Zwift Tuesday Night Worlds (US/East) Training Race Report 2015-11-17

More than 50 riders showed up to contest the US/East edition of the Zwift Tuesday Night Worlds training race. This week we were back in Richmond doing a 3 lap race (the first quarter lap neutral). Thanks again to M. Hoogerland for leading the Group C&D neutral in this staggered start.

C. Swanson was the only woman finisher, holding her own in the C group and finishing the race segment with more than a 33 km/h average.

A group of 3 made it to the last climb of Governor Street together. B. Boniface attacked early but committed the faux pas of using a powerup on the climb. G. Staley and A. Baron managed to close the gap by the turn onto the finishing straight. Boniface immediately upped the pace, opening a gap to Baron and Staley. Staley launched a long sprint at about 300m to go and was able come around Boniface with Baron trailing a second behind. Due to his powerup usage, Boniface was relegated to third in the final results.

C. Ridgick soloed in to victory in the B group. He was followed a minute later by J. Wilson, with M. Lavoie a further 23 seconds back.

T. Schneider took the Group C win. D. McKeon followed some 41 seconds back, with J. Snyder third a little more than a minute further back.

R. McCulloch toughed out the late-night ride and was the only D group finisher, thus getting to stand on the top step of the podium.
