The 4.5 mile course twisted and careened around the park, taking the
riders by family cookouts with the smell of summertime foods hanging
in the air. Although the course boasted no super-technical downhills,
or gut-wrenching marathon uphills, it handed the racers
plenty. Uphills were short, but strenuous, and the downhills were
brief, giving the riders plenty of rolling flats to spin through.

In the Male Expert class, EJ Sigety(1:16:42) led from beginning
to end, but he had no time to relax with Matt Humeston(1:17:09)
and Ben Klimas(1:18:58) nipping at his heels. Sigety and
Humeston were battling hard and close on the last lap, but the wiley
Sigety would not be denied successfully defending his win from the
previous year. For the Female Experts, Tiffanny Kenny(1:41:39)
had no trouble winning her class as she was the only woman who had the
mettle to pedal four laps.

After the race, the awards were bountiful, with cash prizes going to the top three expert finishers, and all top three class finishers having their pick at a great prize table. Thanks to Dave Lawson for putting on a great event, and thanks to all the Moms who made it happen!
