‘Racers cracked on this hill
This photo sequence starts with challengers right on Russell Stevenson’s wheel, nearly touching it, then watch the gap open, their grimaces grow, and he never looks back. Russie is a Local Pro.
Watch the gap grow
As he rides out of focus, check the gap, and the Suffer Faces behind him. It’s a wheel and a half now.
Now it’s a bike length and he’s gone
Now further out of focus, the gap is a bike length and that grew to nearly a minute at the finish. Today Russie is flying to CO for a new job, more races, and I expect wins like this.
