I must admit that I have grown accustomed to not having to scour the internet on Monday mornings for snippets and clues to the athletic achievement of the past two days, and when I say I've grown accustomed to it, I mean that I despise looking up results for racers that aren't me. But there are paying subscribers to keep happy (I crack myself up sometimes), so I shall recap the weekend's accomplishments.
At the Tour of the Adirondacks, most of the racing and placing was done by non-NYC area people, saving me the trouble of listing them by names, Parker Chea of Star Track was the lone racers to represent NYC on the podiums up there, with second place in the junior 14-15 race. Results are here.
At the inaugural White Plains Downtown Criterium, Eneas Freyre of Target Training won the pro/1/2/3 race. Caryl Gale of Wonder Wheels won the women's race. Tom Dudzik of the Farm Team won the cat 3/4 race. Billy Wherley won the cat 5 race. Results are here.
Meanwhile in Brooklyn, the Mangoseed Graveyard series is bouncing along, with Phil Penman of BH/Comedy Central winning the cat 1/2/3 race. This is after he set the fastest time at the Lake Noxamixon time trial the day before in Quakertown, Pa.
You may be done with racing, but that doesn’t mean racing is done with you.
It was a weekend’s worth of racing that I shall now type about, so here is the typing that I will do.
I leave the area for a week, and it seems that everyone has forgotten how to snipe away about other riders sandbagging and cutting courses. What has become of the internet?
