Two years in a row the climate cooperated with us at Rutgers. It was an superior weekend. I do not imagine we had a greatest Pitt displaying for the Season Opener however those that got here out have been able to race. Our greatest consequence within the TT was Andrew Seitz, bringin' residence a 13th place. Satirically, we (Andy and I) rode virtually precisely the identical time besides I used to be a fraction of a second slower. So... I settled with 14th. The Crit was completely different than final 12 months however it was positively thrilling. The Males's A squad put two riders within the prime 10 and three within the prime 20. Seitz = sixth; Nik = eighth, me = 16th
Steph Stambaugh muscled her option to a 4th place. Candy. Subsequent day was additionally good climate however our racing sucked. Andy and I missed the transfer. I do not keep in mind our putting off the highest of my head however someplace far again. blah. Total, a profitable weekend for Pitt. Might there be a Pitt Males's A workforce at nationals!?
The workforce at Steph's home.
Columbia/ Stevens. It was epic. In all probability the second worst climate I've ever rode in behind Yale. So far as I do know Seitz, our new Males's Intro rider Dave Kugelman, and I have been the one riders to take part in Columbia's hurricane race. Dave pulled out a third place which was positively a spotlight to the weekend as Seitz and I missed one other 4 man transfer with 2 former Pittsburghers. (Alex Cox and Aaron Meyers) Driving again to Stephs home the balm burned dangerous. Stevens placed on a brand new race course for us that was a ton of enjoyable and disgrace on all those that missed it. Sadly, it got here to a subject dash and Andy and I completed each someplace within the prime 20. It was a loooooonnnnggg drive residence.
NO photos as a result of this weekend sucked.
And final weekend was superior! We stayed at Cohen's home which was higher than any 5 star lodge.Philly Phlyer rocks! It is sorta shut, the climate was lovely and the programs have been superior. The lads's A workforce lit it up within the TTT and took a second place. I'm nonetheless sorta curious of how we pulled it off however nonetheless we scored some workforce factors. Steph and Amy represented the Ladies's A TTT. Additionally bringing residence some factors. The circuit is nice two cool climbs on each side and I made the transfer (FINALLY) and ended up ending eighth. Seitz, Samson, and Nik all completed within the subject. The crit the following day was loopy, a number of turns, tremendous quick. Sadly, we had two riders go down. Amy and Andy. They each appear to be okay, the same old...street rash, some cuts and a few bike injury however nothing everlasting. Hopefully, they are going to be again to full power very quickly. I believe the race of the day goes to Zerby who killed it within the Males's D subject. He missed the 9 man transfer and drove the chase subject all day and nonetheless w
on the dash taking residence a prime 10. Candy.
Andy, Samson and I. Nik was simply behind.
