Looking to see how the Chesco-tuned legs would fair back in New England, the MetLife-NorEast Cycling boys had some tune up racing for the upcoming Beverly Grand Prix. Coming off of a strong 6th place performance at the Cyclonauts Racers Criterium in CT by Landen on Saturday, the team looked to continue to put it together at the New Britain criterium. Fast, easy corners, a P/1/2/3 race make this event particularly dangerous. Unfortunately, this latest addition did not disabuse us of this notion. An early crash claimed friend of the program Jay Robbins, as general argy-bargy kept the rest of the field on edge for the next 38 laps. Making all of the significant moves the MetLife-NorEast boys made all of the important selections, but with 8 to go it was clear that it was to be a field sprint. Free-styling through the last couple of laps, avoiding a terrible crash by Keith Kelly (heal up buddy!), Peter came out of the last corner in decent position with Luciano not far behind. Unfortunately, the distance from the line proved too much for the fast charging Pavan and Bell. Nonetheless, netting two top tens (4th Bell, 8th Pavan) bodes well for the upcoming races.
