Planet Bike’s own Mark LaLonde took the overall in the Men’s Cat 1 / Pro Field in Iola, WI Sunday, May 17th. The Planet Bike / GT team rider outpaced the star-studded lead group eventually having to out sprint his brother Jesse at the finish line. This was Mark’s second win ever at a WORS event, a 12-race series which claims to be the largest mountain bike series in the United States. The 25 mile course consisted of rolling hills, open ski trails, and sandy wooded single track. “The course was fast and furious,” Mark stated in an impromptu interview. “The single track was great. It was everything I had hoped and dreamed that it would be.” Mark will continue the series May 31st in Rhinelander, WI.
