Whiteface Mountain State Championships. June 12th , 2010
Steady rain and cool temperatures greeted the 35 stalwart souls who lined up to begin the cat5 race at this year's NYS road race championships, held in the shadow of Whiteface Mountain. CNYC's own Richard Serton was in the mix, looking to secure a state title for the orange and blue. The course featured a short neutral start, followed by a 6 mile jaunt to a 14 mile rolling loop, which the cat5's would complete 2 times. At that point, the field would follow the original 6 mile stretch back to the foot of the Whiteface Highway, where a 1.6 mile, 8% climb to the finish awaited.

Words by Richard Serton.
In an odd development, the organizers of the KSR decided that the circuit race, whilst being held in the middle of the picturesque Green Mountains, should be relatively devoid of climbing. Go figure. CNYC's own Richard Serton was in the mix, coming off what could have been a pretty disastrous crash at a time trial the week before. Fortunately, he was only left with some road rash and 1 shredded CNYC skinsuit. After a neutral mile at the start, the race had the feel of a spirited yet friendly Saturday club ride. The first 19-mile lap was pretty casual, with the only excitement coming at the KOM point. Serton was not contending for the GC title, so he was content to let everyone else fight it out. The second lap saw the pace pick up noticeably, and the group started to see riders fall off the back. Another KOM sprint led to more attrition from the peloton and a core group of about 15 riders remained to contend for the win. The final 5K of the course was slightly downhill to a fast finish and those expecting a drag race to the line were not to be disappointed. The pace slowed to less than 20mph at the 2K point as nobody wanted to do any of the heavy lifting, saving their energy for the sprint. At about 1.5K, Serton was on the front, pulling hard but not at top speed. With about 300m to go, he dropped the hammer and held off all comers until 50m or so when a few riders had pulled through to steal the win. Serton claimed 5th place.

The month of May is when the Finger Lakes community of Bristol...yes, the birth place of our dog Bristol McGee...and the start/finish of the Bristol Road Race presented by Constellation Group. It's a 51 mile race on a pretty demanding course. This race owes me...big time. Why? It was a few years ago, 2006 I think, when I had entered the race and almost missed the start because we drove according to the race sheet driving instructions instead of the Google Map directions. So, we arrive, I was so amped up, early in the race, I roll off the front and some guy rolls with me. He starts hitting it hard, and we are gone. As we approached an intersection, a corner worker had her back to us and we went straight...straight off course and DNF'd.

A run of 2 consecutive weekends with CNYC wins came to an end this Sunday. Hollenbecks.....a Upstate NY Spring Classic provided lots of fun and good racing this year for the CNYCers.....but no wins. The club was represented well by Rich Karaz, Richard Serton, Ed King, Scott Graham and Peter Martin.
Race Report by Rich Karaz.
Why do we race bikes? For prizes? No. We race bikes because we love it. Like in the beer commercial, "This is what we do." The Central NY Spring Classic previously known as the Greek Peak Road Race has been Hollenbeck's for quite a few years now. The race draws a nice big crowd. What do we race for prizes wise? Cookies. Seriously, cookies. Chris's Cookies is a bakery in the Ithaca area and they supply the prizes besides the top 3 in each category getting their entry fee returned. Still, the parking lot at Hollenbeck Orchard is filled to capacity. Lining up in the M35+ race for the CNYC club is Pete Martin, Scott Graham and myself. One lap, 22 miles for us. Truth is, I signed up to race 2 laps, but due to some USACycling jargon, it was decided I'm best off just enter the M35 event. Oh well.
