Fitchburg Longsjo RR pics

Here are a few that I took at the Mt. Wachusett road race today. Road conditions were wet for the earlier races (Cat 3 and Jrs), but had about dried out when I got there. Temperature was around 70, with some humidity. Sorry, I don't really know who any of these guys (and ladies) are, so just enjoy, and perhaps you can pick out someone you know.

I am in Pic #5, the green, white and grey kit, with the black helmet. I finished second in the road race.

Well, that was taken in the feed zone, they were pretty tolerant there as it got kind of hectic trying to hand up bottles! The 2 guys in pic #6 were off the front and had a 4:30 lead at one point. #18 dropped the other guy on about lap 6 (of 9) and the next time around the lead was down to 3:00, so I'm sure he got swallowed up shortly thereafter. I wasn't able to stick around for the finish.

If I had known who some of you were, I might have tried to get better pics, but it was pretty hard trying to find individual riders, even on the hill coming into Princeton center and then the climb immediately after the corner just before the feed zone.

Oh, now that you say it I notice all the people in the background handing up bottles. Makes sense, then.

Thanks for the compliment. Unfortunately, I messed up on the tt and was in 48th position going into the second stage. Second yesterday moved me up to 11th, second in the circuit race today, with the time bonus might put me in 10th position, I hope.

Good job with the pics, thanks Suzie.

I'm in #5, in the Harvard kit. Good finish Pat! I was chasing you up the mountain, but couldn't get to your group. Ended up finishing 6th. 7th in GC now (before today's results- finished with the group 15ish), though with your time bonus today, maybe not for long!

Nice job guys! Unfortunately I was not able to make it to the John Fitch circuit race today, though there is an outside possibility I may make it to the crit on Sunday. BTW, if anyone in the pics wants a copy of a specific photo, don't be afraid to ask. I'd be happy to email you a full size copy. They were taken with a 5 megapixel camera, so you might be able to crop and blow up a bit to zoom in on yourself.
