There was a great PVC showing at the Auburn Lewiston Crit today!
Three of our junior were there to represent with Aiden Simmons finishing 1st followed by George P Theall for 2nd and Everett Yannelli in 4th! Aiden continued on in the challenging 4/5 field to continue to gain additional experience. The wind swept in after the first race which literally blew the remaining fields apart. It reminded me of the Track race called a “miss’n’out” where each lap the last person was pulled from the race until the finish. The fields were not large but fast and challenging.
The 4/5 race Mark Carpenter and Peter Morrison were working hard in the field finishing 4th and 7th respectively.
The 35+ race Peter was back out there and finished 3rd.
The 50+ race had 2 people off the front almost from the gun. The field continued to loose people as the gap with the leaders grew. George A Theall burst out of turn 3, up the hill, skipping his wheel in turn 4 for a clear field sprint win for 3rd place. Carl Hitchcock also stayed with the field winning a few primes along the way.
Others racing the PVC colors include Chris Darling, Graydon Stevens, George Benington, Brook More, John Baldwin, Brian Cole, Paul Niehoff, Christian Ratliff, Dan Leland.
