The first SERC of 2009 began on March 8th with a solid turnout of Endurance Factor clients.
Martin Cox raced in the Pro category where around 20 of the top Pro’s in the South Eastern region turned out. He took a respectable 7th place which marks an excellent start to his Pro career for 2009.
In the 19-29 Cat 1 category, Brent Hall and Steve Flynn battled for the top three places on the podium. This was Steve’s first race at the Cat 1 category. He showed his strength on the bike and placed 2nd only 1:30 behind the winner. Close behind in 3rd place was Brent, who was fighting illness throughout the week, but still managed to stay positive and get on top of the podium. Expect to see more podium finishes from both of these athletes throughout the summer.
