A Note From Marc Brandt:
1977 Cat's Hill
I won the 1-2 race in 1977. I was and still am grateful to the promoters of the race and to all who contributed their time and effort to such a memorable event in my youth. I broke away during the middle of the race got reeled in but recovered and opened a gap at the top on the last lap and came around the last corner fast breaking away. As I recall, I finished alone with both arms up in the air and the crowd pretty exicted.
It was fun and I enjoyed putting on a good show. Also, there was the actress who had played the love interest in the film "Breaking Away" who gave away the winner's trophy. I have a nice plaque from the race and fond memories.
