Ellsworth Powers the Navy Special Warfare Flyin’ Frogs Team to Victory at the Suzuki 24 Hour National Point Series race in Conyers, GA.
The Navy SEAL Special Warfare Team won their class and came in second overall with 30 laps completed, coming in 11 minutes behind the overall winners. Coming off a third place finish at Temecula in April, the Flyin’ Frogs were led by the sub-50 minute lap times of Mike Everett on his Evolve and the consistency of team captain Eric Skalski and Ted “chainbreaker” Bair on Truths. For this race, the SEALs were also backed by civilian Nate Sibly who posted the top 2 fastest laps of the race. Their next race will be back in CA for the 12 Hours of Temecula on June 14.
In the women’s solo division Ellsworth rider Liz Baumgardt-Kays returned to the podium with a second place finish on her Truth.
Micah Horsham was the winner of the Ellsworth Lap Challenge where racers test ride an Ellsworth to see how their lap time can improve with the benefits of Ellsworth’s Instant Center Tracking suspension. Racing an Epiphany for the first time, Micah improved his previous lap time by over three minutes to win the Ellsworth Lap Challenge.
