The Day of Insanity Award goes to the State Road Race Championship. Holy pizza, that was a crazy race. It was HOT, HOT, HOT.
The Holy Socks Award (awarded to the best public display of pain) is awarded to Jake Spelman. He went down 3 times within 4 weeks. He really displayed the pain.
The Long Time Cat 3 Award is awarded to- okay, now I know everyone tends to get really offended when I lay this award on somebody. I believe this award is up to snuff, though. I counted up Dan De Mos's points over an 18 month stretch from TBC of last year to the DC Ranch Crit of this year. In that span of time, he recorded 40 points. It was 47 points if I counted TBC as having 50 starters. That's...a lot of points.
The Super Field Fodder Award will go to Darrell Anderson, my own father, for the drubbing he went through at Avondale. He made the hard choice to enter the Pro 1/2 race. It was a brave decision. The field was decimated by the likes of Marcotte, Brown, and Rubelt. During the Havoc, Anderson was popped, yet clawed his way back to finish 12th.
