Race Report - Nocatee

The Masters 35+ team went up to Jacksonville this weekend and continued to ride solid. In the Stage race, the group stayed together and ZMotion remained in striking distance. In the Time Trial, we had Raife in 3rd and Steve in 6th making for a very exciting result in the Crit. Finally in the Criterium, Steve snuck into a break that stayed away giving him 4th for the Stage and 3rd overall in GC. Nice job guys.

Claudio gave this write up for the P12 team who kicked BUTT this weekend.
