Week 2: M1 Racing covers Bethel & Ninigret

It's week TWO of the 2008 road season.. and Millwork One Racing attended the same two events with the same four participants. One small difference: Murat turned his attention from Bethel to Ninigret and accompanied Brendan in a very high powered field on a notoriously windy day on the airstrip. Gusts of 40 or so miles per hour made it a requirement to get out of the saddle in order to break 15 miles per hour.. Brendan and Murat have both covered their respective experiences on Sunday. Michael and Scotty have also given us some reporting which will fill in the blanks.. Long story short, Millwork One Racing scored a couple of top 10 finishes at Ninigret this weekend. Next on the M1 radar: Wells Avenue Criterium in Newton Mass. M1 Racing will put all it's eggs in one basket this Sunday.. Stay tuned for reporting from Week 3!

Week One: Four Races, One Top Ten

M1 Racing's Scott Sullivan has made his mark upon the March 2nd Ronde de Bethel Criterium in Bethel, CT by taking a 10th place finish in the very well attended Cat 3/4 event. Michael Samartano raced in the 40+ and earned himself a respectable 19th place. Murat tested the legs in the Pro-Am event and proved convincingly that his legs are over due for a solid week of rest. Brendan Hanrahan was a participant in the year's first Ninigret Criterium in Charlestown, RI and finished in the main field, which was lapped by a pair of riders which included Adam Sullivan.
The Bethel Series continues this weekend and M1 Racing will be there again thanks to Michael and Scott while others will race at Ninigret Park on Sunday. Stay tuned.

The M1 Racing Team has some new bloggers! Scott, Brendan, Michael/Lynn, and Murat have personal websites which we encourage you to visit. See the sidebar for links to their blogs.
