Serton Takes 3rd at Battenkill for CNYC

In his first race for CNYC ( And, his first race of the 2010 season. ) Richard Serton grabbed a great 3rd place finish in the Category 5 race at Battenkill. What started out dark and blustery turned out to be a great day for racing - the clouds broke not long after we started. With a few exceptions Rich's group stayed together until the final tough climb and then a small group broke away. Two guys got up the road. Richard chased the 2nd place rider for about 2k starting at the 5k marker but wasn't making any ground. He then hung back with 4 other riders thinking they would fight it out for 3rd place. Coming into the final turn Serton dropped the hammer and came clear for a podium spot.
