The Guerra Duo takes home both the Women’s and Men’s Top Prize

Cambridge, WI-

 

The third stop on the WORS circuit was the Battle of Camrock on a beautiful and quite toasty Sunday afternoon. Wisconsin Off Road Series (WORS) presented by Trek alongside the Capital Off Road Pathfinders (CORP) set up a fast and hard course for all racers to enjoy. The track climbed up and down the CamRock County Park with sections of root’n’rocks and great hero dirt that would fulfill every racer’s dream.

 

The start of the Women’s Pro/Cat 1 race at The Battle of Camrock can sometimes be quite daunting as there is a brutal climb that gets every racer out of the saddle, but two riders in particular made it look like a cake walk. Lindsay Guerra(Vision Cycling) and Leia Schneeberger(Broken Spoke Racing) have had quite the friendly rivalry brewing up the past couple years but this season it’s in full swing. They continued to put on quite a show for spectators as they battled once again. After a lap of fierce climbing and strong descending, Guerra had just a small edge on Schneeberger and was able to ride away. After three hot laps, Guerra opened the gap over 2 minutes taking her first win of the season. Leia finished runner-up but it was close at the end as Neff Cycle Service’s Holly LaVesser was closing the gap. She was close but not close enough as she finished less than thirty seconds behind Schneeberger. Behind LaVesser finished Anna Ganju(Colectivo Coffee) in fourth and Anna Christian(Girlfierd) in fifth respectively.

 

On the Men’s side of the spectrum, it seemed that many struggled in battling the extreme heat. Off the start, Ben Senkerik(Team Extreme) and Pete Karinen(Broken Spoke Racing) won the hole shot but later the heat got the best of Senkerik while Karnien dropped out of the top five. Behind the hole shooter’s, Nathan Guerra(Vision Cycling), Issac Neff(Neff Cycle Service) and Caleb Swartz(Linear Sport/Trek)  developed a lead group with Cole House(Broken Spoke Racing) patiently waiting from the back. After Swartz suffered from a small mechanical, Neff and Guerra got away while House passed Swartz. After a couple laps, Guerra was able to pull ahead of Neff while House put in an effort to catch and pass Neff. Time was not on House’s side as the clock wound down and Guerra continued to keep his gap open. He finished on the top step with House in second. Neff took home the bronze while Swartz finished fourth. Rounding out the top five respectively was Corey Stelljes(Neff Cycle Service).
