Fitchburg Stage Race Update: Day 3 Individual Time Trial

Nick Maimone starts the time trial

Today was the individual time trail. This event usually decides the final standing or at least the final podium of any stage race.

I have to post them hastily this morning since we are getting the juniors ready for an 8 AM start of the final days criterium.
Today's plan for the criterium is to try for a stage podium with either Nick or Booey.

Junior Men: 14.3 km
Tommy Schubert: 16th
Matt Waller: 39th
Booey Hottenstein: 42nd
Nick Roeder: 45th

Junior General Classification:
Tommy: 16th

Booey: 38th
Matt: 40th
Nick: 43rd

Women Pro 1/2: 14.3 km
Emily MacKay: 70th (GC 68th)

Emily's plan is to race today and finish a very hard stage race and gain some very valuable race experience. She will be back.

Senior Men Category 2: 14.3 km
Nick Maimone: 10th
PJ Runyon: 55th

General Classification:
Nick Maimone: 6th (1:16 back)
PJ Runyon: 28th (2:52 back)

Nick had a storming ride yesterday which moved him up 2 places in GC. PJ wasn't feeling that good and a mechanical problem with his aero bars added to the days results. Today in the criterium, PJ will support Nick's efforts to make sure that he retains or betters his GC status. I should be fun.

I'll have a long ride home today and hopefully get you the final story and results by tomorrow.

Ciao for now,
Ron Ruggiero
