Cat 4 Race Report
(by Aaron Deutsch)

I think this may be the first Prospect Park race of the summer I’ve been in without a crash. Pace was quick throughout with an attack being launched in every one of the 8 laps around the course.

There were a lot of strong riders who gradually ramped the pace up over the last lap. Though there was a good team presence, I did not see any organized team efforts to lead out a sprinter at the end.

Nauofal made an early break on the right leading up to the finish while I was trapped on the left. When the bikes parted I was able to make up places but not enough to crack the top 10.

Here are some photos from the race:
