Successful escapes are not uncommon at the weekly Bud's Ride, and tonight added another tally mark in that column. Three riders came into view well ahead of the bunch, the first two, both with Incycle / Cannondale, outdistanced the third just in the last couple hundred meters to double up for 1st and 2nd. When the big group came charging into view (was it even thirty seconds later?) they were led home for 4th by the race-faced rider from Surf City.
A lot of chatter about this weekend's San Dimas Stage Race among the gathered spectators, as well as in the group on the ride home. Race hard.
