The pavement up Alpine Hill is now a year old and apparently even a year takes a little toll.  The winning times today failed to surpass last year’s efforts across most fields despite perfect weather and no wind.  Perhaps the air is a little denser in April compared to March…

Although the times were slightly slower,  familiar names ended up on top.  Bryan Dobes (CRCA/Blue repeated his win from last year in the Men’s 1/2 field in a time of 4:45 – 9 second down on his time last year.  BrittLee Bowman (CRCA/Stan’s NoTubes p/b EnduranceWerx) won the women’s 1/2/3 field after last year winning the 3/4 field.  Her time was  6:03.  Jessica Meany (CRCA/Stan’s NoTubes p/b EnduranceWerx) won the Women’s Category 4 with a time of 6:01.  Anthony Fatuzzo (CRCA/Velorigin Performance) repeated his win from 2012 in the men’s Category 3 field in a time of 4:45 – 3 seconds slower than last year’s time.
