Voodoo Racing had seven riders in the top 10 of various categories following the time trial, putting us in a great position for the crit races on the 2nd day. We woke up to find a strong storm cell parked over Tyler hitting the city with strong winds, cold temperatures and hard rain. The race promoters decided to keep everyone safe and cancel the crits.
We took a trip to Lake Charles, LA this past weekend to compete in the Race du Lac stage race. We arrived as virtual unknowns, but quickly made our presence felt after the first stage with Voodoo racers in the GC top 5 of the Cat 3, Cat 4, and P/1/2 categories.
The following are Kent Myer’s own words about the brilliant coordinated efforts of our Cat 3 squad (Kent, Nate Sheetz, and Aaron Wade) that helped him win the Cat 3 GC at Corsicana this year:
Corsicana was one of the first stage races I did last year right after getting my cat 3 upgrade, I had such a great time I was looking forward to the race this year as all of the courses fit my strengths pretty well. We rolled into the host hotel early evening on Friday to find they had managed to lose our reservation, but luckily had a few teammates to bunk up with on rollaway beds.
The following are Kent’s own words about his GC win at the 2014 Iris Stagner Memorial Stage Race…
As we loaded up the car heading out Friday late morning heading to Mineral Wells, Garreth and I talked mainly about how ideal the weather conditions appeared to be compared to the last two years. As we expected they were a little colder than I would have liked in the morning but almost perfect. We got to Mineral Wells within time to pre-ride both the TT course and a lap around the circuit course. Both courses seemed to be nice and fast with the wind playing a part in both finishes. I warmed up for the circuit race on my trainer for about 30 minutes to get nice and ready for what I assumed would be a tough race.
