* 35+ Only the brave dare to come to the “house of pain” For
a couple of laps we had the bunch together, until B Reeves took
off and grabbed all points available for the polka dot jersey.
But it was not enough to take the jersey from JA Rodriguez. I
Franco jumped and chased to get to his team mate at front, to
take second place. Out of the rest of the field, JA Rodriguez
took third place to complete the podium. On GC JF Rodriguez kept
yellow, JA Rodriguez moved onto second place and R Robinson got
* 45+ & 55+ The house of pain took in the second field of
the day; a combined 45+ and 55+, after the first intermediate
sprint a break of three were gone. I Franco took all points
available for the KOM and got crowded as the new king. The break
of three ends up in getting to finish line one by one. I Franco
won the day followed by C Ortiz that kept his leader’s jersey
and G Ferrer. In reference to the 55+ M Mosquera took first
followed by R Abreu and S Kurth. No significant changes on GC.
* Pro 1,2,3 The house of pain welcomed the future of cycling,
juniors from Interactive Metronome and Boom Development Team
came to the line to test their self’s with the best of the best.
We are glad to see this approach and taking advantage of this
course to really have a taste of real cycling. G Bianchi day
after he got married, came to race, and he knew why, took all
intermediate sprints and won the race, on top of all of this, he
got crowned as the new KOM, it couldn’t get any better than this
to a newlywed, congrats!. Second place of the day was for L
Zayas racing now for all 4 cycling team, P Sansbury took third.
GC had changes, F Matute did not race and lost his yellow
jersey, and now G Bianchi and S Mlujeak are tied on first place.
* Cat 4&5 The biggest field of the day, dear to challenge
“the house of pain”. Why the nick name? Two climbs in the middle
of a 1.5 course couldn’t be better. First intermediate sprint
was good enough for C Fuentes to take the 2014 KOM polka dot
jersey. A beak of three gave us as the winner of the day, M
Monteverde from Patches team. Followed by K Jambretz and A
Garcia. Congratulations to the Mow brothers, a couple of juniors
seeking for a better future in cycling that were up to the
challenge. The only change on GC was Monteveerde moving upto
second place overall.
