The day's final race, the 1,2,3 race was animated early by Randy Reichardt, Vitamin Cottage, who gained an early advantage over the chasing field. When he was caught, a select group of leaders formed. Halfway through the race, Dickey attacked the field and a chase group of Reichardt, Bryan Moritz, Bikes 2 You, and Jared Osterloh, Zealous Racing was formed. Dickey remained solo for the victory with Moritz outsprinting Osterloh and Reichardt for 2nd.

I thought this was news worthy since this is the last race Dewey did before the USADA showed up at his home for drug screening which he refused for complicated reasons related to his long medical history and the Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) for some medicines he is on. This is nicely chronicled on Steve Tillford's Blog as well as ChicagoBikeRacing.Com. Evidently the application process can be rather lengthy and he didn't receive his exemption until just a few days after the USADA wanted to test him.Obviously, this is a hot topic lately in the cycling community and Peloton Star will do it's part in keeping riders abreast of any news here in the Midwest.
If you find yourself in the position of needing to take a drug for medicinal purposes that are on the "banned list", the USADA has all the information and forms you and your doctor need to apply for a Therapeutic Use Exemption.
