Cycling has no roof over the courses and even it is 2017 we are still looking for that perfect clothing to protect us from the elements . The Bear Mountain Road Race was a perfect example how mother nature always is and always will be still stronger than anyone of us . Heavy rain and pretty cold temps where on the menu for this year’s edition . No cobble stones, no tight towns to fly through , but still an epic course with the classic 50 mph down hill and a 180 degree turn at the bottom.
Our FinKraft troops Roger, Herb and Rob lined up and raced our bikes to our best ability. Small field , but still a race and a few good strong men showed up. Frank O’Reilly was the strongest of the day and rode away for the win. That left us to fight for 2nd or survival , however we look at it . We came , finished and all went home with a smile on our face .
