Powell on the Podium at Plattekill

Seamus Powell found himself on the podium in second place at that second stop of the Eastern State Cup Enduro series at Plattekill Mountain Bike Park.

“Plattekill Mountain offered up the raw and untamed trails,” Seamus recalls, “Its infamously noted to have for the second stop of the Eastern States Cup Enduro series. This was my first east coast enduro of the year. After a full day of practice Saturday in bone dry loose conditions, multiple broken bike parts and one gashed shin, I called it a day knowing Sunday would provide a completely different riding experience with rain in the forecast.”
Seamus continues, “I welcomed Sundays rain with open arm. The skies opened up and the Mountains ski lift broke down leaving the racers no choice but to climb the ski hill 4 times to complete the race. I had consistent, smooth and fast stages but was just nipped for the win after 13 minutes of racing. My Kenda Hellkat tires were incredible in the wet and sloppy conditions and I managed to keep my bike together for the race! That’s a feat in itself racing on that mountain.”
Great job Seamus, onward to ESC Enduro round 3 next week in Binghamton, NY
