The 2018-19 TAB Winter Warrior Series reached its halfway point at Heritage Park in Adrian this past Saturday. Over the course of the last 11 weeks, 236 riders have headed out into everything from 19 degree ice-grinders to 47 degree spring-like mornings to enjoy all that Northwest Ohio/Southeast Michigan roads and trails have to offer.
At the tilt, things are tightly-bunched in the standings with Chris Crandall and Mary Lissfelt leading the way with 100% (35) minutes. Last year's runner-up John Wodarski trails slightly at 33 minutes after missing Winter Warrior 1, the Packo's Ride. Greg Rogo and Terry McCutcheon round out the Top 5 with 32 and 31.55 minutes respectively. Nate Burks, Mike Troxell, John Lissfelt, and the perennial duo of Hubert Backes and Rick Metcalf make up the Top 10.
This week Winter Warrior 12 will take us to Oak Openings and the Beach Ridge Trail for some single-track MTB fun. The group will meet at the Cannaley Parking Lot on Rt 64 just south of Airport Hwy in Swanton OH and they will head out promptly at 9:00am. MTB or fat bikes are recommended.
Come on out and join in the fun. Anybody can be a Winter Warrior!
