Rumble and some Tumbles in the Jungle!

The Rumble in the Concrete Jungle is a one-of-a-kind event held at the USNWC in Charlotte NC featuring several disciplines of bicycle racing, each taking place in and around the drained whitewater channels of the world’s largest man-made whitewater river.A few of the team members participated in both the downhill event as well as the short-track race.

First we want to wish a speedy recovery to everyone that was injured in the event including team member Kelly Hudson who all had some pretty bad crashes during the event. Our thoughts and prayers are with you guys, heal up fast and see you back on the trails soon!

In the downhill open race team member Josh Strang took home a solid 3rd place result, with Kelly Hudson in 34th and Mike Tam in 46th in a tightly packed field of riders with tenths of seconds separating competitors.

Chris had this to say about his race. "My race went well and stayed out of trouble. Mike Tam offered to lead out the start and separate it out so I could stay safe. That caused Andrew Raab and I to get away really quickly. We basically worked with each other the entire race, he was super strong on the flat course and put some big power down on the gravel. He tried to drop me a few times but I was able to stay on his wheel without going maximum. With one to go I was able to make a winning move strait up the concrete wall to get by him and pull a gap. I drilled it all out for the next half a lap to stay away...felt pretty good."
