2013 Spring Classics Pool Wrap-Up

After 17 races and over 5500 points, the overall victory in the 2013 FGBC Spring Classics Pool came down to a scant 5 points. That is the vicarious racing equivalent of winning a race with a bike toss at the finish line because your tire tread is slightly less worn out. But anyone who's ever heard Bill try to start a lawnmower might invoke another, slightly more crude term to describe the thinness of the gap separating first place from second. Regardless of the preferred nomenclature, the Halfrican held on to take a very close win ahead of Prince Dan. The VP Style was a distant third, with Little M and Joe rounding out the top 5.

As for the final race of the season, I won that one. King Andy and Bill were second and third.

Full results and overall standings here.

I guess this means that the Giro is just around the corner. Check back for info on the 2013 FGBC Giro d'Italia Pool sometime soon.
