Coal City Crit off to a FAST start!

Written By on April 24, 2018

The Coal City Criterium Series was off to a fast start tonight on Boxwood.  A shout out to our vollies who pulled through and swept up the corners for all of the riders; Peter, Lorrie, Janine, Graeme and Antonious.  Volunteers make these events happen, thank you.

With 19 riders out on the course and some strong winds, the word is that this was one of the fastest opening races we’ve had.  Kudo’s to the newbies on the course tonight, Stephan Mohan, Eric Rush, Kiyomi Schulz and Jesse Manor.

The race started out with two neutral laps which turned in to, (what felt like), full tilt ahead and on the 7th lap after the second corner Peter Mogg and Conner McGrady ended up on the ground.  The crash was minor and they both got back on their bikes, two laps later Conner left the race and Mr. Mogg was back in contention.  On the last lap, Peter was in the two-man break-away with Sean Lunny and managed to beat him out by .1 of a second, it was a photo finish. Thank you, Patrick, for getting us suited up with timing chips.

Way to crush it riders and see you on the road.
