Men Miss & Out

The Men Miss ‘n’ Out saw a huge field of 35 racers. The pace was very high right from the gun. Many of the sprinters didn’t last for long and some of the big names got eliminated early. Pro-riders Ben Jacques-Maynes (Bissell), Roman Kilun (OUCH) and Iggy Silva (Rock Racing) nearly made it to the end. The final came down to Jame Carney, Dan Holloway and Dave McCook. But it was really Carney and Holloway who took the sprint to the line with Carney nosing out Holloway.
