Mike Aguayo’s consistency during the season paid off as he won the 2013 Marathon State Championship Series overall with another strong 2nd place finish.
He summed up the race on Facebook:
“Race update for family and friends who’ve been asking. Well… 2 burped tires, 3 wrecks, and of course stopped 2-3 times for mechanical trouble. Resulted in a very tired and bruised body. But did score me a 2nd place and overall champ for 2013 Texas marathon series. Feels great to have achieved my goal, but now it’s time to rest, at least for a couple of days.”
Mike had a very strong season and on the podium in every race. He leads the overall results by almost 80 points. Continue reading →
Nathan Winkelmann pulled out a commanding win in the Pro class last weekend. He also keeps the $50 he offered to anyone who would match his lap time.
Mike Schwarzkopf took 2nd in his class. He’s still a race behind the leaders in the overall results, but should make up for that at the next race. Adding Pay Dirt points to that will most likely secure the series title for him.
Andy Puentes cracked another helmet when he crashed just two miles before the finish line. He lost two spots, but still got 7th place.

Let me introduce you to the Bike Butterfly. It’s selling points…
• More visible – The BB’s 3.5 sqm wingspan makes you easy to see.
• Slow down fast – The ultra light nylon/kevlar fabric acts as a wind-break.
• Hard to forget – Once experienced, pedestrians will always look out.
‘Brrr’, I think sums it up. It was cold this weekend, 31 degrees when the first group headed out. Even though the cold weather caused problems for some of us, overall the team did great – again. Continue reading →
