Quite the day, for the Brewer's... THATS for sure!!!
As told on race day by T.Lyle:
Race report from the North: Sunday 10/6 saw 4 AG3R related folks venture north to the Tour de Tamarack and brought home some hardware, or rather in Steve's case, a lion a la the TDF.
Steven Brewer rode the 30 Mile Intermediate race and feared the hills. Yet he stayed in the lead group till the final descent/ascent where he charged out of the few remaining riders, gapped them on the descent and held on to win on the uphill finish.
Hannah Brewer rode the 20 mile citizen race, finishing 2nd in her age group.
Rich and I also rode the 20 miler with Rich finishing 2nd in his age group and I missed the win by 1 second, passing up the other 7 of the lead group on the final ascent, rounding the uphill bend in the lead, but having someone pass me in the last 20 yards.
