Tour of the Res
Written by Velo Staff on 04th July 2017
A successful weekend for the team at the Tour of the Res.
2 days of savage racing actually brought out the best in the team.
Day 1 saw the guys working hard to get in the breakaway and to help launch Elliott up the road. Elliott Porter finished 14th putting him in good stead for a top 10 GC.
Sunday was all to play for and it was the aim to just go out there and race hard and to not miss the first breakaway of the day. All the guys were mixing it up all day and sharing the work load. Elliott rode fantastically to get himself into the main breakaway of the day. For a few laps he was the virtual race leader!
One Pro took control of the bunch and a select group came across to the breakaway. Elliott held tight and was able to pull of another top 15 on stage 2 which placed him 10th on GC.
With great team work, believing and not giving in the team placed 6th on the team series standings.
We are excited for the next few races in the series. More to come!
