Joe Martin Stage Race Final Update

Joe Martin Stage Race ended with some bright and not-so-bright notes for Team Globalbike. On the good side, Ben Miller finished 12th on GC, Alan Tripp 32nd and Josh Miller in the 60th spot.

Saturday 5/9/09, 92 mile Road Race -- Andre Vandenberg rode the race efficiently, moved to the front and sprinted for 14th. All finished with the main field but for myself coming out at 40 miles in... Simply didn't have the legs for it. I know what I did wrong and how to improve upon it (and will!).

Sunday 5/10/09, 60 minute Crit -- Three of the five starters from our team finished. Ben Miller unfortunately crashed in the last lap clipping a pedal breaking his seat-stay in half and injuring his right shoulder rather badly... His finishing time was that of the group he was in as it was the last lap preserving his 12th GC spot. A trip to the hospital afterwards wasn't so much fun yet he is okay with no broken bones just soft tissue damage that will heal on its own. Alan Tripp finished the crit in 26th place earning 32nd on GC.
