2013 Chapel Crit Series - Race 1 Results

First we need to say a big "thank you" to Bob Grimm for taking pictures at our July 11th Chapel Crit Series Race. If you would like to check out the pictures Bob took check them out over at Shutterfly.

The 2013 Chapel Crit Series started out with a huge showing for the 'B' Race. The racing in the forty-five minute race was intense and saw two riders leaving the peloton only a few laps into the race. Those two racers, [names go here], went on to take first and second and leaving the Peloton to sprint for third place.

The top five finishers in the 'B' Race were as follows:
  1. Jacob Crew
  2. Ryan Cameron
  3. Bill Fletcher
  4. Brian Sharp
  5. Jim Smeltzer
The 'A' Race saw a light field because many of the regulars for this race were heading over to Youngstown to do the Tour of the Valley the next day. But just because the field was 'light' doesn't mean the competition wasn't!

For those of you that follow Strava out there it appears that Jeremy Grimm got the KOM tonight with an average lap speed of 28.2 miles per hour. That's moving!

The top five finishers in the 'A' Race were as follows:
  1. Jeremy Grimm
  2. Shawn Adams
  3. Steve Twining
There are only two more races this year. Don't miss this change to get a great training race in on a course that really lets you work on your cornering skills!
