Land Park Crit Race

March 24th, 2010

Mstr 30+: 100 riders; Attacks from the gun with a lot of yo-yo-ing mid pack. TDodds gets in the winning break with 9 laps to go, not sure if he can hang so he pulls up. Bunch sprint for 5th- Dodds and Reuss- top 20, Norine- top 30.

Mstr 35+: Big Dilard makes it to the Mstr35+ 4’s race on time with a few minutes to spare. Big D is feeling good today and racing well. He picks his way thru 70 + pack and positions himself in top 6 coming into the last corner-great position. It’s a long sprint to the finish- big D is in 3rd place with 50 meters to go. A few riders pass and Dillard finishes in 12th place. A great finish and a good way to start the season!

Pro 1/2: Norine and Reuss question if this is a good idea. 67 field-1 after Gerlach hits the pavement hard (he won the mstr race) Pinned from the gun-pack is strung out. OHC looks strong thru the race-Dodds and Norine look fresh as daisy’s- Reuss is still questioning. Tdodds- makes the winning break of 5 with 9 laps to go, Norine and Reuss patrol the pack- kind of. Dodds looks at his wattage- sees 500+ and decides to come back to the safety of the pack. Norine- feeling fresh goes to the front with 2 to go and decides to string it out. Reuss coming to his senses hangs and leads Norine out for a top 20ish finish. Dodds hangs in after a great race for 30’s.
