Casey Crit

Casey Crit went off on Sunday. Beautiful day for racing, 70's with a slight breeze and low humidity on the campus of Christopher Newport University of off Warwick Blvd and just down the street from Michael Vick's High School (Warwick HS).

Let's start with the CAT 5. Manimal vs. Leopard (you'd have to have been there). Both strong riders. It came down to the final turn where the Manimal got him on the inside and took a 5 bike length win. Congratulations to Skinny Steven for pulling out another victory and scoring points for the team. Mike Brown and Joe Younkin finished in the pack but haven't seen the official results to see if they got in the top 15. Of course what's a CAT 5 race without carnage. On the final lap, two guys (Team Nature's Path and Casey) went down hard. Hope they get better soon.

CAT 4 had a good showing of AAB teammates in the race. The pace was fast and a 3 man breakaway held their 20+ second gap. There was crash on the final few laps that spread the field out farther and Mitch blew a tire on the second to last lap.

CAT 3 had Andy finishing in the pack. There was a 2 man breakaway that stuck.

I'll post official results when I see them.
