* 35+ “The house of pain” takes only the brave. This was the
case for 35+, “supposedly” this is the strongest age group, but
when time comes they vanish with South Florida’s high winds.
Well… it is what it is. On the polka dot jersey, by taken one
point on the second sprint, P Sansbury was able to keep it; but
J Rojas and JA Rodriguez are just one point behind, this
category it is not over yet. In a solo J Rojas took victory,
followed by JF Rodriguez and P Sansbury, that still is the
current yellow jersey leader.
* 45+ & 55+ Wm We have a new polka dot jersey leader, C
Ortiz took on the intermediate sprints five points, and his
advantage now, is two points only; another jersey undecided
until next race. A break of four riders was gone, one of them, G
Ferrer belongs to the 55+ field; therefore his first place was
secured on this category. The final sprint was taken by V
Herrera that consolidates his first place overall. On a close
sprint for second place and for a couple of inches, S Mlujeak
takes it from R Robinson. K Steven and M Mosquera were able to
stay with the chasing group to complete the podium for the 55+.
The ladies race was for A Levy followed by her team mate J
Seeger, and last step on the podium was for A Martinez.
* Pro 1,2,3 Amazing performances showed by N Trujillo, took
the bull by the horns and did almost the entire race in a solo,
took all intermediate sprints and the win, he is now tied on
first place on the polka dot jersey and sits second overall. In
a solo as well we had one chaser, J Silverberg (19, a future
prospectus for the major league). The field sprint for third
place was taken by the current leader E Lopez, which keeps his
yellow jersey for just one point.
* Cat 4&5 The show it on… this is the race spectators are
waiting for, all the attention has been gained by this category.
C Fuentes took enough points on the climber’s jersey to sit
comfortable in first place. A break of eleven riders got cleared
from the rest of the bunch; many of the racers got lapped by
this strong break. C Fuentes wins the race followed by H Perez
and E Zugor. The current yellow jersey leader, placed 6th and
keeps his first place on GC, but E Zugor tied in points with
him. It is going to be a very strong race next one to watch, and
decide who the leader will be at Piccolo June 7th.
