Two CVC Suburban Subaru riders in the Masters 40+ category- Massimiliano Accaputo and Mark Paggioli:
While trying to set the stage for the group to get things going during the first lap of the race, Mark Paggioli set out at the front of the group waiting for some riders to bridge to him. After almost completing the first 1/3 of the first lap the group rode to Mark to get things going. This set up Massimiliano Accaputo to bridge to what would be the break of the day with 9 riders going clear for the rest of the race. Mark, now riding in a support role would be sure to come across with any riders trying to make it to the break, but none of the attempts ever made it to the break and it stayed away until the end of the race with Massimiliano grabbing 8th place and Mark coming in with the group after his day of support riding was over. This marks the 3rd year in a row where these two riders have finished 2nd,7th, and today’s 8th here in New Hampshire and the lake Sunapee Road Race. Congrats to both Henk and Max!
In the Masters 59+ Race Don Kimball finished in 13th spot in a very tough race, congrats to Don for a strong finish.
The Men’s Pro 1,2,3 race had our guys Chris Kohnle and Connor Walsh, who both rode strong and finished within 10 seconds of the winner, in a very fast race as usual here at Sunapee. These two riders are just ramping up for the season and we’re expecting big rides out of them soon. Great ride guys.
