There was some great racing action at the Laughing Planet Cafe/Cirque du Cycling event on Mississippi Avenue on Saturday. The heat tested the racers, but the crowds more than made up for it.
Speaking of crowds, racer Samuel Nicoletti (Gentle Lovers) might have gotten a bit carried away by their loud roars on the finishing straight. He had a small lead over Quinn Keogh (Rubicon-ORBEA/Lance Armstrong Foundation) and raised his hands in the air to celebrate. The only problem was, he did it a bit premature and Keogh nipped him at the line. Check out the photo series below to see the reactions of both racers as it happened…
Congrats to Quinn, Samuel, and all the racers for putting on such a great show.
