Pawling CAT 4/5 Race Report - Chris Schwenker WINS!
In this finish line photo Chris is passing riders from the other CAT 4 field.
He has a 40 yard lead on the second place CAT 4/5 racer at the rear of the picture.
90 degrees, sunny and 40 miles of intense country road climbing. A nice barbecue, a lake for swimming and a little beer topped off a sweet day. It was nice to see he had his family there as well to savor the moment and look for payback from their great support.
Kris Saether, Mike and Owen helped Chris for the first 6 miles and then a well timed attack by Chris Schwenker splintered the field for the rest of the race.
There is no mystery or magic elixir to Chris winning this tough race. He trained very hard, scouted out the course weeks prior and peaked for this race.
Thanks to the promoters who put on a well organized, safe and enjoyable race!
