The Jungle Habitat MTB Race is also the NJ State Championship race and Mike has really been training and racing well leading up to the race. Mike spoke to his coach following his 2nd place finish, "1:23 out of first. Cruised around in 1st place for about 1/2 the 1st lap, got caught in a rocky section, then went back-n-forth with the group. I was more fit, they were more skilled. Got slower as my upper body fatigued. Fun race regardless. 2nd in the State because 3 of the guys ahead of me were from NY. I put 2 min into the guy who won the last race.”
Way to go Mike!!!
