ORR Athletes Tearing it Up at Cycling Races!

Congrats to ORR Cyclists for some incredible racing the last few weeks at several events.
James Engle and Clint Hankla raced the Fayetteville Stage Race and had good races, despite numerous mechanical issues. The race consists of 2 road races plus a short time trial. Clint finished the first Stage (road race) with the pack, the second stage (the TT) he finished in 13th place, and finished the weekend out with a 12th place overall finish in the Cat 3 Men's. James started well on the first day and stayed with the pack in the Cat 4 Men's only to break a spoke in the final sprint. :-( He raced well in the TT, finishing in the top half of his category. He was feeling good on the third stage (road race), but had a flat tire and last the pack. He fought his way back into the race and was able to finish with the second pack. Way to go James and Clint!
Five ORR athletes raced the Ronde Von Manor Road Races this weekend and had great races. Mandy Heintz raced both Saturday and Sunday road races, and Kathy and Terry Garrett raced one each.
Mandy races on the Shama Cycles Team, and finished 2nd place in the Women's Cat 4 on Saturday and 1st place at the Sunday road race! Kathy Garrett raced Saturday in the Cat 4s, and finished 9th out of over 20 riders. Terry Garrett raced Sunday and finished 8th in the Cat 5 men's category. Audrey Manchester and Connor Barry raced in the Juniors' Category as part of the Southern Elite Team and did well. Audrey is coming back from being quite sick, so she was happy just to be back out there mixing it up. Connor helped his teammate get the win and finished second overall. Way to ride, ORR!
