Team Marty’s Victor Schepisi had a great weekend of racing. He won the NJ State Championship Cat 1 title at The Rumble in the Jungle H2H XC MTB race #3. Here’s a quick recap.
Jungle Habitat is known for punchy climbs, rocks and roots and with the rain the night before I knew I had a chance to win if I could stay upright. The start was a bit hectic but once the race settled down I knew I had to attack. I found an opportunity to pass, dropped the hammer and never looked back. The race was nearly two hours of pure torture with my avg HR reading 175 bpm. The last 15 minutes was the hardest mentally being so much can go wrong in a race with a flat or mechanical but my Trek Superfly FS didn’t miss a beat. It took me 2 years of hard work to win one of these races. I was close many times, but this weekend it all came together.
