As promised, here are some additional photos of last Sunday's Hartford Crit courtesy Bill Morgan Photography. If you like what you see, be sure to contact him. He's not only a great photographer (which is self-evident) but a great guy. Enjoy the show!
In the thick of it . . .
Teammate Esteban doing his Sastre impersonation - laying down the hurt and barely needing to breathe.
Team Greater Hartford working together to protect strongman Tim Ratta (winner of the Plainville Spring Series), with CVC/Subaru of New England, in the form of Stan and yours truly trying to keep them in sight.
SOC & SDC gasping for air and sucking wheel down the descent into corner #2.
My favorite shot of this group of pics: Teammates Esteban, Dave & me with HOB in the center for good measure.
Team CVC keepin' it together. Me acting in the role of domestique, trying to take care of the team leader, though I wasn't able to do as much for him as I'd hoped.
Super domestique for the day was Stan who got Dave as far to the front as possible, giving him at least a fighting chance against many larger teams. Here, Stan's just peeled off and Dave digs deep to get to the line.
With apologies to Esteban (not sure where he was at this point), CVC doing a cool-down lap. . .
. . . and off into the, er, not sunset I s'pose - but at least another race together and another notch on our belts as the Cat 3 team for CVC/Subaru of New England.
