Biketoberfest at RCP

Biketoberfest, our Team’s theme for the DORBA Fall Series at Rowlett Creek Preserve, was a huge success! Bearded Women Racing went above and beyond, setting up a show down with Big Pig at Johnson Branch next week. Many of our team members came dressed in their best German attire, especially Benjamin Leach who looked gorgeous as Hilda, Hans’ froulien from Hamburg. Hans and Mando stepped it up a notch and raced in their lederhosens. Our members also donated food, swag, and time to make this event fun for all.

Between bike tossing, arm wrestling, and eating delicious bratwursts, many of the BWR members raced as well. About half of Rowlett Creek Preserve passes through trees with some areas that are tight and twisty.  The rest is out in the open with some fast, straight field sections.  Most of the trail is flat with only a few relatively short climbs, which made for a very quick race! Some of our members who made the podium in their categories include: Keith McDonald, Phil Hollings, James Henson, Brandon Schrader, Mike D’Aurelio, Melissa Dalton, and Brittany Smith.
