Boys in Black ride to Gold

"There's a lot of black out there!" - A racer commenting on the presence of the Cambridge Team at the New England Velodrome

It was a good day for the Cambridge Bicycle Track Team, who took home multiple medals in the events at the New Hampshire Amateur State Games this past Tuesday. The team took home gold medals in both the A and C Olympic sprints. Jeremy Dunn was the lone Cambridge rider racing A's, but that didn't stop him from anchoring the cat A olympic sprint to gold. In the cat C olympic sprint, Aaron, Jordan, and Erik rode to gold despite Erik having a pedal strike coming out of turn three in the first lap.

The match sprint put two Cambridge men on the podium, with Aaron taking silver and Jordan taking gold. Erik fought his way to silver in the points race despite serious pressure from other competitors and some uneasy riders in the pack. I, n the second C points race Zach threw down and took home another silver medal for the boys in black. Lastly Jordan posted the second fasted cat C time for the Kilometer, rounding out the medal count.

It was a solid performance that brought well deserved attention to the individual and team talents that have developed on the Cambridge team, and another great night of racing at the New England Velodrome.

Nice job guys! We should really try to keep track of all of these excellent finishes in a spreadsheet. Race resumes are great way to upgrade categories and possibly, in the future, gain additional sponsorship. Again, way to go Team CB!
