Last day! Tough crit of 60 laps and about a kilometer in length. 180 degree turn on every lap. Things got off to a fast start with a few attacks that were brought back readily. About 15 laps in, Sean Weddell and Tyler Hawes (Team Globablbike) got away with a Jittery Joe's guy and one other. Within two laps they opened a gap of 24 seconds and managed to lap the field by about 10 to go!

Everything stuck together for the finish and the lapping group sprinted first. Tyler got 2nd and Sean 4th.

Final stats for the 2009 Tour of Ohio:

Tyler Hawes - 1st Collegiate Competition, 5th Overall, three top-10's
Tommy Smith - 3rd Collegiate Competition, 6th place stage 5
David Forkner - WINNER, Stage 1, 3 top-10's
Sean Weddell - WINNER, KOM Jersey, 3 top-10's
Jim Cunningham - 4th Overall, two top-10's
Craig McKinney - 2nd Collegiate Competition, 8th Overall, 2 top-10's

Josh Whitmore, Andre Vandenberg and Hoah Metzger were a tremendous help!
