Ontario Crit Series
The boys headed to Ontario, Ca for some Sunday racing in some hot conditions. Andy Erickson, Taylor Sisson, Scott Winzeler and Tony Rago make the trip to throw down with So. Cal racers. Scott Winzeler lines up solo in a field of 30 or so riders for his second race of the day in the 50+ field. Plan was to just follow moves and be in position to go with something if it looked promising. Scott makes a move with about 10 laps to go and gets away. He establishes a nice gap and another rider bridged, lap cards come out the two have about 15secs on the field. The two were working well together but were caught at the last corner on final lap. Scott digs deep and brings it to the line for a photo finish! Barely edged out and takes 2nd!
Andy and Taylor line up with 55 or so riders in the 30+ 3/4 race, plenty of attacks but nothing really sticks. The pace stayed pretty hot throughout the entire race and Taylor finished just outside the top 10.
Next up Tony and Scott line up for the 45+ in a field of 35 or so guys. Weather is approaching 90 degrees now and Scott is on his 3rd race for the day! Plenty of attacks right from the whistle and although some looked to stick, the field just reeled them back in. With 5 laps to go Scott and Tony work to stay up front for Tony to have a shot at the final sprint. The pace heats up and then the field explodes headed into the final two corners of the race. Scott gets boxed in and that leaves Tony freelancing for wheels and he is able to hold em off for the win!
Last race of the day is the Cat 3 for Taylor and Andy in a field of 40 or so guys. The temperature is now approaching 100 degrees and no one was really motivated to make huge moves. There were a few attempts but all of the breaks got pulled back. Our boys remained in the mix and were positioned perfectly, in the top 5, headed into the last lap. A single rider got away and stayed away for the win and headed into the final corner things got dicey. Our boys ended up with a pack finish.
Solid racing guys and way to slug it out!!
