Sunday, July 29th the Miller School of Albemarle hosted the Virgina State Road Race Championships for riders under 19 years old (Juniors) and riders over 30 years old (Masters). Champions were crowned in 2 year brackets for the Juniors and 5 year brackets for the Masters. For the Men 50+ Roger bested the field over the challenging 47 mile course. Roger attacked the field at the beginning of the 2nd of 3 15.7 mile laps after Scott set a strong tempo on one of the numerous hills on the course. 2 riders bridged to form a three man break away that finished 2 and half minutes in front of the field.
"Trying to ride away from a strong field is a big ask. I was happy to have the best bicycle made to get all my effort into the road. My Trek Madone 6.9 SSL made the win happen" observed the happy winner.
