"I had been so busy with my own events, there's been no time to train for long distances. So when a friend asked me to race this 50 miler, of course I said yes. We put together a 1st time team and threw all our new bikes (thanks to the greatest bike store on Earth, Epic Bike Store in Kansas City) on the disco and headed to Missouri. Can I just say although we didn't have the best finish time, I had the best time! The area was gorgeous and mtn bike trails INTENSE. Don't think I would head out for just any race right after a week in Mexico, I knew Kelly's would be great--and was right. Can't wait for next year! Off Road Fixation--you rock!" Team LA (Lake Adventures) - Promoter of the Milford Lake Extreme

"We really enjoyed the race. It was fun to race in an area unfamiliar to us. I'm sure we will be back up to ride the trails sometime. Thanks for all your hard work, we understand what it takes to put on a race, no matter how many teams are involved. We've been telling all our adventure race friends about it and plan to be back next year." Cynthia - Team Kuat

"That’s a nice area for a race, and I’ll be back for sure." - Steve Dietiker - Advengineers

"I wanted to let you know I had SO MUCH fun at the AR this past weekend. You did a wonderful job and I really look forward to doing more races you put on! Thanks for everything and please tell Judith and your girls thank you for volunteering!!" - Amanda Clausen, Team Off Road Fixation (OK this one might be a little biased - nobody said I was fair and balanced)

"Kelly, you are one crazy, sexy, cool guy...and you dance better than anyone on the race course" - Judith Sumner (oops...Judith just walked in and caught me making this one up! She says it's all true...but the dancing part)

Our recent 9th place finish in the 28 Hour LBL Adventure will earn us 10 points in the USARA National Points Race (and Checkpoint Tracker points as well) which should move us back into the top 20 teams in the nation.

We had a fun race down in Kentucky last weekend at the inaugeral Land Between the Lakes (LBL) Adventure Race. We ended up taking 9th out of 21 very competitive four person 24 hour teams and 12th out of 34 overall. The area had been hit by a massive ice storm in January but they were still clearing brush in most of the park on race day and will continue for months to come by the looks of the place. We struggled throughout the race, bike whacking and hacking on occasion to make it through all the downed brush. Most trails we hit were open but a road or two had us stopping every 30 yards to climb over or around trees. They extended the length of the race to 28 hours and we took all but 20 minutes to cross the line. We all had a great time down there and we thank Bonk Hard Racing for another epic event.
