The fast finishers had their day in the second stage of the Tour de Quarantine, which finished with a flat, high-speed run-in and the bunch sprint pundits expected. None could top Trailer Guy, who overcame late-race cramps to take the stage win.
Trailer Guy’s victory salute was his trademark peace sign.
Beach Cruiser and White Hat crossed the line in second and third, six seconds back. In a surprising turn of events, Lady Wearing Adidas Track Pants finished fourth.
“It was a race? I didn’t know,” Trailer Guy said after the stage, clearly mocking his competitors. “I just go to Costco,” he added.
Trailer Guy surged early, closing quickly on the trio of Beach Cruiser, White Hat, and Lady Wearing Adidas Track Pants, before cramps hit. After taking a moment to recompose himself, he surged again. Beach Cruiser led out the sprint but faded, leaving a gap up the left side that Trailer Guy was only too happy to capitalize on.
Overnight leader eBike Lady was nowhere to be seen in the fast finale.
