Rosena Ranch Race Report, Saturday, Feb 25th, 2017, from the WINNER, Greg Fenton:
We stared with a large group. It was nice to have so many teammates together (Jimbo, Kal, Reed, Tony, and myself). We had several attacks starting from the onset of the race. Jimbo and Kal responded to them. About lap 7 the group started to break apart and was fortunate to be in the lead group with 5 other racers. Jimbo had a strong attempt to bridge up to the group but the head winds were increasing and his efforts were cut short.
Kal was riding strong but unfortunately one of the racer's in the front group with me was in his group (60+), which bumped Kal down a step on the podium.
Reed and Tony ran into some misfortune when the Cat 3's were passing the group on both sides. The Cat 3's crashed right in front of them causing them to break, swerve, and stop to avoid the crash.
Now for the sprint finish. Our break away stayed and it all came down to a sprint for the line and I was fortunate to take the win. I was riding my new Specialized Venge so I am making an official endorsement for this bike. It was perfect for this type of race.
The first race was so fun that Kal, Jimbo, and I decided to race back to back to support Rodger. As the race started, Terry took off with a group of 8 racers and had a nice gap. Oops, that was last week in Phoenix (I thought I should mention Terry this week since I forgot him last week). Anyway about half way through the second race we decided this wasn't such a good idea and we finished early so we could go eat lunch.
