10 Apr First Podium of 2011
Mark Alden took the team’s first podium of the season taking 3rd in the 35+ Master’s race in Central Park today; part of the New York City Spring Series. The race, typical of many Spring Series races, became somewhat chaotic as three different fields became one large group on the course. The large mass of riders made for bedlam of racing, which prohibited any sort of established breakaway, or attempts given all of the confusion, but when all was said and done it came down to a field sprint. Once the Master’s racers were finally left to their own devices (having one more lap than the other fields) the race became fast and furious, but in such a short distance everyone was together at the finish, and Alden showed that he still has some jump from last year to finish the race off nicely.
