Midweek Club Tuesday Night Races

Early Race

18 Laps - 17.64 km - 36.4 km/h avg.

1. Dave Ellis (Team RACE) 29:00
2. Naomi Cermak (Hamilton CC)
3. Lori Kofman (CoachChris.ca)
4. Mauro Rizzaro (Pavan) all st.
5. Liza Miranda (Midweek CC)

Roads were dry and skies were clear for the late race. La Bicicletta's Merrill Collins and Jeff Schiller (Team RACE) went on the early attack and built up a 30 second lead before the lead started shrinking. Once the group was together the fireworks started. Pressure put on by Peter Morse (Jet Fuel), Tea RACE and La Bicicletta caused the pack to split halfway through the race, and the speed went up as riders desperatley tried to bride across to the leaders.

With 12 laps to go Jordie Kofman (CoachChris.ca) and Italpasta's Thorben Wieditz made a powerful move off the front, and it looked like they would stay away for the finale. Only La Bicicletta's TT specialist Darko Ficko was able to bridge across to the duo with 3 laps to go. But, the strain of the break had been too much on the escapees and the pack came together with 700m for a pack sprint and once again Heath Cockburn last weeks winner won the drag race to the line, passing Team RACE's sprinter Dan Lefebvre with 150 m to go, and Wieditz had also recovered enough to place third.

Thanks to Midweek's Craig Fagan and Dan Rothnie for set and take down and for marshalling the course and to Steve Hamilton from Madonna Wheelers for working the lap counter.
