Doin’ it like a Bruce, and he still wins the round. The 2017 Patrick Cup International. A world renowned celebration of merriment, misbehavior and mayhem, is kickin’ it slideways into the year end finale.

Saturday, July 8th was the second running of the Tour de Flagler. The 30+ mile Tour entails two of Central Florida’s premier MTB trails with a bit of road, sidewalk, multi-use trail, and dirt doubletrack connecting the two.
