Univest Grand Prix 2008: Recap

Monday, September 08, 2008

While I did not make it into town this year to see any of the race, I was held up at a traffic light to let the racers bike by me. A pair of traffic cops held me at a stop sign moments after the race started and after sitting through three green lights the helicopter starting coming my way providing aerial coverage, the police escort drove by, followed by the team cars with extra bikes and parts ready to go, and then the horde of bikers turned the corner in the early stages of the race.

It was pretty cool. Unfortunately the weather didn't exactly help me out with killing time before the Penn State game. Instead of going out to watch the race conclude, I stayed inside to watch college football.

Lucas Euser (USA) of the Garmin-Chipotle team finished in first. Teammate Pat McCarty finished in third and Frederick Ericsson from Sweden came in second.
