Last Race of the Year

Today was the last race of the 2015 season.  Meredith and I lined up at the Doylestown Criterium Race.  It's a great downtown course that has some really technical elements... a screaming fast descent with three turns, and a slow and steady uphill climb to the finish.

We were streaming live on the interwebs, so Meredith and I made sure to show our faces, kit colors, and sponsors tat the front as often as we could.  We launched some attacks, covered some moves, and raced hard.  In the end, a break of three got away.  Without enough team power in the peloton to chase, their lead stretched out of sight pretty quickly.  So, we settled in for the finish.

It was a tough race with a few additional attacks coming from those remaining in the field, but the group stayed together to the final climb.  In the end, I finished 10th and Meredith 14th.

Some videos for your viewing pleasure, thanks to Mr. Porkchop...

Not a bad way to end the season, methinks.

As always, we are so incredibly grateful for our amazing sponsors and their support.  Without you, we could not conceive of racing as often and as hard as we do.
