As per usual, the group split on the hill on Route 6. A good sized chase group formed at the top of the hill and was able to catch-up but only due to fortuitous timing of the red light at Penn’s Hill Rd. The remainder of the riders were unable to regain the lead.
The folks started dribbling off the lead group as the pace surged on Bowling Rd. These groups were never able to regain the lead group but there was some consolidation after the hill on Budd’s Creek Rd.
Here are the averages I have:
Chase 1: 21.7
Chase 2: 21.2
Congratulations to Scott Walker who managed to stay with the lead group. Scott just started riding with us again this year after a long time away from fast riding due to injury. He has made an impressive recovery this year.
It was an another fun ride.
