Timmerman tops the field in story

Under 23 racer Luke Keough takes second overall

Ryan Timmerman (Richard Sachs-RGM-Radix) proved to be the toughest through the storm in the elite men's race during the opening day of the Downeast Cyclo-cross Weekend.

Unlike the women's race, the men's race was, in fact, a repeat of the weekend in Vermont with Timmerman powering away from the field on the first lap, creating a gap of 15 seconds and never looking back. Behind Timmerman was a serious battle between Luke Keough (Team Champion System) and Derrick St. John (Garneau/Club Chassures/Ogilvy).

Behind them was a powerful group with Adam Myerson (Cycle-Smart) and bikereg.com/Joe's Garage/IF riders Jerome Townsend and Justin Lindine.

With two to go, St. John had faded and it seemed that the podium would be sealed but Josh Dillon (Richard Sachs/RGM/Radix) put on a charge of epic proportions, blowing through seemingly comfortable gaps into third position on the road. As Dillon passed Lindine, there was still a minute up the road to Keough, but Dillon was seeing red and closed into within mere bike lengths at the finish with an emphatic third.

The Masters was a race among three giants in the field. Westwood Velo's national champion Roger Aspholm and Corner Cycle's dynamic duo, Johnny Bold and Kevin Hines took off from the gun and left the rest of the field in their wake. Knowing the Corner Cycle riders to be stronger handlers and with the course rapidly deteriorating, Aspholm put the pressure on early in the race and at one point, it looked like he may have had Bold on the verge of falling away.

After his spot of bother, Bold returned with a vengeance, regaining the pair at the front and riding away from Aspholm with his teammate. The last three laps had Bold and Hines matching each other move for move, extending their lead over Aspholm.

At the finish, the pair crossed the line together, hands in the air with Bold crossing first and pulling on the leader’s jersey. Aspholm maintained his third place to keep him in second in the overall standings.

The Under 19 juniors race was quickly sorted out as the Joshua Lehmann show, with the Sunapee/S&W/Continental Paving racer riding away from everyone. The chase was led by Jesse Keough (Corner Cycle) and Tommy Goguen (Minuteman Road Club) with Keough dropping Goguen with two to go. When it all finished, Lehmann had over a minute on Keough with Goguen over two and a half minutes back.
