MOB Racing has seen recent great results and participation in all categories. I recently participated in the FRENCH BROAD CYCLING CLASSIC CRIT on Sunday. 50+elite....and got schooled by wiley old vets but great fun. An absolutely blistering fast course. The team will have to look toward this next year. Daryl Rains won the 45+ TT and finished top 10 in RR and Rodney Simpson finished top 10 in 35+ TT and RR and was 10th in Omnium points going into Sunday.

DIXIE: Raced in the last Dixie race of the season last pm. Frank,Matt and I worked hard to attack the B race, and Franked attacked and created a 3 man break and finished 2nd overall. Great teamwork.....the potential of our Cat3 group is huge. Cat 1-2 had 2 guys in the break in the A race to lap the field and finished top 3. Hate to see the series end. Great fun.

But all of the racing aside, the team has done HUGE WORK to SUPPORT CHARITIES over the past 6 weeks and throughout the season. Our team helped sponsor, promote and deliver THE PIEDMONT TRIAD OMNIUM which recently raised $25000.00 for MS and Lexington Parks bike Greenway. We provided $, sweat, work, racing, and brain power to help make it work. The team supported the MS Training ride last month and the MS VIBE Ride last month. Riders have participated in the Tour de Kale, Red Sleigh Ride,Tour de Furniture, Stroke Ride just to name a few. Seeing the team give of themselves in this way brings great pride to all of us. THANKS!
We will be helping to sponsor the HANES PARK CLASSIC NRC RACE on August 8th. The finish line will be at the front door of Mock Orange Bikes.....awesome.

CX....CX....IT'S COMING IN A BIG WAY..........
