The team posted excellent results for the opening road races of the 2009 season. Washington road racing starts with Mason Lake, a three race series riders will either show up to regardless of weather or avoid like the plague. In the cat 1/2 race, Kyle Farrell spent a good part of the day in a breakaway and ended 3rd for Mason Lake #1. Mike Murdin rounded out the top 10 in the road race opener and managed similar placings in the remaining races of the series.
In the second and third Mason Lake races Chris Teufel pushed through the pain cave with 4th and 3rd place finishes. Chris ended up in 2nd place for the series, tieing the overall winner for series points.
In Masters A/B, David Hills opened his season with a 6th place at Mason Lake #1. Meanwhile John Meehan and Matt Hill showed consistent finishes ending the Mason Lake series in 4th and 5th place.
Road racing in Sequim is another staple of the early season calendar. The team pulled off some excellent results in the second race last Sunday. Kyle Farrell finished 2nd place in the cat 1/2 field with Mike Murdin in 10th and Dan Hazzard, in his first 1/2 race, in 12th.
Sequim #2 also saw Flavio Rattazzi use his time trial skills to take the win in the Masters field. Brad Lamkin wasn't far behind in the field sprint, finishing 4th for the day.
Off to a great start in March!
