Thanks to everyone for coming back to the Tosohatchee WMA again for the Christmas In Christmas AR. This has been such a great get-together for the past two years and the tradition kept rolling along in 2013.
 
The first Elite race of the 2014 season was a very interesting blend of speed and precision for the top teams. Things got started a little early too so penalties started after 3:40:00 as a little stocking stuffer for everyone.
 
On the podium there was a trio of typical Elite tandums. Primal Instinct and Good'Nuff blew through the course with no time for cookies or milk. Neck and neck most of the way even when they took different routes, both teams took no time at all to zero in on a CP and move on. The difference between first and second was basically the final transition from Bike to Boat. As Sport teams know, in a race this short getting in and out of the Main TA as fast as possible is extremely important.
 
Taking third just a little bit off the pace was We Blame Javan. It was a great showing for the guys who had great success in the Sport Division before making the jump up in class. When handing in their last punch card they expressed how intense a shorter race is. It was finally a time to rest which they hadn't had a moment to do once it started.
 
Rounding out the top five were two great Sport teams separated by a little more than three minutes. This time it was the Cow Tipping Dwarfs besting the Rum Runners turning the tables from their close battle a month prior at the Turkey Burn AR. Great performances by both teams who were just tiny mistakes away from being closer to the top.
 
The race wasn't all about the leaders of pack as the field from top to bottom was full of some of our favorite faces. Don't forget about our under 16 year-old racers (all girls) on The Lightning Thieves, The Stars, and Team Ashley who will actually start the year on top of the Premier Point Series.
 
All in all thank you to everyone for coming out and enjoying another Christmas AR in Christmas, FL with us. Have a great holiday season and we look forward to seeing all of you outdoors in 2014.
 
P.S. Don't forget the promo code "merry" is good for 15% off any future race and is good until 12/31/13.
