The First Annual Scott-Tucker-Scott “Gentlemen’s Race” (though it's not exclusive to gentlemen) was Sunday. The unsupported team time trial bicycle race covered a course of 78 miles through the farmland of rural Arkansas.

Teams of five members each, made up of both ladies and gentlemen, wound their way from the Plantation Agriculture Museum (worth a visit in itself) in Scott, to Tucker and back to Scott on quiet country roads. The road surfaces were varied, and even included some gravel stretches. But the gravel parts were packed and caused no road-rash for the riders. Except for the frequent flatland headwinds, these roads are wonderful rides for the bicycle racing hammerheads and the more casual cycling enthusiasts alike.

Ten teams competed in this year’s race. In their order of finish: Frown Fighters; TWAT; Gearhead Cycle House; Tuckered Out; Short Bus; Road Ninjas; 901 Racing; Three Men, a Babe and a Baby; Leborne Ultimatum; and Pickle Posse. Congratulations to all the team members for participating in the inaugural ride, and for braving the winds and the chilly temps that day. With the growing appreciation for cycling in Central Arkansas, the Scott-Tucker-Scott “Gentlemen’s Race” promises to become a highly anticipated annual event.
