Chico Racing’s Spring Epic 8HR is typically the first team relay event of the season and it’s a favourite among the local mountain bike race community. This particular event also marked an important day for Maverix Racing, as it was the first time that the entire Team Progressive crew was able to get together for an event.
The annual relay race returned once again to the Mansfield Outdoor Centre for another great day of racing. The 8km course was perfect with just a few dusty sections and the eminent rain held off just long enough for the last rider to cross the finish line!
Team Progressive was represented across multiple categories, as the team split up to spread the field. Peter, Jay, Mike and Kyle raced in the 4-Person Open category, taking 1st place, while Chris and Jan also snagged 1st in their 2-Person Open field. Ryan and Lindsay also had an awesome day of racing, taking 3rd in the 2-Person Mixed category!
A great day of racing!
