Northfield ranks as my favorite Minnesota Criterium. So it’s no surprise that I threw it all at the year’s race. Last year Aric and I fell short of a flyin Dan Swanson taking the silver and bronze medals respectively in what was a hotly contested State Championship event. This year’s race was no different. A lot of local favorites were here with full team support. Eric Marcotte’s agressive riding paid off with a win. Aric Hareland did his best to keep me at the front on the last couple of laps with Hollywood and Snider assisting. Winnings were spent at the Contented Cow.. can’t wait for next year… 3rd in ’06, 2nd in ’07.. do the math.
Mark Skarpohl, my long time time trial mentor, made his presence known at the front of the race..
