Victorville Road Race
Yash Gokul, Tyler Chairsell, Andy Erickson, Shannon Larsen, Steven Keltie and Zac Harpin line up for this one. Relatively flat course with good pavement, the exception being a short technical neighborhood section with horrible pavement. Solid race plan and executed flawlessly until the final lap, unfortunately Andy washes out a dusty turn. This splits the group that is left; Shannon makes the front group, Yash and Zac are caught behind but manage to chase back on. It comes down to Zac leading Yash out for the win and Yash flats in the final kilometer! Zac recovers from the effort and seals 2nd with Shannon rolling in for 7th place.
Taylor Sisson lines up for the Cat 3 later in the day(temps over 100 at this point) and with neutral support not that well organized the excessive heat gets the best of him… we are glad he is safe and didnt push himself to the point of no return.
Victorville Crit Cat 3
Another scorcher in the high desert. A 3-man break gets away, several attempts to bridge but the break sticks. Taylor manages to roll in for 9th place.
Another great weekend for the Plaid Army! Solid riding boys!
