Are we through yet?

Another BIG Weekend.

By Jake Hansen

Another day does not always equal another dollar. But at the OBRA State Champ Criterium in Albany Saturday, it did. 

We showed up with a big goal, get Alex Lightman to the finish before the rest of the Cat 3 chaos.

Bedford was consistently at the front of the pack pushing the tempo, attacking, or blocking it up when his teammates were away.

Randy Word was near the front keeping Cyclisme colors in position.

I struggled to hang on the back for what seemed an eternity.

Eventually, I made my way to the front, and won the $50 prime that paid for our dinner at the Calapooia Brewing Co. 

Hot into the last turn of the 40 minute Crit was our man Stephen Bedford leading out Alex Lightman.  

Alex spun his gears in those perfect circles that we all are envious of, but was barely beaten by our brother in The Lore, now CAPA's Star, Joey Dengel.
