Ryan White had a strong weekend of racing with two second place podium finishes at the Silver Lake Criterium and 4th place at the Wheel and Sprocket Neenah Criterium.
In both races Ryan was in a select group that formed a 5 man break-away that was able to get away from the main field of racers.
The Silver Lake criterium features a technical course with hair-pin turns and rolling hills totaling 2000 feet of climbing per race. Ryan finished 2nd in both the Masters (age 35 plus) Category 1/2/3 race and the Pro Category 1/2 race!
In the race, Ryan experienced a small mechanical issue – he was unable to shift and finished the last 9 laps in a single gear. No shifts for the hills and no extra gears for the final sprint.
Think of an anvil, then think rule number 5 and you’ll see a picture of Ryan!
