Franklinton Crit!

I typically don't start the Sandbagging callouts until cross season, but sometimes you just have to do it. I had nothing to do on Sunday so I decided to head down to the Franklinton crit. When figuring out what time to head down there, I saw Mr. Aidan Seufert registered for the Cat 5 race! Wait, isn't he like a 2 or 3 in cross? Mr. Red Hook Crit? This motivated me to wake up early to make it in time for the Cat 5 race.

I rolled down to the race with plenty of time to drink a beer and see the start of the race. Every lap, I would see Mr. Seufert 2nd, 3rd, 4th wheel, but never up front doing any work. Typical sandbagger tactics. Needless to say, what I figured would happen, happened. Mr. Seufert easily took a win and did it in douchbaggery fashion by sprinting as hard as he could with no one behind him.

Here's the video.

Mr. Seufert, you really need to look up when you sprint. Otherwise you'll run into the back of someone who is much faster than you and its gonna be a bad time.

And here is the glorious podium shot!

So after the Cat 5 race, word on the street was Mr. Seufert was completely satisfied with his stealing-candy-from-a-baby sandbagged cat 5 race and didn't want to race again. Only with an investor paying his way into the 4/5 race, was he convinced to toe the line again.

The 4/5 race was much of the same, sitting in the top 2-6 positions. Note how I said 2-6, not top 6 since I didn't see him see the wind at all in the race. Witnessed some sketchy dive bombing and wheel chopping on Josh Direen, his Columbus rival, but Mr. Seufert couldn't hold him off. In fact, a new face in the race scene from Athens, took the top step of the podium.

Well there you have it. The first installment of Ohio Sandbagger 2014. There will be more to come!
