Downer's Grove: Keeley takes 4/5 Win, Carter 2nd in Elite Nats

Congratulations to ABD'ers Tim Keeley and Josh Carter for their trips to the podium at the Downer's Grove Cycling Classic.

On Saturday Tim took the "W" in a rainy, Masters 30+, 4/5 event and wrote up a great report on his and Jay Corgiat's well-laid plans for the race.

In Sunday's Men's Elite National Crit Championships, Carter rode tough in a 2-hour crashfest to sprint to within a half-wheel of the win. Unfortunately, a tangle with veteran Steve Tilford in the final turn slowed Carter down just enough that Dan Halloway was just able to get by him.
Carter was smart to never drift further back than 15th place in the race, and stayed in the top 10 the entire last 5 laps.

Props go out to two other ABD Top 10's finishes this weekend: Theo Quednau placed 8th in the Junior Men's race and Jeff Schroetlin finished 10th in the Masters 1/2/3 on Saturday.
