The Clarence-Rockland Classic, presented by Ride with Rendall provided the first opportunity of the season for Nine2FivePro to get on a start line. The conditions were pretty tough, mimicking what we've recently seen over in the European Spring Classics: cold, cold, cold. Nine2FivePro had 11 guys on the start line ready to prove their mettle on the rough roads of Clarence-Rockland.
Bringing home the best result of the day was Doug, finishing in the lead group with a 7th place finish, showing that he's put in the hours over the winter, even though he's got the new responsibility of being Dad. Way to go Doug!
Also showing some good form were Jake and Ryan, two guys who also have their hands full on the home front, but clearly doing their homework during the winter to get some hard time in on the pedals.
Other Nine2FivePros who were willing to suffer to represent the team were Warren, Graham Page, Chris, Hans, Rich, Adam, Gerald, and Greyburns. Pretty decent turnout despite the nasty conditions.
