Fireworks & Thursday night at the Rockleigh Crit

With the Fourth of July holiday and associated fireworks giving way to a slow Thursday at the office three members of Team Sixcycle-RK&O headed across the GWB to partake in the Thursday evening Rockleigh Crit Series. In the extremely hot and humid conditions the racing was clean and highly strategic, with the two biggest teams in attendance saving the fireworks for the final two laps of the race.  Team Sixcycle-RK&O’s Corey Morenz spent some time off the front in the day’s primary break while Bryan Fried also threw in some attacks for the team. After a furious final two laps and a small bunch sprint to the line the race was won by Champ-System p/b Stan’s NoTubes’ Greg Olsen, who spent the majority of the day off the front.
