The East Village Criterium on Sunday, August 30th was the final event in the Iowa Cup competition for 2009.

Going into the event, Jon Nelson held a narrow lead in the Masters 40+ standings over teammates Scott Wall and Sean Loomis (Colorbiotics). Cody McCullough and Clark Priebe both leant their support to Jon's cause in the combined 30+/40+ race but it was not to be. Jon reported he didn't have the good legs he needed due to inconsistent training as of late. He finished 8th in the race but a stronger Loomis took 2nd and Wall 6th to move ahead in the final standings. Clark Priebe won the 40+ race and Cody was 2nd in 30+.
