This was one amazing weekend! For Metromint Cycling to travel to a huge stage race in SoCal with some top racers traveling to this race...it was huge. The fact that we placed someone in the top 10 (or green jersey) for every field we entered is remarkable, and shows that teamwork is paying off. For some of the cat 4s, this was their first stage race...so it was also a great learning experience for them to ride a 3-stage event featuring an uphill individual time trial (race against the clock), a challenging road race, and a very fast, short criterium.
