of Phytoberry – one of the team favourites!).

Lastly, and we tout this often, Simon was once again on-point in our tech area! He kept our bikes in tune between laps and made sure we were all fueled and ready for racing!

A great day of racing and another amazing event by the Chico and Superfly Racing gang!
