Team Mountain Khakis shares their weekend successes.
See an excerpt from Team MK: “This past weekend we raced on two fronts; the young riders raced in regional events in the Southeast and the more experienced team began our national campaign in California.
Under the direction of Pat Raines, with mentoring from Adam Myerson, the youngsters scored a second place with Logan Loader at the Blythwood Criterium in Colombia, SC, behind journeyman sprinter Emile Abraham. The next day at the Forest Acres Criterium (also in Colombia), Isaac Howe scored his first win of the year in front of experienced international riders Emile Abraham and Thad Dulin. These are great results from the new Team MK riders whose average age is 20 years!
TMK's new Director, Jason Snow, entered the "A" squad in the Tour of Murrieta against Floyd Landis and Team OUCH, as well as other top teams coming off of the Tour of California.Expecting a "trial by fire" we were surprised by how well the guys performed coming directly off of only winter training. In Stage One, Tom Soladay made the day long break with eventual winner Chad Beyer (BMC) and in Stage Two, Eric Barlevav broke into the top ten showing that he is gaining speed and is soon to be in top form.
This weekend the team will race the San Dimas Stage Race in San Dimas, CA and the Uptown Greenville Criterium in Greenville, NC."
