Point Blank
Thanksgiving Point, May 27, 2006

The team fielded 23 racers for the Point Blank race at Thanksgiving Point. Once again, for the second week in a row, we broke our record for racers on-course, and set a new high for team point production! During the race, it was cold and windy, but tolerable. Mother Nature got unpleasant during the award ceremony, which was downright freezing.

Team members combined for 72 points (after one point was dropped due to three top-seven finishers in a single category. An incredible 17 riders scored team points! We missed getting photos of David Wilde (3rd place, Beginner Men 19-29), and Sammy Bria (17th place, 10-12).
