Race: Watermelon Crit
Date:June 3, 2017
Location: Piscataway, NJ
Riders: Danielle F. and Sarah H.
Even though the forecast called for clear skies, riders in the Watermelon Crit woke up to a rainy dreary morning. Luckily, as time neared for Danielle and Sarah to head to the start the skies cleared and the sun began to shine. From the start, it was apparent the small group of Cat 4/5 riders were all very strong and ready for a fast race. The course is short with 3 turns and a small incline in to the final turn. A few attempts were made to attack but the rest of the pack was soon to follow. It was going to be very hard to get away from this group! With only a few laps to go, the pace increased drastically and a few riders were stuck behind a gap that was forming. Sarah hung in to contend for the final sprint taking 4th place and just missing the podium. Post race all riders could agree on one thing: this race was a blast!
Results: Sarah 4th
