I work only 15 minutes from today's race location so I skipped out a little early to see the start.

I got caught drooling all over this guys C40:

I dare the stem police to comment:

Nuetral support in full force:

It was a +/- 6 mile circuit which was shaped like a dumbell. The start finish was in the middle. It was nice because they raced by in both directions on every lap.

The middle section was relatively straight and flat:

All these posers just blew the red light :-)

At one end of the course they rode into a park, did a loop, and left on the same road. I parked myself just inside the entrance for a few shots:

There goes the Nat. champ:

Our very own "Climbo" was camped out here as well (In the red and blue on the left):

The feed Zone was in the park too:

At the other end of the circuit went through downtown Trenton. They had to negotiate some tight turns on nasty pavement.

They stayed together for most of the race. No one ever got more than 30 sec ahead of the bunch. Horner tried to make something happen at the start of the last lap:

Just after that we had some carnage. Although he didn't continue, he looked fine.

Horner's stint off the front didn't last long. When they came back for the last half lap, CSC had four guys at the front driving the pace. In the end it paid off for them. Here's the finish:

The winner gets himself cleaned up. No BO for the podium girls.

The recovery drink of choice for his teammate:

That's all folks.

is you get so close to the action, during and after the race !! After the last lap I rode along the course and had people cheering for me, cops stopping traffic, it was great, the only time that'll ever happen.

Nice shots, a lot better than how mine turned out, hopefully I'll get some better ones Sunday.
