Two great races were offered up to the riders this past weekend in State Center for the Rose Festival. The Rose Festival Crit on Friday night got the action started with Saturday’s road race making for a balanced weekend.
Competition tightened in both the Men’s Elite Team and Individual competitions as Jared Osterloh, Zealous Racing clawed closer to leader Mattias Perret, ICCC, who sits just 2 points ahead of Osterloh. Brian West, Bikes2You/World of Bikes, remains in 3rd but lost a little ground. The Elite Team competition remains a heated 4 way battle with Zealous Racing tieing for the lead with ICCC with American Equity just 2 points back. B2U, WOB earned the most points of the weekend at 15 and now sits within 10 points of the lead.
Due to problems with the scoring of the Cat3s in the Criterium, we have yet to award any points to that category.
