The pavement up Alpine Hill is now a year old and apparently even a year takes a little toll. The winning times today failed to surpass last year's efforts across most fields despite perfect weather and no wind. Perhaps the air is a little denser in April compared to March... Although the times were slightly slower, familiar names ended up on top. Bryan Dobes (CRCA/Blue Ribbon-Tranlation.com) repeated his win from last year in the Men's 1/2 field in a time of 4:45 - 9 second down on his time last year. BrittLee Bowman (CRCA/Stan's NoTubes p/b EnduranceWerx) won the women's 1/2/3 field after last year winning the 3/4 field. Her time was 6:03. Jessica Meany (CRCA/Stan's NoTubes p/b EnduranceWerx) won the Women's Category 4 with a time of 6:01. Anthony Fatuzzo (CRCA/Velorigin Performance) repeated his win from 2012 in the men's Category 3 field in a time of 4:45 - 3 seconds slower than last year's time.
