Nutmeg Bike Challenge

Team Bikeman - Race Reports

Technical, in this case, is an understatement. The Nutmeg Games down in Somers CT was blessed with maybe the best day of the summer. Picture 85 degrees, sunny, and low humidity playing host to fast twisty single track, just tricky enough to require attention, especially at speed pushing the big ring.

I was the lone Bikeman team member racing at the Nutmeg Games. The start went off fast and I settled into 2nd. After about the first quarter lap we had a group of about 5 off the front. I was feeling pretty comfortable with the pace, so I attacked on a short section of downhill fire road leading into a high speed section of twists. I got a good gap off the front, and I wound up riding by myself in the lead for the remaining two and a half laps to take 1st place. I even managed to pass one of the semi-pro riders a little bit before the finish line.
