Missoula Wednesday Night #3

Things are setting up nicely as Missoula Racers prepare for the weekend and Wild West Cross Kickoff.  Owen Gue, (Cycling House) re-captures the leaders jersey and looks to take the momentum into Sandpoint.  Also, coming into form, Toby Meierbachtol (Hellgate Cylery) put in a strong ride, even hoping over a fallen Gue at one point in the race.  On the ladies side, Jamie Terry (MT Alpha) had a breakout ride for this season, and we might see an appearance in Sandpoint.  On the masters side, Jeremy Lurgio rode in groups until there were no groups to ride with, super strong ride as he tries for that 40+ overall.  Watch out Eastern WA, and Idaho, Missoula's finest are coming for you this weekend!  Thunder call up is based on Wild West Series Standings in each category.
