US 100K NRC RACE
This race would be like any other race for us, except for the small fact it was an NRC race. Not only an NRC race, but Health-Net needed a good finish to win there 4th NRC title. Some of the talent that was present for the days festivities would be eventual winner, Emile Abraham (Priority Health), Karl Menzies and newly crowned US PRO Crit champ, Kirk O’bee of Health-Net fame, B World Road Race Champ, Ivan Stevic and his band of Toyota brothers, as well as the Jittery boys with Neil Shirley, fresh off his podium appearance at US PRO RR the day before. The list goes on, with too numerous to name, but you get the gist.
The call to the line was at 7:15 AM for the 100K affair. Myogenesis showed up with the full squad since this was a “home race” for us. The race started fairly serene with folks taking flyers from the start, but nothing threatening. It was just folks stretching their early morning legs. It didn’t take too long before the guns started firing though. Several attempted breaks went with in the first few laps, but nothing of significance stuck, until the 4th lap. A move would scamper off the front containing a couple of the Jittery Joes guys (Jeff Hopkins, Trent Wilson), 2 Health-Net guys (Doug Ollerenshaw and Karl Menzies) Bobby Lea and Ivan Stevic were there as well. Kelly Benefits had representation as well. When I bridged to the guys, I must admit, looking up and seeing the company I was in, it was a little intimidating…..but hey, I was there. The break worked well together, and I surely thought we were away and clear for the remainder, with 2 minutes plus to the field, but it wasn’t to be. We we’re pulled back into the fold, just in time for Big Jon to take second in the mid-race prime, to Keith Norris (AEG) who incidentally is the former U-23 National Criterium Champ. It was apparent that the race was coming to a field sprint, so we sat in and rested until the end. We successfully moved our way to the front on the final lap and ended up with 4 in the top 35. Not bad for biting one off with the big hitters on the domestic scene…Looks like next on the schedule is the Grant Park/Buckhead Georgia Cup. Look for the boys in blue at those locales for some big new NEWS……until then……
