Chappell Hill Road Race (2010-09-12)

Chappell Hill is a lolly pop of endless chip seal. Heavy humidity and low 90s made it a grinding race against exhaustion and cramping. This is the finish of the men’s CAT 3 field. At 50 miles out of 74 Matt Kessing bridged up to and then passed the standing 4 person break away. A 2min gap turned into 25sec at the finish line, but he held it together and took the win with another mid race effort much like his 2nd place finish on Monday at the Tour of Austin Pickle Research Center crit. The follow group split in two on the second to last hill coming back into town. The final climb to the finish saw an additional split of 12 heading for the line, trying to get into the top 8 moneyed positions.
