Lauderhill FL, August 17th, 2014

* 35+ JF Rodriguez defended his white jersey by taken five points on the intermediate sprints. We saw a few attempts from riders seeking to break away, but the bunch kept it all together. For the final sprint on a high speed race, JF Rodriguez racing for Stradalli won the day and now in the new yellow jersey leader. Second place of the day was for E Philip from Bill Bone Team followed by R Ransford (Cycle Depot) to close the podium.
* 45+ & 55+ The fight for white is very challenging at this time on the 45+ field, white jersey changed hands but not team; J Ortiz from Ghost Riders is now the current white leader. J Lyon from Cycle Depot Team won the day, followed by W Martinez from Big Wheel Sunrise. It call our attention that right after them we had both leaders (45+ and 55+) sprinting for next position on the road but individually looking for third and first respectively. Interesting to note that W Martinez now is tie on points with current leader. Second place on 55+ was for R Abreu followed by F Craig.
* Pro 1,2,3 Cool Beans could not hold the white jersey and now is on Stradalliís hands, the may bounce back to it next time around. The new sprinterís leader is JF Rodriguez. A break of six got away before the second intermediate sprint. Two laps to go F Matute went in a solo to win the race and wear yellow, he is the new leader. Second place was for Y Tsang followed by J Rodriguez, all of the from Rossetti Team. We had a ďpinkĒ podium (color of their jersey).
* Cat 4&5 Very interesting race this one was. Three well designed teams fighting for white and yellow, Elvys Trucking, Patches and Cycle Depot. A new tie for the sprinterís jersey, is between J Angel and L Perez, each with six points, who will be the new white leader August 31st. at Piccolo? L Avila not only won both sprints, but also won the race followed by D Paulete from Ultra Bike, and closing the podium we had H Rendon that now is the yellow jersey leader.
