It was a soggy Mother’s Day weekend in Michigan as racers lined up for the 6 and 12 Hours of Addison Oaks on May 13th. Three days of continuous rain and the promise of two more to come gave a gloomy start for the solo and team riders. “The weather radar looked like someone flushed a toilet over Michigan,” said Santa Cruz Syndicate endurance pro Mark Hendershot.

Hendershot scored a decisive win in the 12-hour, completing 17 laps of the 5 mile course. “This course is basically flat and usually fast, but today it was pretty slow," he said. "The mud was absolutely horrible. I’ve never seen so many broken derailleurs.”
