    I noted in the Nor Cal thread, but local Jr teammate from last year rolled solo in the 15-16 race for the last 20 miles. Had his gap up to 50 seconds with 10k to go and 30s at 5k to go. Sadly, got caught on the steep finishing 1k climb with 200m or so left and just blew up. So close to Jr glory...

    bummer and bummer, probably DQd for rolling on magic tires and covering his bar tops with pine tar.

    There will be a communique from USAC later discussing the relegations, DQs and fines. We could have a betting pool and see who gets the reason for the DQ right.

    It seems hard to get DQed at nationals in the junior field unless it was something fragrant that was discussed at the start that affected safety and stated by officials that no mercy will be shown for offenders. I could see centerline rule violation being the most likely. Maybe no pins in his number. That would be hysterical.

    Probably a center line issue, if I had to guess. Or do they get the full road?

    Either way @Doge, as much as I'm poking fun, I'm really sorry to see this.

    Same kid won last year 17-18. Pretty impressive. Helps to be in the break with your teammate who is TT NC as well!

    My guess for the DQ is something involving traffic rules not related to the center line rule.

    I am with Mattm that it really sucks that Daniel got DQed...for whatever reason. Hopefully, he will do well in other events. I wish him the best.

    What a difference an L makes. Maybe I was more correct than we think.

    yep. Any one of those 5 could have won. I wonder if they rode for Colin or if he just had it at the end?

    Anyway, glad to see another National Champion Kit in our local races.

    One of the local kids here flatted in the 17-18 field and the neutral support car just drove by him without stopping. He apparently was in a break at the time.

    And a guy I used to race against's daughter took second in the 17-18 women's race. I think she will be at Lees-McRae next fall.
