There was a really good turnout Wednesday evening for this latest race in the Midweek C.C. series. The cooler weather and a straightforward course without the usual technical tour of the parking lot meant that most of the handicap group managed to stay with the 1/2's once they were caught.
Midweek's Peter Morse and welcome stranger Nat Faulkner both accumulated a raft of points over the early sprints and then left it to a couple of breakaway groups to try and eat into their early lead. With the final double points sprint still to go, it was anyone's race, with no les than five possible winners but at the line, MBRC's Irish import, Bryan Truman, surprised everyone by crossing the line first.
A welcome site was ex Jet Fuel strong man and the only rider to win the Midweek series twice,Heath Cockburn, testing his racinglegsafter a season -long absence. Good to see you back Heath.
