Sunday, May 3rd was the 2015 Volvo Michaux Endurance Series – Michaux Maximus which is staged out of the Bendersville Parking Lot on Pine Grove Furnace Road in the Michaux State Forest not far from Pine Grove Furnace State Park, PA.
The Maximus offers up some of Michaux’s best trails with silky smooth single track, rip-roaring ATV double track climbs and descents along with enough rocks mixed in to rattle your bones, test your nerves, and keep you on your toes.
Racing the 10 Miler / Women class for Wicked Wash Racing, Maureen Fagan took home a 2nd place podium finish!
Thanks to all of the volunteers, Gettysburg Bicycles, and the Volvo Construction Equipment for putting on another edition of a wonderful race in Michaux State Forest.
Results: 2015 10 Mile Maximus Results
2nd place at Michaux Maximus 10 miler 🙂 First time riding at Michaux and it started with more then a mile rocky climb combined with some very fun rocky downhill sections. Battled for first towards the end with my passing her on the downhills and her passing me on the uphills. Race ended with at least a 2 mile uphill section so she took it. Love a tough but friendly competitive race. First race also with the new 2015 Specialized Rumor 29r and it fit perfectly, felt solid on the downhill and climbed every rock out there. Love that bike, thank you Specialized!!
