Cooper City, FL, July 12th, 2015

* 35+ A difficult task ahead of P Sansbury that he fell short for one point to gain the yellow jersey. JA Rodriguez managed to get two points to consolidate the series; he also won overwhelmingly the sprinterís white jersey. Team velo speed dominated the day, by taking the top two places, with the return of Aira and Quintero, last place at the podium was for Moore.
* 45+ 55+ and Women A group of about 8 riders broke away from the pack, mainly from riders looking to untie the 55+; but they were very well calibrated by the leader of the 45+ V Herrera that in about two laps closed the gap. L Perez still untouchable on the final sprint, one more time he wins the day, followed by Armas and Herrera. The sprinterís white jersey was for Lopez as well. The final sprint untied the 55+ in favor of Mosquera. R Mok wins the women series, which unfortunately we will not host any longer due to the lack of participants.
* Pro 1,2,3 We had a pleasant visit yesterday; USADA came to do anti doping test at this field. Unannounced they came, 15 minutes into the race, to let us know that; first, second and fourth places will be tested, seeking our cooperation to bring the riders to them. Many asked me why they came. I did not bother to ask them, it is irrelevant their reasoning behind the scene, what it matters is the outcome, in a sports that has been looked under the microscope lately. A break of two, Zayas and Rolo were unreachable, in a solo chase we had F Gonzalez. The bunch sprint was taken by E Lopez that won the two jerseys, leadersí and sprintersí. Another rider that looks untouchable, at any giving field sprint.
* 4&5 Another expected race not only by riders but spectators, due to a tie on first place. E Zugor was able to secure the white jersey but not the yellow. C Fuentes with his 5th place of the day gained the pleasure of wearing the final leaderís jersey. A break of 3 riders were able to keep the opened gap, they had. A Geffner in a very explosive sprint won the day, followed by R Moreno and J Bomnin.
* Kids At the categories we had, on the 6 to 9 the winner was Thomas Glock. Nicolas Raffinengo did the honors by winning the age group 10 to 12. Last but not least juniors 13 to 15 were dominated by Simon Reyes. Congratulations to all participants, and thank to City Bikes for donating glasses to all the winners.
