Tour de Syracuse - What a weekend!

posted May 18, 2009, 8:18 AM by Brian Klotz

The Corning Race Team had some impressive results this past weekend at the Tour de Syracuse!!  We had 6 top tens in the omnium (combination of all three races) including two 2nd place finishes by Dave Hansen (35+, Cat 5) and Ruth Sherman (Cat 4 Women).  We had two race winners:  Steve Burdette (Cat 5 35+ Crit) and Ruth (Cat 4 W Road Race) and 7 top ten finishes in individual races. 

Saturday's criterium race was especially challenging due to heavy winds in the morning and pouring rain in the afternoon.  All of our competing riders took it in stride and proved their toughness against some of the finest competition that New York and the region has to offer.  Sunday proved that our team is versatile and can come back and race after a hard day the day before.  A fast Time Trial in the morning, followed by an extremely challenging road race in the afternoon gave us some more great results.

Complete results are below.
