2009 GMSR Criterium: Svensk Power

As usual at the end of Labor Day Monday, I am dirty and tired and ready to fall asleep at a ridiculously early hour. Here are some photos from today, I was working and didn't have much time to roam the course with a camera.

The Swedish Cykelcity.se team had a great day, winning the stage and moving Johan Lindgren into third overall thanks to aggressive riding.

The pro men final overall GC podium. The Vermont artisan vodka given to the sprint classification leaders was a popular prize all day long.

Long time sponsor Earthycars.com parked a smart car on the course as an marketing device, but used a Porsche as a pace vehicle.

The Category 3 men line up for their race with Lake Champlain in the background.

Marshall Ambros won the 3s race in what was probably the ride of the day, riding solo and almost lapping the field in a bold attempt to recapture the overall lead. He fell short by five seconds.

Ex-Soviet National Team rider Dmitry Buben won the Masters 50 in a solo move. I have to admire the lifetime dedication to the bike of some of the masters riders.

The day started with a fast and furious Juniors race.
