•Women’s Race No.3• The women’s race was 20 laps @amyfooo took the first lap prime sponsors by @missioncrit and kept the pace high for the following laps! There were four women all very close until the end, @birbsprunter took the mid race prime sponsors by @epolivia the women kept rotating playing Cat and mouse. On the last few laps @birbsprunter made another attack for another prime lap and got some @theheavypedal store bucks! With the final 3 laps to go all four women were close together and waiting for the final sprint. Coming out of the final turn @ch.hashimoto launched her sprint to take her THIRD Copper State Crit Series Win in a row! Followed by @birbsprunter @amyfooo and @jqbikes right behind! Thank you everyone who came out to support, Race, help, and much more! You are all amazing and so great! See you next season! 📸@fixedgearfridays
•Men’s Race No.3• Race started with the biggest field we have seen this year! So first we want to say thank you to everyone! After talking with the men we decided to turn this race into a 40 Lap Race. First lap prime sponsored by @missioncrit was taken by @jakespelman from team @madebykingdom giving him easily enough points to take the overall win this series he kept the pace high for the first two laps with @basecartel and @thronecycles pushing it as well to string out the field. After 12-13 laps @sean_mcelroy1 sent an attack with his teammates to make sure no one could follow. @diegobinatena and @oneenooneone where the chase after a lap leaving everyone else behind. After a few laps the time from the lead rider to the two man chase was coming down. After the mid race prime sponsors by @epolivia there was 7 racers on the course that hadn’t been lapped or pulled out. Coming into the straight @oneenooneone had a wreck coming out of the final turn after a lap we had to stop the race to make sure the rider down was okay. After making sure the rider was okay we talked to the men left in the race to see who wanted to continue to race they decided no which would give @sean_mcelroy1 the win after having a very big gap on the whole field. Our men’s podium for race no.3 was Sean, Diego, Jerry! Thank you everyone who came out and raced we know how dangers these races are and think you are all amazing and badass riders and racers! Thanks again for the support this series and we hope to see you all next year! 📸@brian_hanson_photography
