Results North and South of Mason Dixon

2 05 2011

Team Bike Doctor had a great weekend of racing racking up some good results and even better times.

On Sunday at The Bunny Hop Criterium in Suitland, Maryland, Bike Doctor represented in the Masters 35 race being aggressive launching riders in breaks one after the other until one finally stuck at the end. Scott Giles slipped off the front with about five kilometers to go soloing away to for Bike Doctor’s first victory of the year with the money shot. No one in sight.

Pete Warner also grabbed a preme and 8th place. The rest of the guys represented the front of the race countering and covering moves all day long.

In the Masters 3/4 race, Steve Fife represented the move of the day and placed 5th in a 7 man break. With a few top sprinters in the move, including Jose “no no upgrade” Nunez, we were rooting for Steve to pull out some magic tricks. Robb Hampton charged the field and took 2nd in the field sprint for 9th place and took a preme of his own earlier. The rest of the crew were victims of the carnage on the course.

The guys also represented the 1/2/3 race but tired legs, crashes, and other superfast maniacs took chances of racking up more results.

Meanwhile, Sunny Gill made a solo trip up north to The Tour of Eprhata. Sunny, off the heals from several great results at Sea Otter Classic in California, kept the momentum going in the Men’s 3/4 race. After getting dropped from the break in the road race, Sunny used smart tactics and was able to place 5th putting him in great position for the overall. The next day, Sunny took to the Mt. Pain Time Trial and landed 14th.  Knowing he needed a result in the afternoon’s criterium, Sunny again used his strength and tactics to his advantage and placed 5th netting him 7th overall for the weekend. Congrats to Sunny for a great weekend.

The team looks forward to Fort Ritchie, Turkey Hill, and the Deep Blue Time Trial next week.
