On April 7, several members of the Bike Lane road team headed to Charlottesville for the Jefferson Cup road race, bringing back some good results. Mike Kingery took 2nd in the 1/2/3 Master’s Men, James Studebaker took 2nd in the Men’s 3/4, and John Mead took 4th in the Men’s Cat 5, with Michael Collins right behind him in 10th.
More recently, the Bike Lane took two impressive first place finishes at the Chantilly Criterium. In the Women’s 1/2/3 race, Mary Tyson went with the attack on the last lap, and won by a bike throw at the finish.
In the Men’s Cat 3 race, a break went in the first half of the race. For the most part, people were not trying to chase them down, assuming they would not stay clear. As it become obvious that they would, James Studebaker and Aric Line attacked. At this point they had 45 seconds to make up on the break. A few people went with them, but eventually, James broke away and chased down the breakaway on his own. He caught the breakaway, sat in with them for a bit, dropped them, and won in a solo ride to the finish. Aric Line took 10th in the field sprint.
