The Streak Has Been Broken – Velo CX – November 3rd, 2013

Top Natchez racer Brian Kozicki finally broke his streak of being just off the podium. Pushing himself to a 2nd place in the Men’s 35+ race, Brian earned a well deserved podium. Aaron Collins had unfortunate flat tire only 1/2 a lap into the men’s Cat 4/5 race, he made a valiant effort to get to the wheel pit and swap out to a neutral race wheel.  Thanks to Omnium Bike Shop for providing neutral race support at this event!  Later in the day, racer Bill Dick put it down in the Men’s 45+ race, but just couldn’t put enough down, managing a mid-pack finish.

With nice weather, and a great course rides Brian Kozicki and Aaron Collins doubled up on the races running 2nd races in the Men’s Cat 1/2/3 and Cat 4/5, respectively. With 45minutes of racing already under his belt, Brian hammered  through another 60 minutes of grueling racing to finish mid-pack. A strong achievement considering is previous podium in the morning. Aaron Collins also already had 45minutes under his belt(10 minutes of that jogging around the course!) but managed to score the hole shot in the Men’s Cat 4/5 race and maintained a strong pace for the first lap. Unfortunately his fitness was not what it needed to be to hang with the lead group, and was slowly relegated back to a mid-pack finish.
