Kandra, Tresser take PIR Monday Night week-two wins
(The complete photo gallery from Monday nights' race is posted online HERE).
After last week's biblical spring downpour stifled turnout for the River City Bicycles Monday Night Race Series opener May 4, more than 150 racers turned out to kick off the series properly this week.
Lindsay Kandra (Hammer Velo), one of those brave riders who faced the opening-week weather maelstrom, picked off her first PIR Women's 1/2/3 win of the season with 21 points in a race decided by a combination of points earned in hot spot laps and the grand finale. Kandra continued her duel with Beth Burns (Veloce/Felt), who took the win on week one and finished second Monday night with 16 points. Anne Linton finished third with 10 points, while Kira Crawford, who finished third on week one, slipped to fourth this week with eight points.
Cyclepath's Christian Tresser continued his Tuesday night pace, picking off the final sprint and tallying 16 overall points in the Masters Men 1/2/3 race. Shannon Skerritt (Vanilla Bicycles) was second with 12 points, and Specialized River City's Joseph Holcomb was third with 10.
Week-one winner David Hopper (NoMad Sports Club) slipped to fifth this week with seven points, just behind Portland Velo's Matt D'Elia in fourth with eight.
