Many folks coild not make this race due to injuries, sickness and schedules. Nevertheless, the team did a smashing job, especially Matt Jordan who folded his 2007 team bike in dramatic fashion. Fortunately Matt escaped with only a few abrasions and his frame has been repaired and will soon see action again. The big winners of the day were Janel Lodge continuing here dominance of the womens 35 + field with Kathleen Bortolussi coming in 3rd. Michelle Perez won the womens 45 + with a strong effort and Alex Work rode away from the mens 35 A group , just like last week.
Stella Carey rode with a cold and still made the podium in the elite womens cataegory at 4th.

Scott Chapin challenged for the win in the mens elite race against pro rider Andy Jaques-Mayne and wound up 2nd after a very hard race. He was followed by Ben Dodge in 9th , Jeff Patton in 16th and Dave Wyandt in 18th who had a crash and a wheel change late in the race.
Other results were Jon Mason in the 35 B race getting 3rd, still riding much stronger than last season. Mark Howland getting closer to the podium finishing 6th in the mens 45 A group , Jeff Traugott finishing in 7th in the mens 45 B group, and finally I finished 4th in the mens 55+. I didn't manage to get more photos as the pit area was very busy .
