Race Communiqué Niwot Circuit Race 6/26/2016

 

Thank you to Barry Lee and the entire race staff for putting on a race that was logistically challenging.

 

2 cars got in front of the field of the MM 50+ 1-2-3 in the final sprint and slowed down preventing a fair and safe sprint. Riders wisely slowed down and passed the car on the right. The entire field was awarded 7th place with top 6 going to riders that had broken away previously and not affected by the car.

 

With the open roads and heavy traffic, rider safety was put at a priority. The finish stretch had cars going in the opposite direction and centerline rule  was applied everywhere.

 

  • MM50+1-2-3 rider #308 was DQ for crossing the centerline (rule 3B1)
  • SM4 rider #438 was DQ for crossing the centerline (rule 3B1) in the final sprint (rule 3B1)
  • SWP-1-2 rider #707 was DQ for crossing the centerline (rule 3B1) in the final sprint (rule 3B1)
