4/12 Derby Brief Report

Much the way "Tornado" Tom Boonen rode the fastest guys off his wheel at the conclusion of 2009 Paris-Roubaix, U23 Cannondale/Champion Team rider Travis Livermon (literally) rode away from a strong Derby Orange Grove field Sunday. Only Triangle Velo rider Keith Gerarden was able to give chase but in the end fell 30 seconds short. Livermon narrowly missed Green Jersey classification but claimed the 7th Sector Prime and more importantly, the coveted Bradshaw Quarry Cobble for the overall. The injury report was minimized to bruised egos, and mechanicals in la Trouee d' Buckhorn were few and far between. Full report and images to come.

The Forest of Buckhorn is hardly as intense as la Trouee d' Arenberg but enjoy below highlights from past Roubaix.

Thanks for another great race, Matt. If every event I did was as fun as Derby Orange Grove,well, I'd be much happier to race.

Man, that Arenberg footage is amazing to watch. Hope you had only a fraction of that chaos in the Derby.
