Mar 19th

Cool temperatures, wind, and rain replaced the sunshine of the past few weeks at the Devo/Powerbar Spring Series today. The races covered the BC Cup Atomic Road Race course, giving riders a preview of the race scheduled for later this year.

In the A Group, a breakaway of 4 riders gained as much as 5:30 on the peloton, with the chase starting in earnest on lap 4 and 5 of the 12 lap race. Half-way through the race, a split of the field occured on the back side of the course, making the selection for the eventual race winners. The remnants of the breakaway were caught and with 2 laps to go, teammates Christian Meier and Brad Fairall (Symmetrics) attacked the lead group, with Meier and Fairall riding the last lap in the lead together. Larry Zimich (Coastal) took third spot in front of Sean Dawson (Trek/Red Truck Racing) and Keith Stark (Rocky Mountain/Business Objects).
