I could have predicted this outcome. While riding in the Saturday group, Luke Russell appeared to have his game face on. The look of a guy who was completely focused on the next day's race. And so, check out the above pic of Luke, winner of the Cat 3 race in a deep field of 45 in Spring Valley, which attracted a lot of Cincy cyclists. Knowing Luke, he will be mortified that I posted this image but I could not resist. Others who did well were Sokha Bun (rides both Tuesday and Thursday New Albany rides), Mike Cauley (5th in Cat 5), Matt & Pete Ashmore (the former crashing but finishing 17th in Cat 5), Scott Billman (1st in Masters 55-59/Cat 5), Doug McConaha, Scott Young, Philippe, Lori Nedescu (3rd in Cat 2), Tavis (4th in Cat 3), Ken Buddell, etc...
