Bonebender 3 / 6 Mountain Bike Race



File this post under the 'better late than never' category.

Two weeks ago three members of Team Colavita / Parisi Coffee headed out to the Clinton Lake mountain bike trails in Lawrence, KS to participate in the 3rd annual Bone Bender 3 / 6 mountain bike race. This race was not for the faint of heart.

Jon Sink, Jon Peck and Adam Keck are quickly becoming the mountain biking power trio for TCPC.

All three entered the 3 hour solo category and while there were no podium performances each one of them honored the jersey on their backs and rode with confidence and grace, even when they were eating dirt on one of the seemingly endless technical sections of the course. Like i said, this race was not for the faint of heart.

Bone Bender is quickly becoming a flagship race of the local mountain biking scene, and for good reason. It's a top notch event with top notch competition. TCPC will definitely be there next year!
