Farragut KnoxieCross success


- Alan Sloan/farragutpress
With the competition approaching, Sean Eidmiller, a 37-year-old Farragut resident and KnoxieCross bike racing series participant, negotiates a dismount barrier obstacle during his 30-minute CX4 KnoxieCross Race No. 5 in McFee Park Saturday morning, Feb. 20. Eidmiller, a 1990 Farragut High School graduate who was 2009 Southeastern Regional Series mountain biking Sport Class series champ in just his second full year in the sport, finished third among a 17-man field Saturday.

But Eidmiller, second in KnoxieCross CX4 series points, came back Sunday, Feb. 21, and captured first-place in Race 6 among a field of 19. While 44 male and female racers participated in eight categories Saturday from children to adult professionals, 57 did the same Sunday as part on an eight-race KnoxieCross series during February — two races at the same Knox County site each weekend — sponsored by Tennessee Bike Racing Association. “This is good kinda off-season training,” said Eidmiller, whose Southeastern Regional Series season resumes in early April.
