Jordan Cullen - 1st at Wisconsin State Road Race Cat 1/2
Jordan claimed title to the Wisconsin Cat 1/2 Road Race State Championship.  Although still 1 month shy of his 16th birthday, phenomenally Jordan dropped his break away companions and surged to a last lap win on the challenging State Championship road course.  The race turned out the be great prep for the upcoming National Championship since it combined a hilly course with 90 degree heat and high humidity. Jordan is riding great form as he prepares to compete in the 15-16 year old Junior National Championships in Augusta Georgia.
Peaks Coach: Gordy Paulson

Tim Valentine - 1st Place Tennessee TT State Championships Cat 1/2
Tim won the Tennessee Cat 1/2 Time Trial State Championship on a rolling,  challenging course. Tim took advantage of his climbing strength on the hilly Tennessee course to deliver one of his best TT rides so far this season. He must have had something left in the tank however, because he followed this fine TT performance up the next day with strong rides in two separate Criteriums.
