Lake Auburn Road Race

Team Bikeman - Race Reports

At the start Andrew took off like a shot as the road quickly turned uphill. I found myself towards the front of a fast chasing pack as the road kept climbing and climbing. Unfortunately, as the climb progressed, and I began to gasp from the effort, a gap appeared between myself and the chase group. When the road briefly leveled, I chased hard to get back onto the train; that was when disaster struck. I took a hard right hand bend directly through a sand patch, and was instantly sliding across the tarmac on my pedal, right brake lever, right hand, and butt cheek. I quickly remounted and continued the chase, but, as blood dripped off my hands, I realized my bars were out of allignment and shifting quite dodgey. So, in short, I packed it in--all and all a pretty miserable outing. At least Andrew Freye went on to finish a strong second place over the strung out field.
