The all-volunteer CRCA Board would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of the racers and spectators that joined us for the eighth annual Zach Koop Memorial Criterium at Orchard Beach. While we didn't quite get the blue skies we were hoping for we had a dry and action packed day of racing with lots of fun during the free kids races and the Big Wheels races to raise money for CRCDF.

Results for the Zach Koop Memorial Criterium are now online at USA Cycling. The podiums for the elite fields follow below - following some very exciting racing in both fields our Elite Men and Women Champions were repeats from the 2017 edition of the race.
We hope to see everyone this coming weekend at the CRCA Lucarelli & Castaldi Bear Mountain Classic that also serves as the New York State Road Race Championship (as well as selective New Jersey State Championships). Registration is available on Bikereg.
