Here are the race results, there were a few DB errors that had to be corrected before posting. Some racers also asked if the laps were really 7.3 miles. The answer is yes unless a very expensive GPS that is used for map making was defective. Some racers reported only riding a little over 6 miles according to their Strava. Cell coverage and even low end GPS units don’t work very good in dense coverage on rolling terrain. An alternative method is a really expensive GPS unit with an external patch or helix antenna or the good old fashion wired cycle computer.

Take advantage of a Series Number Plate registration for $15/rider and save $5 off your pre-registration entry fee (per event) or $10 off the day of race entry fee (per event). Its not too late to still sign up for the new “Team Competition”. Anyone can create a team name and invite other riders to join their team and work towards earning team based mileage. The team who records the most miles will receive a custom “traveling” trophy belt that will go from race to race til the end of the season. The trophy belt will be permanently awarded to the team who completes the most miles during the season.
