2016 Hill Country Challenge!

The TMBRA XC series continued this past weekend out in Comfort, and Team IPA was there to represent. Several podium and top ten finishes – always good to see! Great work by Carrie Arnold, Gary Liardon, David O’Bryan, Deak Mihaly, Daniel Morales and Cooper Sellers.

Thanks to The Light Co for the great pictures.

Cindy Abbott-Wood was wearing the team colors and took 2nd place in the Cat 1/Pro women’s event. Sadly, Cooper DNF’d with a flat in the Men’s Cat 2. We also had Mark Logrbrinck, Kyle Olson, Molly Wolf, Carla Jennings, Stephanie Childs and Dawn Skinner helping out with food, parking area and other thankless tasks that happen at races. The team tent was busy!
