Washington County Trail Sharks finish strong in Eau Claire | By Julie L. Willmas

Nick Skaalen as he earns a top 10 finish.

 

 

Oct. 3, 2018 – Washington Co., WI – On Sunday, Sept. 30 the Trail Sharks-Washington County Mountain Bike Team was in Eau Claire.  The weather was perfect for the racers as it was cool and misty, the trail was flat and fast with a rocky downhill and two soft uphills.

This course was not something the Trail Sharks are used to.  However the athletes did a great job holding on and racing fast and staying in close proximity to the pack.

Many of our athletes found each other on the course and pushed their teammatees as they raced to the finish line.

Nick Skaalen, Mikey Spangenberg, and Tanner Schultz all bettered their place from previous races this season.
