The premier bicycle race in the Peoria area turns 25 this year. The Peoria Bicycle Club hosted the Morton Community Bank Cycling Classic on Saturday through the streets of Morton, IL. Nicolai Broechner from Denmark out-sprinted the field to win the day’s main event, run in triple-digit temperatures through the downtown course. Nine of the 42 riders in the field dropped out before the race ended, despite a “feed zone” that was added to this year’s event. High area finisher in the main event was Brett Bohanan of Washington, IL, who placed sixth. A junior rider from East Peoria, IL, Mitchell Gray, won the junior men’s 15-18 race. In the Masters 50+/60+ race, Gary Dyer, 54, from Eureka, IL placed second, behind Jeannie Kuhajek, 39, of Crystal Lake, IL.
