The team found some great results this past month at both the inaugural Memorial Day Classic Stage Race and the 57th annual Nevada City Classic, winning four stages and the overall at the first, and placing 5th at the latter.
At the Memorial Day event, rider James Piccoli stole the show winning three of the four stages and the overall after finishing 2nd behind teammate Mario Zamora in the final stage, a 75 minute criterium. With just a single lap remaining in the criterium, the duo of Piccoli and Zamora lapped the field, securing the top 2 spots while Pacific Premier Bank’s Rex Roberts sprinted in ahead of the field to cap of a 1-2-3 finish for the team.
A few weeks later, at the 57th annual Nevada City Classic, Mario Zamora showed off his strength by finishing an impressive 5th on one of the most challenging circuits in American Cycling. Won by multiple past American cycling superstars including the only US born rider to win the Tour De France Greg LeMond, the Nevada City Classic is perhaps the most exciting and spectacular event on the US Calendar.
As the team looks ahead to the summer schedule, expect to see continued great results starting Friday June 23rd at the 5-stage Baker City Classic in Oregon!
