By Kenny Strickland -- Copper Town CR (1/2/3) -- 02/19/12
The 123 race was 90 min long and I did 6 laps. The pace was high most of the time which meant guttered single file. Going through town was a bit faster and it was difficult for me on the way out of town. It also required more effort coming out of the u-turn. There were some attacks in the beginning and quickly a break of 7 was off the front. Shortly after that, just minutes, the break dropped four guys and three stayed away the whole time. Twice, I saw them leaving the town as we were entering; which meant that we were not gaining on them, nor were they gaining on us. It is just disappointing to see the three of them working together and making it look so easy, while many of us were working together and not gaining. It was fun to go fast again.
I ended up 16th out of 37.
