Zipp OVCX Tour’s Kentucky Champions
The weather for Storm the Greens was not stormy, but it was ‘cross weather – temperatures in the low 40s (F), spitting rain, and wind. But that didn't deter the 200 plus racers who came out to vie for Zipp OVCX Tour points and Kentucky State Championship medals.
In the Elite Men's race, Ryan Knapp (BikeReg.com) continued his string of dominating performances. Knapp separated himself from a lead group of four after two laps and never looked back. The other three riders in the lead group--Andrew Llewellyn, Clayton Omer (both Calistoga), and Mitchell Kersting (Barbasol) didn't stay together long either. First, Kersting and Llewellyn gapped Omer when he had mechanical problems. Then Kersting put it to Llewellyn and rode in for second. Llewellyn, who'd just learned he's going to the Belgian Christmas camp again this year, rode in for the third podium spot.
In the Elite Masters race, Mike McShane (Calistoga) took the holeshot and never looked back. McShane dug deep into his bag of skills on the slippery course and held off a charging Morgan Webb (Barbasol) for the 35+ win and Kentucky State title. Tim Beirne of Calistoga came third just ahead of Fred Rose of BikeReg.com.
In the 45+ race, run with the 35+, Bob Bobrow (Calistoga) had a bad start but dieseled his way through the field and into third overall and the lead of the 45+ group after two laps. Bobrow then battled with 35+ rider Fred Rose and Bobrow's teammate Erik Fagerberg the rest of the way. Bobrow and Fagerberg finally shook Rose during the last lap and then raced it out for the Kentucky State Championship with Bobrow taking a narrow win. John "the Cat" Mandrola rounded out the 45+ podium taking the bronze.
In other action, Nicole Borem (DRT Racing) won the elite women's race ahead of series leader Amanda McKay (Biowheels). Keith Lucas won the men's category 3 race. Michael Seiler (Bikeclicks) won the 3/4 35+. David Hart (ZWS/Cyclesport) won the 3/4 45+. Teri Meek (Bikeclicks) won the women's 3/4 race. Travis Book won the 4 race.
