A bit late in posting the report from the Clear Lake Races last weekend but our Twisted Spokes brought home medals; money and prizes in a spectacular weekend of racing. Leif Lujan, Mark & Alijah Beatty, John Adamson, Richard Gilmore, Rob Haaland Nic Sabatke, Danny Warrington, Tom Klenske, Mike Foster and Kathleen Porter took part in all or some of the races - the Omnium - consisting of a Time Trial, Criterium and a Road Race.
The Criterium event happened to be The Iowa State Criterium Championships and the team did outstanding! On the Podium:
Alijah Beatty - Silver - Jr Women 13-14
Leif Lujan - Silver - Jr Men 17-18
Rob Haaland - Gold - The Cat 5 Iowa State Crit Champion!! Awesome!
John Adamson - Gold - Men's Master 60+ Iowa State Crit Champion. This makes for his 32nd Iowa State Championship Gold medal. An amazing racer.
Richard Gilmore - Bronze - Men's Master 60+
In what was some very tough competition in every event at Clear Lake the team had two Omnium Podium Finishers.
|Rob Haaland - Third Place - Cat 5|
|John Adamson - Third Place - Master 60+|
Congratulations to all the Twisted Spokes Racers for toeing the line at one of the biggest Iowa racing weekends of the year. Always well done by the North Iowa Spin folks and Tim Putnam's capable direction.
