The Targetraining Professional Cycling Team is gearing up to tackle the Pro Cycling Tour races in Lancaster, Reading, and Philadelphia (USA) this week, putting its best riders into the fray.
"We have constructed teams to tackle the different racing that the Pro Cycling Tour throws at us," said Ken Mills, directeur sportif. "Last year Lancaster came down to a sprint in a breakaway so our roster is designed to compliment the different race scenarios that might develop through out the week."
Team Captain Frank Pipp is coming off of a 6th place overall at the US Crit Series as well as a 5th place at stage 2 of the Joe Martin Stage Race. Co-captain Anthony Colby is also racing well after a 4th place finish at the Tour of Gila in New Mexico.
"The racers have been training hard and living as a team at the Targetraining Team House in Westport, CT," said the team's head coach, Rick Crawford. "Never before have the guys been as fit and cohesive as a team. We are hoping that their fitness and trust in each other will produce top results at the demanding PCT races and the gruelling stage races that are ahead on the schedule."
The complete roster for the Commerce Bank Triple Crown events is as follows; Alejandro Acton, Josh Bezecny, Anthony Colby, Bill Elliston, Eneas Freyre, Dan Greenfield, Andy Guptill, Wes Hartman, Dustin MacBurnie, Frank Pipp, Matt Shriver.
