Just two weeks after winning the overall IN state time trial championship, Gary Painter went into the state RR with great form. Although he is qualified to race the 55+ race, he wanted strong competition, so, he raced in the 35+ race instead. About halfway into the race, Gary got into a three man break with one teammate who was racing 45+ and another 35+ rider. Coming into the finish, his teammate attacked, but with 2 miles to go, he was caught. The other rider attacked several times trying to drop Gary, but couldn't do it. With 1 k to go, Gary counter attacked and rode away for the win. His teammate came in 3rd, winning the 45+ race. Great team effort and another state championship for Gary.
