Stump Farm 100 RESULTS
Here are the race results, there were a few DB errors that had to be corrected before posting. Some racers also asked if the laps were really 7.3 miles. The answer is yes unless a very expensive GPS that is used for map making was defective. Some racers reported only riding a little over 6 miles according to their Strava. Cell coverage and even low end GPS units don’t work very good in dense coverage on rolling terrain. An alternative method is a really expensive GPS unit with an external patch or helix antenna or the good old fashion wired cycle computer.

The Canopy Zip-N-Challenge is just around corner, less than 2 weeks before we kick off the season at a new venue near Lake Geneva, WI. The recent trail report states that the trails are in good condition, despite the longer than normal winter conditions. Take advantage of a Series Number Plate registration for $15/rider and save $5 off your pre-registration entry fee (per event) or $10 off the day of race entry fee (per event). Its not too late to still sign up for the new “Team Competition”. Anyone can create a team name and invite other riders to join their team and work towards earning team based mileage. The team who records the most miles will receive a custom “traveling” trophy belt that will go from race to race til the end of the season. The trophy belt will be permanently awarded to the team who completes the most miles during the season. Keep in mind that teams can be a mixture of Solo, Duo’s, and Relay Teams in any combination of the Short, Mid, and Long course lengths.

WEMS would like to thank all of the racers who came out this year and gave it your all. We hope everyone had a great time and are glad to see that the worst injury consisted of a few scratches and nothing more. It was great to see a bunch of new racers come out to do battle for the Thunderdown Cup. The trio from Ohio brought some potential going up against Duluth and Green Bay for 3rd place but at the end of day the Duluth Duo of Tim Ek and Charlie Farrow finished a solid 3rd place for the Thunderdown Cup. The showdown for 1st or 2nd was again between Wausau and Rhinelander. Wausau had a great representation and so did Rhinelander! The defending champions, Wausau, had put up some good laps. By night fall it was looking like a tie with the final outcome and new city Champions going to Rhinelander, WI. The next battle for the Thunderdown Cup will be on July 19th, 2014. Invite all your mountain bike friends back for a chance to win the Thunderdown Cup. The Thunderdown Cup is a traveling Cup which is open for any city to claim if they think they have what it takes to rack up the laps at Underdown in July.
