2010 Ault Park Opener

The racing was fast… apparently doug burton of main street velo and rick hoeting of QCW locked horns on the final sprint. scott reacted with lightning fast reflexes and ninja rolling skills to avoid serious injury at 30± mph…

i put the video piece together to try and “figure out” what happened.

in numbers…

andrew taking lap 15 prime in 1st, scott 2nd and james 4th… andrew rounded out the day with enough points for 2nd place and scott “rolling on ground” pellegrini ends up in 8th. the race had approximately 70 people, it might be nice to split the cat 4 and 5’s apart for smaller groups…

micheal c cruising “A” group style…

Spring Valley Road Race – OSRS #5

Team Hungry represented well with seven riders at the Spring Valley  road race. Alex S, Andrew S, Kerry R, Michael C, Michael S, Scott P, and Zach C all raced in the harsh winds and cold rain on one of the more exciting, rolling, and turning courses of the series. The course seems best for all-rounders despite the short but hard uphill before the flat finish, which busted legs and lungs and split the lead groups before the line. Wind likely led to the crash in the 4’s that eventually brought Andrew Suchocki down hard -tearing two layers of jersey and even more layers of flesh off his shoulder hip and legs. Amazingly, Andrew got up to come in fast to finish behind the pack -he is healing well and ready to fight again. Top finishes of the day came from Zach snagging a 4th place in the CAT5’s, Michael C taking 5th in the 3’s, and Scott with a 6th place in the CAT4’s.
