Covered Bridge Race

The first thing I heard when I woke up at 6 am on Sunday morning was rain.  I’m not too sure what conditions everyone else has being experiencing this spring, but my weekends have mainly been loaded with tons of precipitation.  Eventually, the rain would pass and leave a wet road with plenty of grit and dirt to cover both me and everyone else for our 9 am start of the “Covered Bridge Race”.

After many attacks during opening laps of the race, I found myself in a four man break. We had a decent gap, but it did nothing to stop a small group containing both Andy Clarke and Paul Martin from bridging up to us with a lap and half to go. With about ten of us all together, Andy C decided to throw down a few times to tire out our breakaway companions.  His moves worked perfectly and set Paul up to lead me out for the win.

This was without a doubt my favorite win at the Covered Bridge Race.  My feelings do not stem from any event during the race, but after.  For winning the race, I received a coveted Pyro Apparel Jersey. Nice.
