Long, steady weekend rides and indoor trainer sessions were put to the test at first race of year, the Tidewater Classic Road Race in Williamsburg. In the Men’s Cat 3 race, Mike played the aggressor, closing down breaks and attempting his own, and when nothing stuck, Sean finished it off in style with a clear sprint victory. It was Sean‘s first win since upgrading to the 3s last year.
In the women’s field, Robin finished off an awesome day with a 2nd place finish with Jamie finishing safely in the bunch.
Sean‘s report is below:
Flat course of 40 miles with 2 small hills on each of the 4 laps. Tidewater is the first road race of the season. I did it last year and won the field sprint …… for 8th place. I was alone last year. Most of the guys in the Mens 3 field were alone also so it was very difficult to get people to pull back the 2 man break that survived the day or the 5 man break that got away in the final few miles.
