Lees-McRae wins Nats, CSU rider wins crit

Fort Leisure put up a good fight but in the end they lost to a small school in North Carolina, Lees-McRae.

CSU rider, Phil Mann, won the Division 1 criterium race today. A quick google search of the rider shows that this is not his first time, looks like he won last year too!

Velonews ran a great story on all the racing and here is a snippet from it...

The day’s biggest fanfare came at the finish of the Division I men’s race, which saw hometown favorite Phil Mann of Colorado State University repeat his criterium championship from 2007. In 2007 Mann took the victory by jumping clear of a breakaway. In 2008 he won the bunch kick at the line. He jumped free after his teammates brought back a surprise attack by Virginia Tech rider Ben King, also a rider on the Kelly Benefits-Medifast pro team.
