Willow Springs Road Race Delights
The Intelligentsia Cup returned road racing action to the well-known Willow Springs road race course and the overwhelming response was a big thumbs up! In the men's race Michael Chauner (Island 200) put in a brave solo attack on the finishing circuits to take the win while Tina Pic (Fearless Femme) rode off a teammate's lead-out to take the uphill sprint on the top of the finishing climb.
Earlier in the day the amateur races went off without a hitch with both field sprints up the climb and small breakaways ending the races. Michael Heagney (Intelligentsia) continued that team's strong results in the Master's 1/2/3 race. The very fast category 2/3 race was another highlight with Konrad Witt (ABD) netting a hard-earned win.
Thanks go out to all of the volunteers who pitched in to marshall the course, and a special thanks to the Village of Willow Springs police department who ensured our racer were completely safe on course all day!
