Race of the West report
Ed Dunne's race
Forty hilly miles combined cat. 5, 60+ and women.
Halfway into the race Ed bridged up to the winning break of 7-8. Near the end legendary 62 year old Dave Viney left the group and towed an unnamed cat 5 to first.
Ed got 2nd (and a bronze metal) in the field sprint for 3rd.
Good show Ed.
Kerry's race. 50+ men
Seventy hilly miles. Thirty eight starters. Hill challenged Big Belgian Lambert Vaas pulled the plug at 60. After 69 miles and 69 painful attacks/surges it came down to an uphill headwindy sprint (more like a stagger). Imagine 15 arthritic, cramping Lemmings trying to throw themselves UP a cliff. The Dogg got 5th and $35.
Thank goodness this is the last decent road race on the Florida calendar. Time for a rest. Time to just run around inside the fenced yard a while.
