This past weekend’s club race featured the always challenging Power Points format – with sprints at Cat’s Paw and W 96th St on every lap. This difficult race format was made all the more difficult by hot and humid temperatures. Between the temperatures and the CRCA Lou Maltese Memorial scheduled for the following day the turnout was a relatively modest 124 races but the racing was still fast and furious.
In the Men’s A field a break managed to get up the road early in the race, with various small chase groups in pursuit, including CRCA Jim Boyd p/b Sixcycle leaders jersey wearer Chris Strumolo (CRCA/Dave Jordan Racing) but in the end it was a group of four that came across the line together. When the points were tallied from this group the finisher order was as follows:
- 1st – Geron Williams (CRCA/Foundation)
- 2nd – Stephan Hoffman (CRCA/Rockstar)
- 3rd – Matt Seaton (Rapha Racing)
- 4th Steve Magyera (CRCA/Foundation)
Shortly behind this lead group was Abraham Soler (CRCA/Foundation) who finished fourth in the final standings. The top 10 were rounded out by ira Blumberg (CRCA/FGX racing), Ron Ferraz (CRCA/Foundation), Matthew Vandivort (CRCA/Sixcycle-RK&O), Jesse Walker (CRCA/Setanta) and Adam Alexander (CRCA/Foundation).
In the B field the winner was Alex Sanborn (CRCA/Foundation) followed by Armand Wilhelm (CRCA/Siggi’sNYVelocity) and Chris Peck (CRCA/Setanta). The top seven were rounded out by Charles Altchek (CRCA/Foundation), Todd Royal (CRCA/W&D Racing), Noah Gellner (CRCA/Foundation) and Jamisen Ogg (CRCA/Cause & Effect)
The C field completed a scratch race that was won by John Kim ahead of Nicholas Gray and Mike Richford.
