Race Report - The Dump (4/5/09)

I really appreciate Claudio sharing this with all of us...

The Pro,1,2 Team participated in the Vista View race this weekend. With all major South Florida Teams in attendance, Alex, Flaco, Hector, Juan and Victor were in for more than just a training race. At the start they announced that they were going to give several primes in the race ensuring that the race would have a fast pace from the gun. After a few laps Juan and Hector were part of a 10 person break with Flaco and Victor blocking and chasing anyone who tried to bridge across. Hector was able to out sprint the guys in the break to take the first prime. Towards the end of the race two more riders had bridged across when they took advantage of a prime to form a gap and jumped to the break. As the field disintegrated, Flaco and Victor attempted several times to bridge across but were unsuccessful as the remaining riders quickly chased them down. On the final sprint Hector was beaten at the line by a Santos rider to finish second with Juan finishing 4th on this hilly South Florida race. When the field Sprint came we had Flaco and Viictor take the sprint to finish in 12th and 13th.
