The sun will come out....today! Finally!
Looks like summer may no longer be a fluke.
A toasty day in McDonald, PA for the annual Fort Classic. With temps hovering in the 80's and the wind light - it was a perfect day for the annual road race to go off in fine style.
A decent sized field kicked off the Masters' race for a wild ride around some beautiful Washington County back country roads.

On the final lap - a group of 15 or so broke the will of the field and the infamous almost-but-not-quite-a-hill-climb took it's toll on the weary (being me and many others).
Despite my best efforts I saw a lead group ride away as I struggled but never quite caught back on.
C'est la vie Fort Classic.
