Midweek Mayhem: 2009 Calgary Crit Series Race #2

May 26th, Calgary AB – Race #2 of the Midweek Mayhem Crit Series took place tonight in Calgary under much improved conditions over last week. While the strong winds played a part in both the A & B races, the temperature was significantly warmer.The warmth brought out the racers this week, with 49 taking the start for the first race of the night. The 30 minute + 3 laps B race followed a different scenario than usual, with a break-away of two riders (Jeremy Roles – Speed Theory, Ian Aulds – Veloplzen CC) managing to keep away from a chase group of 6 from the early going of the race. The chase group was caught with only 2 laps to go, leading to a bunch sprint for the final 3 podium spots behind Roles in 1st and Auld in 2nd.

The A race was aggressive from the gun, with multiple breaks going up the road only to get reeled in. Craig DeBellefeuille (CMC/Bow Cycle) continued to show great form tonight picking up the first prime as well as second in the field sprint that ended the race. Jeff Bolstad (Top Gear – Calgary Cycle) was the man of the match, though, picking up first place for the night along with the second prime. Team H&R Block-Kona was also well represented with Chris McNeil and Peter Lawrence picking up third and fourth, while Adam Boyko (Top Gear – Calgary Cycle) rounded out the points in fifth.
