This past Sunday the unseasonable warm weather meant the roads around Bloomington were busy with riders as road racing season fast approaches. This meant only a dedicated group of cyclo-crossers turned out for the latest in the Underground cross series. Three visitors from Columbus joined 5 locals to contest the 45min race and it was Groundhog Day as far as the results were concerned.
The early laps saw Adam Rodkey and the Polish wonder Tomas ride away from the field and after a tough battle it was our European MTBer who once again came out on top. As with the previous edition second placed Rodkey was followed in third and fourth by Mike Feske and organiser Jim Kirkham respectively.
There is one more remaining race on March 1st, no lesser an event than the (unofficial) Monroe County Champs! Hopefully the weather will be crappy so road riding is off the menu and riders will get their fill with 45mins of pain in the mud!
