2016 Charm City Cross: D2 Elite Men UCI C1 – MAC Series #5
Missed my own race on both day one and day two due to a tooth of anger, but I couldn’t miss D2’s C1 event since errybody gone be there. So I loaded up my gear bag then loaded up myself with Advil 800 and Percocets. Don’t worry I took the Percocet when I arrived.
I’d like to say D2 was faster than D1 because the mud had dried, but I didn’t see D1, sooo… Regardless, fastness and goodness was witnessed by those in attendance. There was a front group that stayed together for a majority of de rondes, until Hyde kicked it in around one to go holding on to the sweet gapage he created to the line for the win. Powers and Timmerman sprinted for 2nd and 3rd respectively.
Note: The ginger beards confused me in my drugged state—that should’ve been, “KOMAAAN ROBERT (Marion)!!”, instead of, “KOMAAAN MARK (McConnell)!!” Forgive me.
