CCCX #3 45-plus 1, 2, 3, 4

By Geoff Drake

Mark, Dennis, and I headed off in gloomy skies Saturday afternoon for the third in this excellent race series. Dennis had success with an early breakaway in the last CCCX race, and so on the first lap he took another flyer in the company of three others. Before long they were out of sight, and Mark and I set about trying to neutralize things at the front. That was fun! However, one moment of inattention was all it took for Cale Reeder to attack and get away. He rode up to Dennis’s breakaway, stayed with them for a bit, then went on to a solo win. Strong guy! Dennis took third, sprinting from his small group.

I decided I didn’t want to get mixed up in a field sprint and took a flyer on the last lap, managed to hold off the field, and took fourth by myself.

So, we got third and fourth in our race, and Nils took second his race. Not a bad day for the boys in yellow! As our reward, Mark took us out in Ford Ord lands for some more self-flagellation in preparation for next weekend’s race. A fine day!

Way to go Geoff. I love it when those flyers work. Great effort!
