Sage Bauers fending off Ron Shevock for 2nd
Sage Bauers put it all out there for the overall series win on Sundays’ 65 degree, Jaunary 22, Finale. The final race of the series was held at the Folsom Rodeo. This was without a doubt the best course layout this venue has seen. Everyone had strengths and weaknesses on this course, and it came down to race tactics, end of the season fitness, and sheer will. Sage did beat Ron Shevock on the day, but it was not enough to overtake him for the series win.
Other finishers were Peter Knudsen finished 4th in the single speed race, Jim Macdonald in 6th, Greg Ries in 10th, and Derek Daun in 14th.

Mike Macdonald winning this all out sprint.
Race Age 70, Mike Macdonald, took control of the sprint over the final 50 meters. We all hope to be able to do the same when we reach the same age. Absolutely Awesome!
