This weekend was another big one for Bloomington cycling. Numerous riders from the area came away with victories at various races, most notably Eric Young (BISSELL) took his second NRC victory of the year when he won the Stage 3 criterium of the Tour de Toona. Bissell also won the team classification, but missed out on the GC victory, which was taken by Pure Black Racing.
At this rate, Young's going to have to come up with more creative victory salutes. Photo from cyclingnews.com
Next up we have another Cutters alumnus, Erik Hamilton (Panther p/b Competitive Cyclist), who won the GC at Tour of the Valley over in Youngstown, OH. After a 3rd place in the opening TT, Hamilton, who is likely benefiting from the fitness he gained at the Nature Valley Grand Prix and Elite Nationals, took the final overall victory.
That bottle looks very appealing...
Meanwhile, up at Superweek yet another Cutter Kevin Depasse (Scholars Inn Bakehouse p/b Team Tortuga) won the Cat 3 race at the Homewood Cycling Classic. This young man will have to keep his points tally handy to make sure he doesn't get upgraded to a Cat 2 before April 2012!
This sums it up for the results I'm privy to, if anyone is left out, leave a comment!
