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. 

Sincerely,

Marc Brandt
