OBRA RR Championships

Posted on May 18, 2011

Wanted to give a brief post about this weekend’s racing in Silverton.

In the morning’s races we had Nate Gibson & David Boerner doing the Men’s 4/5 race. Both made the top 5, with Nate managing to nab the 3rd spot on the podium with David coming in 5th.

Ben and Tym raced the afternoon Cat 3 race. The loose plan was to put Tym in a breakaway and let him do his thing, and if caught Ben would be ready to counter. Tym attacked the catch of a solo break at the beginning of lap 2 and was soon joined by two others. His break turned into a solo effort on the first climb of lap 3 and lasted till just under one kilometer to go, when a tailwind made the efficiency of the field impossible to beat. Ben played it perfectly, countering the catch and emerging from the chaos of the hill sprint in 2nd place. Tym hung in the group and finished 19th.

Great racing from the guys. Tabor this weekend, with our sights being set firmly on Mt Hood Cycling Classic and Elkhorn coming up.
