All of the races were active from the get-go. The dirt section alone in the 1-2-3 race claimed 25-30 bottle casualties on the first lap. Piece of advice... always keep a bottle in the jersey before a dirt road section (preaching to myself here). Bottles sliding left and right proved to be more hazardous than the actual pot holes. The new addition of a drainage ditch resulting in major bunny hop action proved to be an added piece of fun/fear/pleasefortheloveofallthatisgooddonotcrashinfrontofme to the race as well.
Almost all of the races ended splintered by the end; however, there was a massive field sprint within the cat 3 race. NCVC brought the pain train and claimed the 3rd through 6th place finishes (two men had slipped off the front in a break). Very impressive for any team to finish in such a dominating fashion. Major kudos to the 17yr sensation Shane Scoggin old who broke away in the Cat 3 field and held off the entire pack! Two words, Beast. Mode.
The winning move in the 1/2/3 race formed on lap one with a breakaway of one, then two, then three, then ten(ish). They were never seen again. Lengerman however, had quite the pain cave face at the finish line (see right).
Overall it was a great weekend of race put on with great support by an awesome team, NCVC. Thanks to all who made this race possible! Here are a few photos from the weekend:
