Fast guys

Cat 1 2 super fast. This race was so fun to watch - except for the crash, which happened because one racer didn't know another was deaf. When the first racer communicated his intentions around a tight corner, the second didn't hear, and four riders went down.

For one prime, the audience pitched in cash and the riders ended up sprinting for about $105. It appears the race directors use the primes to get the racers busting loose to make it more entertaining. And these guys sure did ... sprinting into the wind and getting speeds over 35 mph.
