ABR Westlake Village Masters Road Race
ABD's Marilyn Powell "did the double" this weekend as she won the Women's 30/40/50 road race at Westlake Village on Saturday and then went on to take the same title at the Kenosha Criterium Sunday!
Kenosha Fall Criterium:
ABD'er Bob Marshall is no longer a dark horse in the Masters 50+! Bob launched a late attack in the closing laps of Sunday's race and quickly built up a 250 meter lead by burying himself in the headwind section. Unfortunately, on the final lap he let up just enough for LOT rider Richard Adamczyk to catch him on the line- but Bob still hung on for 2nd!
In the Men's 3 race Steve Parrish and Theo Quednau raced aggressively all day in the hopes of putting a rider in the breakaway, but after six or seven hard attacks the elastic between the groups snapped and the pair were caught back in the field. Fortunately, the two were able to conserve enough energy to take 3rd and 4th in the field sprint and 6th and 7th overall.
Chicago Cross Cup: Round 1
Props to Sue Semaszczuk and Gina Kenny, who placed 5th and 7th in the first round of the Chicago Cross Cup at Jackson Park. The pair are off to a great start with six events total in the series this year, including ABD race at Sunrise Park on October 28th!
ABD Cross Captain Jim Nowak placed a very respectable 11th place in an absolutely HUGE Masters 40+ field- almost 40 riders!
Next up: Carpentar Park on October 21st.
Tour de St. Genevieve:
That Josh Carter sure heals quickly. Just three weeks after suffering a Class 2 shoulder separation, Carter took the win at the TdStG Road Race this past Saturday. And rather than take it easy and just wait for the sprint, he spent almost 70 miles off the front with two other riders!
