Let’s set the stage – in 2016 we won the Redlands Classic, it was the first win by a Canadian rider in the 34 year history of the race. We started this year’s Redlands with high ambitions, balanced with pragmatism.
We came in with a revamped team, focused on youth & development. 4 of our Redlands roster were new riders – all U23, and Nick Zukowsky is only 18! Nigel Ellsay continues to develop as a solid GC contender – 7th at Joe Martin, 12th in Gila and now 6th here at Redlands. Our new Jamis TT bikes are wicked fast – we placed 4 riders in the top 15 in the stage 1 time trial.
We’re just missing a bit to dictate our destiny… and the heat isn’t helping.
