Luke Keough, racing for the UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling team, captured the 50 mile Chris Thater Memorial criterium this afternoon at Recreation Park in Binghamton.  Keough, the sprinter on Team UnitedHealthcare, out-raced another teammate, Carlos Alzate to clinch the victory.  Rafael A. Meran, racing for Foundation NYC, finished third.

On a beautiful and sunny afternoon Keough was able to secure the 30th win of the racing season for Team UnitedHealthcare.  Hilton Clarke, also from UnitedHealthcare, nabbed fourth place.  The pro men did 61 laps on the 1.3 kilimeter course around Rec park for a total of 50 miles.  The course was changed for this year’s competition shortening  the lap distance and providing more laps for spectators in and around the park to watch.

The men’s race wrapped up the two-day event.  Yesterday, women’s pro cycling competition was held and earlier today a 5K run was held as well.  This marked the 30th anniversary of the Chris Thater Memorial.  The race began as cycling only and was dedicated to the memory of Chris Thater, a student at Binghamton University , who was killed by a drunk driver while riding his bike.
