It’s Just Not Fair

It’s just not fair to others. While it’s atypical to have this many athletes racing during this time of year, it’s not atypical of them to grab good results. For the third weekend in a row an Accelerate 3 athlete grabs a podium. This time James grabs THE top spot!

James notched Accelerate 3’s first overall win of the season at the Donaldson Center Road Race. About eight miles into the 35 mile race, he sticks his nose in the wind to intitiate a 3-man break. Normally when a 3 man break goes 8 miles into a Cat 4 road race, it’s coming back. Unless of course you’ve got James doing more then his fair share of the work. Then it stays away. With the three of them clear of the group, it comes down to the final sprint. It’s always easier to sprint against two other people then twenty others..as James proves.
