Georgia Cyclo-cross series #5 - Marietta, GA November 12, 2006
Fetty and Travelgirls victorious in Georgia 'cross
By Adam Jones
The 5th race of the Georgia Cross Series was held November 12, 2006 in Marietta , Georgia . The course was on the north side of Atlanta and as always drew a huge crowd. Perfect weather big fields proved to be the perfect combination to generate some great racing.
The Women’s A race saw an exciting battle between the Travel Girl duo of Kim Sawyer and Kim Foland and Outspokin’s Ellen Carroll. The three stayed together for the first lap until Sawyer broke free on the second lap with Foland in tow. Sawyer and Foland worked together to distance the hard chasing Carroll and then fought out the win with Sawyer taking the glory.
The Men’s A race saw Jacob Fetty of Thebikegame.com score a win over series leader Michael Cummings of KHS/Cycleyouth. Tim Barrett of Myogensis animated the race with an early attack and Fetty counterattacked to break away from the small group a little over midway through the hour long race. Cummings and three others continued to chase to no avail. Fetty never let off the gas and won with a comfortable margin.
