Northampton Youth Cycling Series #5
Northampton, MA
August 2, 2005

The dog days of summer brought with them the final race of the 2005 Northampton Youth Cycling Series. The make-up day for the rained out race of July 19th saw the most participation to date, both rider and cheering section. 56 (!) children put it all on the line to show their stuff under blue skies without a cloud in sight. 8 races total were run with two heats in every age category except the oldest and the youngest (and they almost needed one!).

The first heat of the first race of the night was lead in by Cameron Velez. Rounding out the podium were Gabrielle Pettock and Jack O�Connell. In close contention was Anna Kerwood leading in the second group of David Helems, Calvin Rioux and Ileana Fourier. After clearing the first field, the second heat took the course. Dana Kelly held off Christopher West and Bailey Gordon for the win. Matthew Connor and Maddie Illingsworth cross the line just in front of Natalie Ross and Tyler Greenwood.

After separating out the two field the first heat of the 7 and 8 yr olds l lined up for their race. Eli Friman, perpetual favorite again jumped out to an early and decisive lead and placed first. Seek-joo Yoon, upgrading from 5-6 yr olds place second just in front of Davis Rioux. Colin Hodgson slipped in just in front of Amelia DeFrancis. Daniel Brewer, Brenna MOttor, and Colin Rudolph finished up the field.

William Bass led the second heat in for first. Second was so close that without a camera we had to award a tie to Eli Heath and Aidan Greenwood. Sammi Stolar took the final podium spot with third. Adam Rioux, Inderjeet Singh, and Allison Helems then finished within the next few seconds.

A new, extra long course meant the 9 and 10 year-olds took the field but only did one lap. After instructions were given Sam Gordon decided that an all out effort was needed to finish in front of Sam Walker and Emma West. Wilona Ryder and Avery Nortonsmith used the challenge to follow in moments later. Max Swenson and Caelin Mottor rounded out the field almost side by side.

The second heat was led in by Keenan Ryan with Alex Stenson right on his wheel.. Austen Rioux and Jeremiah Hyslip then led the chase group of Lilly Ross, Sophie Lellman, and Abby Cresetelli in to finish the race.

The final full lap race of the evening was a two lap ride. Owen West came around Charlotte Lellman to take first. Sukhjit Kaur and Patrick Crowther came for a close third and fourth.

Finally the 50 meter dash was set-up for the four and unders (and accompanying helpers). With nine starters there was a discussion of separating the field. Since no one wanted to wait it was decided that one sprint would do it. Gabriel, Karlie, and Ronan were the podium winners. Gus, MiKayla, and Linna were the second group across and Aiden, Carlie, and Sophie rounded out the field. (Apologies for name misspellings and lack of helper names!)

Congratulations to all our racers and thanks to everyone who has helped out this year.
