In tonight's event, the groups stayed together a bit longer as the wind was somewhat less severe than usual but every corner still saw a couple of riders blown out the back door. Although the handicap group had almost a full lap advantage, nobody was able to bridge to the scratch group.
On a safety note: IF SOME RIDERS INSIST ON RIDING IN THE LANES RESERVED FOR CARS, WE ARE IN DANGER OF BEING SHUT DOWN! There were three police cruisers in the vicinity and all it needs is one complaint from another road user and we are toast. Just imagine that there's a smelly canal on the left of you. And keep well clear of it.
Faces seen for the first time this year: Michael Moore, Gears team mentor, Fernando Estavez, brother of rapid junior Alejandro, and master B sprinter, Aubrey Bryce.
For the first time we have a tie for first place, with Heath working his way back up after losing the leader's jersey last week when he DNF'd. This year's competition is shaping up to be the closest since the series began 5 years ago!
