There were plenty of crashes and excitement both days of racing. Brooksville Bicycles provided the race mechanic and Saturday was definately a busy day. We were set up right on the course with a great view of everything. Part of the race festivities was the police/fireman rally. A member from each department volunteered to assemble a bicycle and race to the end of the course and back. Brooksville Bicycles had the pleasure to work with a City of Brooksville Policeman in this very exciting activity. Sadly, we conceded the win to the Brooksville Fire Department but everyone had a great time.
