And the Rain Held Off

Written By on May 9, 2018

The skies were threatening tonight but the rain held off for the third Coal City Crit. The pace was quick and the pack was smooth.

There was some great team work by Riverway Dental Racing when Kevin Park went on a flyer at lap 15, the bell rung for the prime on lap 16 and the pack let him go take it. But when it came down to the line Kevin still took the win of the night. It was a photo finish, that you can see HERE. Ian Hay was just a half a wheel behind that gave him 2nd. Peter Mogg (3rd), James Sage(4th) and Nathan Walsh(5th) were also in the breakaway group at the line.

Shout out to Amanda McRae for making it over from Tofino for the Crit tonight, glad you found us.

Tonight the volleys really pulled through, a big thank you to Shep for keeping an eye on that. At 4:30 there was the possibility we would have had to cancel the race tonight because of the lack of volunteers. The BOD rallied Miva members and family members and pulled through with more than enough volly’s for the night. Much gratitude to Graeme Copp, Peter McCaffery, Jim Brown, Shep Stewart, Lee Zavarise and Dwayne Schulz. And Mr. Burnham the night wouldn’t have happened with out you!

Until next week.
