This picture was snapped by District Velocity Racing p/b Bicycle Pro Shop teammate Marcus during the Cat 4 Men’s race, which was shortened for pretty obvious reasons. And oddly enough, this marks the second year running that a race has been cut short at the Dawg Days of Summer Circuit Race due to rainstorms of death. Last year, it was the 1/2/3 field that got the axe.
Regardless, it was another successful running of the circuit race that we’ve co-promoted alongside Artemis for the last three years. Despite the soggy ending, there was plenty of exciting racing to be had, including an impressive ABRT win in the Women’s 35+/45+ race. Our own Sarah took second in the Women’s Cat 4, racing intelligently against a strong field of contenders, and Tom S. placed fourth in the shorter-than-usual Men’s Cat 4. Grayson got some props for being “animated,” and we welcomed three new DVR racers to the 1/2/3 fold.
Honestly, we all consider it something of a miracle that no one was struck by lighting after the monsoon started.
Thanks to everyone in MABRA and beyond for coming out to the race, which has become something of an end-of-the-season celebration. Big props are due to everyone at Artemis for putting up with us for another year, and we look forward to keeping the race going far into the future, deathly weather or not.
