The 10th Annual Capital Region Road Race was a huge success! Over 400 cyclists competed, including Max Korus, the current US Elite Men’s National Champion. His BikeReg/Cannondale teammate Alister Ratcliff was the primary instigator in the Pro/1-2 race, starting a three man break for nearly 50 miles and then going solo the final time up Tracy Road. With just four miles to go, Ratcliff was less than 10 seconds ahead of the field, but he jumped with a counterattack by Eric Tremble (1K2GO) and then held off the hard-charging peleton up Jarvis Road for the win.
Congratulations to race promoter Paul McDonnell and his management team for a perfectly-run event! And kudos to all club members that competed or volunteered. Many compliments were received from race participants and spectators alike.
