In the Men's SuperTour 10k classic race, nobody got closer to Kris Freeman than Chris Mallory of UNH, who finished just under three minutes back. In third was Ian Murray of Nova Scotia.
Freeman treated the race as a chance to experiment with his pacing: “I went a little too hard out of the start, tried to lactate up and see how I could survive…” Today's winner will be racing in tomorrow's sprint competition as well.
