Series II Race I
 

Cooper City, FL, April 26th, 2015

* 35+ When I heard that Patrick was registering only for one race, we knew that he was given all into this race. In fact, after the first intermediate sprint taken by JF Rodriguez, 3 men broke away; P Sansbury, JA Rodriguez and A Hulscher. Patrick did not contest the second sprint, but when he crossed the line, expressed to us ďam the winnerĒ and it happened, he came in solo to take the yellow jersey.
* 45+ & 55+ Wm Strong wind coming from the west, which means half of the course against it. For the first time given out merchandise prizes for the intermediate sprint brought new challengers, L Perez took the first one, but it was the end of the race for many riders, minute 15 into the race, V Herrera took off and won in an impressive solo, about three laps to go, the pack was closing on him, he looked back saw them and pushed the pedals to re-open a 35 seconds gap to take the yellow jersey as well as the white sprinterís jersey. F Craig won the 55+ field and the women race was for E Lyon.
* Pro 1,2,3 The wind continued to ravage the peloton. Three men breakaway took all: sprinterís points and podium places. We had two chasers, followed by another two, and from time to time a few riders gapped the main group for a few seconds but they came back. No one could get to any of the three groups ahead of them; riders were all over the course. E Lopez (Kiko) took both jerseys, yellow and white. Second place was for R Minier and closing the podium we had J Armas.
* Cat 4&5 For many this is the main event, the fast, furious and fearless are combined here, a new generation is rising out of this amazing bunch of riders, which will continue dominating at all races in Florida, as the South Floridians do in the other categories. E Zugor is the new sprinterís white jersey leader, he took 5 out 6 available points in this competition. The day belongs to Q King that won the race and is the new guy in yellow. Second place was for L Vassell, followed by O Martinez.
