Cantua Creek Road Race - 2.13.10

posted Feb 15, 2010, 9:32 AM by Tyler Wertenbruch

The rolling hills were verdant green and the sun was shining as the Men’s 5 races began the first of two 25 mile laps with a hill climb finish. Me, Brad Cannella, Dustin Ransom and Josh Kessler lined up at the start and began. The first 20 miles Josh road toward the front and stayed in the mix. Dustin, Brad and I sat in and watched everything from the back.

There were a couple of sketchy moments, this being a “5”s race but we all managed to stay upright. The hill on the first lap dropped a couple of riders but everyone held on until the way back on the final lap. With about a mile left and with the hills ramping up, I moved to the front and with 200 meters to go a Sierra Pacific rider attacked hard and I tried to jump on his wheel but he managed to pull away winning the race and I held on 6th. Brad finished 22nd, and Dustin and Josh both had pack finishes. Nice job guys. Pine Flat Race report is next.
