As CRCA prepares for the Lou Maltese Memorial on Sunday July 15th (a race that is part of the CRCA Men’s 3 Open Race Series p/b Accelerade and 2nd Surge) we have updated standing available for all three of the open racing series, including the final Women’s 3/4 Development Racing Series p/b Bike Doctor NYC. If you have any questions about any of the series or the standings please email Matthew Vandivort at openracing[at]crca.net
CRCA P/1/2 Series presented by SIDS Bikes
Michael Boardman remains in the lead of the CRCA P/1/2 Series on the basis of his terrific time trial performance, but three riders are within striking distance: Greg Olsen, Bryan Dobes and Brian Breach. This series will be decided at the Mengoni Grand Prix on August 11th and the winner walks away with a CAAD10 frame from SIDS Bikes so there is a lot on the line.
CRCA 3 Series presented by Accelerade and 2nd Surge
The Cat 3 Series remains a wide open competition after four races with the winner of each of those races (Walker Hammean, Juan Aracena, David Carr and Anthony Fatuzzo) tied for first, followed closely by another four riders with 7 points each. With the Lou Maltese Memorial coming up this weekend there is the potential for a big shake-up in the standings with one of these riders potentially taking a commanding lead going into the final race of the series, the Mengoni Grand Prix.
CRCA WOMEN’S 3/4 DEVELOPMENT SERIES presented by BIKE DOCTOR NYC
The Women’s 3/4 Development Racing Series presented by Bike Doctor NYC concluded with the Central Park Classic on June 30. The series was won by Britlee Bowman who won four of the six races in the competition. Second place went to Carol-Lynn Mills and third place went to Renee Engelhardt after a close finish with Aimee Layton. The series prize pool goes seven deep so several other riders will receive great prizes courtesy of Bike Doctor NYC.
