With the final event in the Cascadia Criterium Series series fast approaching, RCR has two very well placed riders. After going 1-2 at Ballard, Matt Mikul and Kyle Brown-Wollin rolled into the Brad Lewis Memorial Criterium owning the top two spots in the series. While Matt retained his tight grip on the series lead over the mean cracks and potholes of Boat Street, Kyle dropped a few places, though the podium should be in reach.
Matt approaches this weekend’s final race in Tacoma with a commanding 113 point lead over second place. Matt simply has to finish no worse than 17th and prevent the rider in second from collecting any series point primes. Easy enough.
The real suspense lies with Kyle Brown-Wollin. He currently sits in fourth place, just 20 points out of third, and 54 points out of second, with a comfortable 119 point margin over fifth place. Cracking the top three should be a piece of cake if Kyle can put five places on the third place rider while finishing anywhere in the top 20. Second is within reach too. Kyle can do this. He’s a good bike rider.
The number crunching staff here at Recycled Cycles Racing News predicts two of the three steps on the podium will belong to RCR when all is said and done. But don’t rely on the numbers guys, go out and crush it!
If your travel plans for Saturday night aren’t confirmed yet, do it now. It should be a great show in Tacoma.
