Cyclocross Season Is Well Under Way!by , VP Racing
The Todd Tour of Louisville on October 2nd offered a number of activities for all ages including the fourth cyclocross race in the Ohio Valley Cross Race series. The event was held in Shawnee Park and the CX race featured an interesting course that was more challenging than one might have expected for what is a relatively flat park. The weather was picture perfect, (almost too nice for CX!) and there were well over a 100 racers from around the region, including 14 members of Team Louisville, competing in several categories of races.
One of the most skilled CX racers on our team, Brad Wunderlich, took first place in the Master 45+ race and Joe Collins was 9th in the Masters 35+ race.
Unfortunately, Marcus Moran, another strong member of our team was out of town for this race. Marcus has been regularly finishing 4th behind the dynamic duo of Clayton Omer and Andrew Lewellyn in the B races.
In the C race (Cat 4/5 and beginners) eight of the 19 racers in the field were from Team Louisville. Even though this was the first CX race for several of our guys, they had some impressive results. Charles Garner, Duane Walker, Kerry Herbine, and Phil Patterson finished 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th; Tim Omer was 8th and Perry Finley, myself and Jim Arnett finished 10th, 11th and 12th.
Team Louisville would like to thank the folks at Todd Investments and 2WheelSports for hosting a great race and I urge everyone to come to this event next year.
The Ohio Valley Cross series continues on throughout the fall, and will include the Kentucky State Championships, which will be held in Louisville at the River Road Country Club on December 3rd. Come out and join in the fun and cheer for your LBC team!
