Peaks Coach and Montclair Bikery rider Bill Brunner fought for the Silver Medal in NJ 55+ State Road Championships. Bill spent the long day in the saddle trying to connect with a successful break but the field approached the final miles intact. Attacks were firing off left and right with the usual suspects arriving at the front for the mile drag to the finish. Bill searched for the right wheel as the speed jumped with 300 meters to go. Brian Gristick set a blistering pace that no one could challenge and captured the Gold. Coach Bill fended off the final assault and crossed the line for Silver.
