Race team member Bruce Rohdenburg placed 2nd in the GC for the Master's Category at the 2009 Empire Championships held on June 6th and 7th. After winning the opening road race on Saturday, he placed 2nd in the criterium on Sunday, only to have the 2nd place competitor from the road race take the win there. Forced with breaking a tie, the officials chose to weight the criterium a little higher and award first place to the other rider. A courageous ride for Bruce on all fronts!
Other results from the race included a 4th and 6th place in the Masters Road Race by Jim Reed and Dave Hansen respectively, 39th and 44th in the Cat 4/5 Road Race by Mark Bartsch and Ed Dailey, 5th for Dave Hansen on the Master's criterium, and 22nd for Mark Bartsch for the 4/5 criterium. Great job guys! Full results are in PDF below.
