while Staz sits comfortable in the group... Staz stayed with the group on a day where many riders were lapped or pulled out.
TK drags Larry Nolan into the headwind with one to go... Larry rode his wheel for the whole lap and came around him with 100 meters to go. Nolan launched his move with four to go. TK covered it with three to go and did the majority of the work. Nolan caught TK off guard with his bluffing... feigning exhaustion. Lesson learned.
AWfoSho gets pipped at the line by one of the AMD Masters after a 350 meter sprint into a headwind out of the first chase to take 4th on the day. AWfoSho had glued himself to Holloway's wheel with three to go, using elbow, hip, and, yes, even his head at one point to defend the wheel. DHolla was blown from chasing TK and Nolan and aborted his sprint at 350 meters leaving AWfoSho to go long into a stiff headwind.
and El Gigante claims the third spot in the field sprint... probably somewhere around 15th overall. Riggs led the sprint out with El Gigante not quite getting his wheel. Still, the Stanford rider was the only one to come around El Gigante.
Not a bad day at the races!
