On one of the fastest criterium courses that you can find in the northeast of the United States, Lite Bites rider Mark Light lit it up. His team of Dean Rittenhouse, Trey Reinhardt, and Steve Speaks took control in the field which allowed the break to stay away.

With Mark in the break the team took charge knowing that Mark had a good chance of outsprinting his rivals Jakob Stephens (Snow Valley), Ben Lindsey (Rendell) and Hugh Moran (Construction Zone) following in 4th. "It was negative in the field; every time we tried to chase, a Lite Bites rider would disrupt it," a Team West Virginia rider said. Attempts were made between MVC Rider Matt Brungard and Freddy Fu riders Jason Zimmerman and George Yoder, but Lite Bites was always there. A late charge by Lancaster Brewing only lasted a couple laps, and they just couldn't bring it back. This Left Mark Light a chance to out sprint his rivals for the win and take home the most aggressive prize.


Jane Evely (Tri-Tech) took home the women's prize with the most aggressive rider award. Jane took the sprint from Jacqueline Paull (Colavita-Bolla) and the PA State Champ Nonnie Howard (Evolutions). The women's race was fast but the battle of the back straight wind caught a lot of riders off guard.

The talk of the town was 13 year old Sinead Miller (NHV/USFilter/Orbea). Talk about getting caught off guard. "It is ego-sobering to see a 13 year old put a whooping on you," one rider said. Sinead raced the Jr. Race, beat the majority of boys in the field and then entered the women's open where she placed 10th. She is going to be one to watch along with SVVC rider Elliot Gaunt.
