In a race that was bigger and more competitive than last week’s edition, tonight’s Volcano After-Party featured another strong showing by NCC riders.

The pace at the front was high, and Dusty, Zinj, and Henry hung there throughout the race. Michael, Charlie, and Melissa stayed up front for a while, and then fell back into the chase groups. Jonathan was plagued with power drops in the early part of the race, which turned the whole thing into an ITT for him.

Dusty grabbed the win among the NCC riders, finishing 24th out of 302 finishers. Zinj and Henry were both in the top 35, and Melissa was the second overall finisher among the women.

Note that the points awarded for TDZ races give bonuses for women (10%) and for categories (A 0%, B 5%, C 25%, D 40%).
