Nevada City Classic- Floyd Landis competes
Sunday was a great day in Nevada City for the 50th annual Nevada City classic. The weather was great and the racing was very good in every class.
The surprise of the day came when the race announcer was calling the Pros to the line just prior to the start of their race. The crowd watched as Floyd Landis rolled to the line followed by a very loud chorus of boos. I couldn't tell if he was wearing a "Dopers Suck" jersey or not.
The Pros raced for 90 minutes and Landis hung with the lead group the entire race and as the last lap began he was in 1st place. The crowds excitement was very high and when the group came to the finish line it was 1st Ian Boswell ( Bissell ), 2nd Paul Mach ( Bissell ), 3rd Zachary Davies ( Groove Subaru Cycling team ) , and 4th Floyd Landis ( No team ).
I'm not sure if Landis will ever be sponsored again but he rode pretty well yesterday.
