Well Saturday morning started out great in Evansville for Tony Young and Dave Caldwell. The weather was nice, sunny and not too warm with a small breeze from the storm that would roll in later in the day.
After making it back to do the usual pinning of numbers, hydrating, fueling up and warming up on the trainer… it was time to take a few laps on the course before the race started. Dave and Tony both raced in the Masters 40+, which also lined up with Masters 50+. There were 39 guys lined up to race overall.
The race started and it was full throttle for the first 15 min. The rest of the race settle in and Tony and Dave found it was a lot smoother race than they were used to in the 4/5 races.
The pace picked back up with about 4 laps and then really sped up at 1 lap to go. Anthony stayed up around the 3 to 4 position till the last corner with about 300 meters to go. As the bunch sorted themselves out and were sprinting to the finish Tony found himself in 11th place overall and 9th place in age group, but first as a cat 4 racer. Due to this showing Tony was in the Money! Dave finished in 18th place.
