Wow, what a race! Barack Obama made an appearance, the rain held off, there were blue skies throughout and it came down to the final lap.

Four teams were consistently ahead of the pack (Delta Gamma, Teter, Delta Sigma Pi, and Kappa Alpha Theta). With around 25 laps to go, Teter's Sarah Rieke broke away from the pack and took about a half-lap lead. But the three teams came back hard to make it a four-way race for the rest of the time.

After 90 laps, Kappa Alpha Theta held the lead, followed by Delta Sigma Pi, Delta Gamma, and Teter. After 95 laps, the two leaders were the same but Teter had passed Delta Gamma. But Delta Gamma kept coming and each team set up for a final sprint with four laps to go. The pack stayed close until Delta Gamma's Jess Lander pulled away from the pack at lap 98. Lander held off Teter's Sarah Rieke and cruised through the finish line for the victory. The unofficial finishing times for the top 5 went as follows:

1) Delta Gamma (1:12.20) 2) Teter (1:12.22) 3) Delta Sigma Pi (1:12.23) 4) Kappa Alpha Theta (1:12.26) 5) Kappa Delta (1:12.32)

Rounding out the top 10 were Wing It, Cycledelics, Pi Beta Phi, Alpha Omicron Pi, and Alpha Gamma Delta.
