Our team had another
successful race weekend at the Athens Criterium on Saturday, April 25th,
and the Historic Roswell Criterium on Sunday, April 26th. Andrew Macrae,
14, was this weekend's star as he won both Junior 10-14 criterium races in
solo fashion by dropping the fields on consecutive days.

Andrew's win in the
Athens Criterium was Frazier Cycling's first ever podium placing in the
event. He broke away about halfway through the race and soloed to
victory. Philip O'Donnell attacked late in race and placed
third giving Frazier Cycling our second podium position. Zoe
Frazier took the field sprint for fourth place as the top female
Prior to this
year's result at Athens, our best finish was David Goodman's
seventh place in the 2007 Juniors 10-14 race. This year, we had
four performances in the top seven for one of the largest Junior fields
in this region:
Andrew Macrae, 1st

Macrae continued his hot streak as he had a particularly good day on Sunday.
After another solo breakaway victory in the Junior Men's 13/14 race,
Andrew placed fourth in the Men's Category 4/5 race. There
were more than 90 starters in the men's race. He stayed near the front for most of the
race, although he got
caught behind a crash about midway through the 40-minute contest.
Fortunately, teammate Philip O'Donnell, 13, paced Andrew back up
to the leaders. Not only did Andrew finish in the money with
his fourth place finish in the final mad sprint, but he won a primes in
a lap sprint earlier in the race.
His prize was $100 in merchandise.
