What a great race!
We all gathered at Harbor Island and where we had the start/finish planned was unfortunately RIGHT next to a wedding reception so we moved the start/finish to a safer spot in the park. We found a little spot out in the open but hidden enough that the 30+ spectators could hang out in peace.
The format of this race was ELIMINATION where however many enter, that’s how many laps. Each lap was 2.8 miles and ten people entered.
Mark Caporale led the pack for the first lap but then he just freaking TOOK OFF and ended up finishing with about a 2:45 lead on 2nd and 3rd. It was insane. Everyone watching was absolutely blown away at how much of a lead he had and he showed no signs of slowing down. He posted this on his facebook which shows just how much this 39 year old is in tune with his training :
“Perhaps it just looks like I go out there and push it til I nearly lose my lunch, but riding fast is an exact science that requires years of practice and intimate self-knowledge of your own limits. This is why I do it; the quest for truth in the inmost being. And btw: if you want to win a race or at the very least do the very best you possibly can with the physical gifts God gave you, this is how it’s done son!” – Mark Caporale
3rd : Sergio Soto
2nd : Jack Barrena
1st : MARK CAPORALE
