Brandon scored two second place finishes, this one atop Mt. Bachelor, and a 6th overall in GC.
Jess got barley nipped at the line and took second at the Downton Criterium after her TT in the morning on Saturday.
Julia guest rode for the Canyon Bicyles – Shimano pro team in her first race as a 2. She had some unfortunate luck that saw a screw go through her wheel during stage 3, ending her weekend a bit early. We can all attest the Giesch still had fun!
Not a bad drive, albeit 12 hours long…
Racing in the mountains with scenery like this, we’ll be back next year!
Tomorrow, Tucker is racing the San Rafael Twilight (or Sunset as it is now known) criterium in Marin County. His form is on point, look for him to sneak up on some NorCal hitters and grab a #FigFast podium!
Bbakes also scored his final upgrade, fourth of the season, into the 1st. This is FMBR’s 11th of the season.
Patterson Pass Road Race next weekend as well…stay tuned!
