This Bud's For You, 20 August

It had been a while since last i saw so many racers still in the game so late in the ride/race. It was as if the approaching dark times had instilled some late-season inspiration into the combatants. From a couple hundred meters out it was still a full stampede, but in closing the gap to the line three emerged in the clear. With some encouraging yells, and maybe some threats, from teammates now out of the hustle and consigned to watching from behind the action, the three became two. One final, out of the saddle, burst of speed brought the one to the line - to this week's victor, this Bud's for you.
