Mens Pro 1/2/3 Race.
Kyle Reedy (Jetset Racing) takes the top podium spot followed close behind by Brandon McNulty (Landis/Trek) and Alex Driscoll to round out the top 3. Terry Schmidtnecht (Jetset Racing) and Matt Connors finish 4th and 5th with a sprint finish to clear out the top 5.
Close racing for the hour or power these gents put on! The top 4 battled it out for much of the first half until a mechanical took Michael Castro (Bicycle Ranch) out of the race and left it up to Brandon, Kyle and Alex to battle it out to the finish. 3 laps to go Kyle Reedy made his move and put almost 30 seconds into 2nd place finisher Brandon McNulty. A hard digging effort from Brandon would almost close the gap to Reedy, but still left him 12 seconds behind at the finish. Reedy would go solo on the final lap to seal the win. Alex Driscoll would cross the line solo as well as he chased the attacks from McNulty. Schmidtnecht and Connors would battle corner to corner the entire race and it was left to a sprint down the line for the 4th and 5th place.
Great racing from these guys!
Brandon McNulty (Landis/Trek) would later go one to win the Juniors under 18 race.
Kyle Reedy (Jetset Racing) would go on to take 2nd place in the Masters 35+ and Terry Schmidtnecht (Jetset Racing) would take 3rd in the Masters 35+ race later that afternoon.
