The first race of the Coastal Carolina Off-Road Series (CCORS) is officially in the books. Let me start off by saying that just because the race is down east and close to the coast doesn't mean it will be flat and fast. The race took place in Havelock at the Piranha Pit on Cherry Point. The course was a six mile loop that was very deceiving. It was a great day for racing with the weather at sixty degrees and the start time of 2pm couldn't ask for better conditions.
I arrived about an hour before the race, got registered in the Single Speed Category and started prepping for the race. Once I was finally dressed in the Twin Six Metal race kit it was time to warm-up the engine for the eighteen miles ahead of me. Hooked up with a few guys from the Raleigh area and we rode about 2.5 miles of the course to get a feel for it since I had never been out there before. It was time for the racer's meeting to go over the rules and a general overview of what to look forward to in the course.
