Race Report - Rosewood 5/10/09

Where there is a race, there is ZMotion...

We had a great turn out of ZMotion Master's racers at Sunday's race in Rosewood. The day started early with the Master's 35+ at 8am and it was rocking. The field ended up splitting into 3 groups around 2/3 of the way into the race with a lead 2 out front, a following group of around a dozen and the rest of the field. ZMotion was represented in the middle group by Jeff (of course) and Mark. The group seemed uninterested in chasing the two guys and let them ride away into the sunset. Jeff being the rider that he is managed to turn a bad situation on it's head by a late race two man break-away that put Jeff on the podium in 3rd. Wow!

The Master's 45+ race was up next and ended up in a field sprint. We had Ron Ray in a two man break but the field was having none of it. Shaun has really come into his own as the Master's 45+ sprinter and was barely nipped at the line by super speedster Peter Aldridge for 2nd place in a dramatic finish. Great job Shaun.

In the Pro 1,2,3 race, a series of tired by determined Master's guys did their second race of the day but still managed to finish up there with Shaun in 9th, Joe Vietro in 10th and Jody in 11th. Way to go.
