Peaks Coaching Group Athletes Step Up to the Podium!

Jeremiah Bishop – 1st US Pro XCT Bonelli Park, California
Jeremiah Bishop (Cannondale Factory Racing) took the win at the opening round of the US Pro XCT in Bonelli Park in California. He won the first major American cross country race of the season. The men's pro race was nothing short of a barn burner with over 80 men on the start line. Bishop came from behind after dropping a chain in the third lap, then after multiple position changes on the exciting final lap, Bishop punched up a steep climb to take the lead and the win!  Peaks Coach: Hunter Allen

Siong Hing 4th at Ironman New Zealand

Despite less than ideal weather conditions, Siong Hing finished his 4th Ironman Event on March 5th 2011 at Ironman New Zealand. Throughout the day, he and the rest of the Ironman athletes were tormented by rain and relentless winds. Despite being shy of his goal time, he felt that he finished the race in better shape than his previous two Ironman events. When asked how he felt immediately after the race he said he "Felt too good to have completed an Ironman... I didn't qualify for a bed in the medical tent."

Todd Baumeister – 4th Mason Lake Road Race

Todd Baumeister moved up a few places from his great 7th place in last weeks Mason Lake Road Race #1 to finish 4th this week in the Mason Lake Road Race #2. I think there is a win in Todds future.

Dave Guttenplan- Rutas de America

Dave Guttenplan lead his Chemstar team in the Rutas de America. Dave scored three top 20 finishes and picked up some great international experience in the 6 day UCI 2.2 category stage race in Uruguay.

Tom Soladay – Murrieta Stage Race

Tom Soladay kept the streak alive by finishing the Murrieta Stage Race even making it into the winning break on the final day. This shows that even though Tom lost a season of racing, he still has the drive of a bike racer. Once the legs return, he will be back where he was at the end of 2009.
