Whoa Gary, What Happened?

31 races into the season, Gary finally had a bad day. At yesterday's Scheldecross, he picked up a paltry 40 points. Even the bottom feeders of the FGBC CX Pool--you know who you are--managed to do better than that. Gary finishes dead last by over 30 points. Might this be a sign that he peaked too early? Probably not. But that's what Johnny M is hoping. He picked up 165 points on Gary and now sits just 65 points back of the overall lead. It looks like we have ourselves a battle for the much coveted title of 2008-09 FGBC CX Pool Champion. This week's news that Georgia Gould is heading over to do the European races was also good news for Johnny M. But it sounds like Albert will be racing again before the season is over. That will help Gary, so Johnny will need to start building a lead soon before Albert comes back and helps Gary to a late-season surge.

Vic had the best showing on the day. He picked up 380 points. Bill and Rachel rounded out the podium with 320 and 240 points, respectively.

As for the race itself, Thijs Al picked up his first big win of the season. Vantornout and Simunik were second and third. Nys sat this one out. Kupfernagel won the women's race ahead of Vos and Cant. Wendy Simms was the only FGBC CX Pool racer to show up. Her 75 points are what gave Vic his win. Head on over to CN for the rest of the story.
