Hey @jessedanthony, thanks for letting me borrow and play on your bike for the last 3/4 of a lap at Stillwater. Probably need to work on my wheelie skills but at least that one guy was impressed. Not my best riding this past weekend at #USPro, but similar to this picture you have to rebound and have some fun. Next up it's the Team Time Trial National Championships followed up by Crit Nats on Sunday. Looking forward to trying to get some new jerseys with the @cylancecycling guys!
Another weekend another race. This time for the stars and bars 🇺🇸. The Americans of @cylancecycling are in Knoxville ready to take on #USPro. The Time Trial is Saturday afternoon with @shuntergrove, myself, and @kylemurphycyclist, then the three of us plus former national champ @ericdmarcotte for the Road Race on Sunday. The courses both look hard and fun and it should be a great weekend battling it out. As Dave T would say, up, up, up!
The @northstargrandprix is over and we're hanging out in East Troy, WI prior to heading to Knoxville, TN for the #USPro TT and RR national championships. A couple days spinning the legs past lakes and big open farmland. Some of the guys not doing US Pro are out ripping it up at @tourofamericasdairyland criterium series. NorthStar offered some good victories, but also left a lot of room for improvement and missed opportunities. Time ahead to see if we can make up for it.
On the attack at the end of the Cannon Falls RR here at the @northstargrandprix. Team did a great job all day covering moves and riding well in the windy sections. In the finale @oklangaribay, @shuntergrove, and I got in a 15 man group dangling off the front. Took a couple digs and rode to stay away from the chasing peloton. Needed a couple more bullets to chase the win as Orlando ended up 8th. Plenty to take away and adjust for future races. I finished s.t. And moved up a couple places in GC but tonight we'll try and deliver @juswilliamz a win in the criterium and then chase more stage wins over the weekend. On a sour note, @scottylaw91, got in a fight with a dog that jumped into the peloton and had to abandon. He cracked his helmet, got some stitches, and road rash but is smiles and doing alright. All things considered he came away well off for hitting the deck, but we'll miss him in the next couple stages.
📷: @biffstephens Trying to rip it up on Cry Baby Hill at @tulsa_tough. First time at the event and had a blast. Great atmosphere and fun courses plus it helps when the team tears it up. Tomorrow no more reflecting as @northstargrandprix starts with a short morning TT and an evening Crit. Back in action!
Got to our host family for @northstargrandprix and an awesome welcome sign and bike. Key things to note not in picture, Cylance bottles (taped on of course) and an old flip phone as the bike computer. Jeff and Claudia are amazing folks that took care of the team last year. After the long drive they had snacks ready for us on arrival and cooked up an awesome dinner of grilled chicken with rice and green beans then topped it off with some amazing homemade pumpkin bread! Hosts are usually nice, but these folks are over the top amazing. Setting up for a good week of racing with the @cylancecycling boys.
