We couldn’t have asked for a bet­ter race day at the lakes; not only was the weather per­fect, but our guys came out strong and confident!
Races kicked off early with a Cat 5 field of 25 guys  — Dan Tekem­pel and Erik Schmidt rep­re­sented for RideOn and they didn’t let us down.  Rid­ing strong the entire race Dan took turns on the front dri­ving the pace while Erik showed a pre­vi­ous Junior Rider that these races are hard work. 

As the bell rang for the final lap Dan pushed even harder and as the final group rounded the cor­ner a group of 15 guys raced for the sprint where Dan was vic­to­ri­ous with a 2nd place win!  Eric fin­ished strong with 20th place.
Cameron Schmidt and Tyler How­man rode for RideOn in the Junior field with 7 other rid­ers.  The race kicked off at a very fast pace for the juniors which weeded out a lot of rid­ers right from the get go.  Cameron fin­ished in 3rd place while Tyler worked hard to not come in last and fin­ished in 8th place.

The Cat 4 race was pulled by Carey Fer­gu­son set­ting the pace for the first half of the race, where he fin­ished in 7th place. 
While Joel pushed impres­sively for a 4th place finish!

The Mas­ters race had the biggest show­ing of the day with 38 rac­ers in the field.  Joel Schmidt hadn’t had enough dur­ing the Cat 4 race so he took to the Mas­ters race where he also took 4th place!  Ted Pablo raced strong win­ning the $10 preme and win­ning 9th place.

Last, but cer­tainly not least, the Cat 1, 2, 3 race kicked off with 27 rid­ers in the field. Todd How­man rep­re­sented RideOn and helped to bridge up not one but two breaks.  After 15 laps, with 15 to go, the field started to dwin­dle down and by lap 25 the lead break stuck with 5 rac­ers fight­ing for the fin­ish. Todd fin­ished 14th over­all, with a 2nd place win as a Cat 3.
