Over 50’s Crit Race 6/11/2013
The boys did a great job this round with Dave C riding strong at the right times claiming both preme sprints(who said this whippet could not sprint), well the first one was in a small break and the 2nd one saw Dave just ride off the front, as he does.
Kym C was having his first race this season and was doing well during the race following some moves and I hear did a big leadout on the last lap for the bunch sprint.
Shane and BB were always looking at the right move to be in and it happened after the 2nd preme when BB got in the winning move with Watters and Nashie. The 3 riders put the hammer down for a couple of laps and the gap grew to half a lap and then it was a game of saving enough for the finish. In the run for the line, BB let Watters lead into the straight thinking he could come around before the line but had to be happy with 2nd as Watters was too strong.
Meanwhile Shane was putting his sprint to the test coming home in 7th for some more good points for the team.
We are sitting in 3rd overall after 3 rounds and with a small break before the next race, will come out with guns a blazing on the 25th!
