PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: TEAM ACTIVE END OF WINTER PARTY FRIDAY FEB. 28!!!!!
|Brian Yost and Beard Ice|
The race was a cold deep mess. 10 degrees, deep snow and 2 hours of pedaling, pushing and tipping over. 5th Place.
Race number 4 was the following weekend in Saugatuck. The temps were warmer, but the snow was deeper. Fun Promotions did what they could with conditions and created a short L shaped course around the parking lot and up the road. One short climb and two long straight aways.
|Big Wheels rolling early on.|
The 45 minute race started fast. I had something to prove after my poor showing at Addison. I tried to stick with the top 4 guys right away.

|My view for the better half of the race|
Two Masters rides made an early move that I could not match, so I tried settling in with Matt Smith, pictured above. He wasn't very interested in having me along for the ride and he took off shortly there after.
I stayed on the gas and kept him in site all while putting time on the chasing group of four riders.
By the end of the 45 minutes, I was toast, but on the podium for the first time in 2014.
|It pays to be tall, almost looks like I am on the tall step.|
As always, a very special thanks for the support from Team Active, and WSI Cycling.
