Augusta Race Report

A report from our friends at Skylands Racing on this week’s race:

As we begin to close on the 2012 Augusta race series. Last night’s Tuesday ‘A’ race saw probably the best racing of the year. Some of the top racers on the East coast showed up, including Florida pro-racer Donny Autore and an Olympic hopeful from Venezuela. Under perfect conditions, the ‘A’ racers put on a dazzling display of speed and power. Attacks and counter attacks were constant throughout the 1 1/2 hr.race. Cat 1 Bill Elliston and Visiting Pro racer Donny Autore powered a 2 man break early on but the talented field blitzed all the attacks until with 2 laps to go, Cat 2 Andreas Runggatscher, FinKraft Cycling Team propelled out of the field and stayed away for the win. Mike DeGeorge took the field sprint, while series leader Keith Hala looks to take the top honors for the year.
