Another fantastic weekend of racing for our people! Our athletes show up ready to race for those that matter the most:
Jake and Colton Peterson
The dynamic family duo are competing in the WORS series this year and finished strong in the 2nd leg in Iola, WI. Colton, the younger bro, scored an 8th overall and 2nd in his age group in the category 2 race.
Older brother Jake was 13th overall and 4th in his age group in the hyper-competitive pro/cat 1 field.
Nicolai has been on fire in the UCI Europe Tour. Yesterday’s opening stage WIN of the An Post Ras capped off a streak of 4 UCI victories from the last 7 races! Along with a sprint point that he took along the way, this latest effort has him in the leader’s jersey by 9 seconds after the first two stages. You can see highlights from stage one and then follow along during this week here
TBC/BH Elite Team
TrainingBible Cycling and Team Bicycle Heaven’s elite road team also scored a win at the Psimet Omnium in exciting fashion. We screwed the pooch a bit on Saturday tactically, and fortunately nothing that couldn’t be re-routed over tacos after the race. The team stuck together and came through the next day. Every point over the 2 race event counted with Michael Dutczak coming through on Sunday’s challenging (giant hill!) criterium circuit in Fox River Grove, IL … and with a lot of help from Paul Hartner. Just in time for these guys as they get ready to head out to the Quad Cities to contest the Memorial Day Race Series next weekend.
Andy Heuser is back from college in a BIG way. The euphonius bike racer laid down solid performances on Saturday and Sunday at the same Psimet Fox River Omnium to take the overall. Great to see him all dialed in on the bike again and we’re expecting more great results this summer.
