Missoula Riders head to Valley of the Sun
Missoula riders Tamara B, Ivy A, and Josh Nacho Tack will be attending The Valley of the Sun Stage Race in Phoeniz, AZ. The race kicks off Friday with a flat 13 mile TT. Saturday is a circuit race with a little hill each lap and Sunday is the criterium. Josh will be racing against second squads from Ouch, Bissell, and Rock Racing to name a few. The first team squads will be in Cali. If you remember, this is the race Ben Kneller nearly won last year with his killer TT skills. He crashed in the crit and broke his collarbone. The MSU grad will be back at it this year, and is a favorite for the time trial. Tamara was on the podium last year, and steps her game up this year racing in the cat 1/2's. T has been riding well this winter and should have much problem. I'll try to keep tabs on our Montana racers, but check www.cyclingnews.com.
