ups and downs
Not too often a race stage starts and stops in my back yard. I couldn't resist the opportunity to catch the start, a section of the Bridle Path trail before the Old Buck climb and the stage finish. Lots of RMB jerseys in the first 30 riders across the finish line including many of the top solo riders. The fastest pro rider finished the stage in 1:35. Alison Sydor and Lea Davison came in second behind the Luna Chix on this sprinty sort of 25km stage, I expect we will see that change on longer stages.
