March and April Race Results

Finally, spring, and the start of a new racing season. A lot of roller and trainer miles over the winter replaced needed road miles, and the time has come to put them to use.
A few races have taken place, and a few Stark Velo members have saddled up and stretched their legs. So far, early results are encouraging.
Three members travelled to that state up north (Michigan) to race Barry-Roubaix, a 36 mile gravel road race. Racing on March 22nd over some slushy and difficult roads, with large entry categories, each one placed in the money. Pay outs went to the first five in each category. Scott Morman and Dave Jolin raced the single speed race, with Scott taking 2nd and Dave 5th.  Bill Fletcher entered the 61+ race, finishing 5th, barely losing a bunch sprint for 3rd and 4th.
