Well, last Saturday saw the latest addition to our spring fling race series. Despite the ugly weather bringing out a limited number of riders, the competition was still hot!
Iona was dry when the group got there, with a few teams doing their usual Saturday workout. After a few minutes of letting everyone cool down and shiver at the start the race got underway. A tail cross from the South kept you feeling like you were strong all the way to the turnaround, and that's when you discovered that, after that turn around, the "tail" of the cross became a very evil head.
The rain held off, and we saw some very impressive times for the conditions. Derrick Lee posted an incredible time of 16:20, almost a minute faster than the next fastest rider, earning him top spot among the guys. Celeste posted the leading women's time with an awesome 19:02!
Waiting in the cold for the start
Without further adieu, here are the times and points (hopefully I got them right) for the race.
