Nick Friesen – 5th Place at Tumacocori Road Race
Nick started his 2011 racing season at the Tumacocori Road Race in Arizona. Nick finished 5th after attacking early and then having to work hard to bring back a late counter attack on the climb. A good start to the racing for Nick with tactics being the biggest factor in this weeks results.

Tom Soladay – Merco Cycling Classic Stage Race 62 in the GC out of 120 starters
And a big Welcome Back to Tom Soladay who did a great job of doing more than just surviving the Merco Cycling Classic Stage Race in California. Tom is on the way back from missing the entire 2010 season to illness. This is Tom's first race in over 18 months and apparently he still remembers how to race his bike finishing each day better than the one before to finish 62 on GC out of over 120 starters and he was about spend some time on the front for his team in the final stage. Great job Tom.

Alexandra Danforth - 3rd in Webster Roubaix
After surgery last fall on her foot, Alex came storming back and got 3rd at one of Florida’s toughest races ….a 9 mile circuit that has 2 ½ miles of hard packed dirt each lap…4 laps and 36 miles Alex hung tough and finished strong!
