Saturday morning San Jacinto County near Lake Livingston. Mike Haney executes a perfectly planned race to take the first place trophy in the 45 mile roller road race at Coldspring - and finished in the top 10 in the combined 50/60 field.
A field of about 40 started off in ideal conditions; after two neutral miles the pace picked up with several moves off the front, but nothing stuck. Riders were paying attention, but after the first climb of three up the finish hill the effort continued over the subsequent rollers, splitting the field in two. The pace varied, one of two racers came back, one or two got dropped. Mike lined up on the last 60+ racer of the survivors and came around with 200 meters of heart-busting hill to go. Kudos!
