Race Report: Bethel Series, Conn., 6 March 05

Submitted by Chris Forsyth

I went to Bethel this morning. It's a nice course with a short, steep uphill finish that can really break up the pack. There were about 60 riders in Cat. 5s, so they split us in half depending on bib numbers. I got stuck with about seven guys riding with Bethel Cycle. They blew apart the field on the climb, sending two guys ahead with four laps left and then tried to slow down anyone chasing. A few of us were able to keep them close despite the blocking. I jumped a little too early on the last climb as we pulled in the leader and settled for fourth, one spot out of the money.
