Hat trick for Jacob Keough at Speedweek

Purcell grabs her first win

Jeniffer Purcell won her first race in the Speed Week USA CRITS Series after overcoming Laura Van Gilder (Mellow Mushroom) and the ever consistent Christina Gokey-Smith.

Anne Simplonius and Laura Van GIlder animated the race early on, with each making solo moves early on in the race. Van Gilder was rewarded with a prime for her efforts, but her exertion may well have made her less powerful in the final sprint to the line. Purcell was strongest in the dash to the line and took the first win for her Rooster p/b Edge Composite Wheels team.

UnitedHealthcare dominate men's race

The UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling Team continued to dominate the men’s races at Speed Week, with Jake Keough and Hilton Clarke finished first and third respectively in the 7th Annual Spartanburg Regional Classic in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

Keough took his third win of the season and it was the sixth win and 18th podium for the team.

"The team rode extremely well tonight. I felt super strong and my sprinting legs are just starting to come around,” Keough said. “We are now dialling in the lead-out and making minor tweaks to perfect it. The guys on this team work so hard every race to put one of us in a position to deliver a victory and I'm glad I was able to do that tonight."

The UnitedHealthcare team began lining out the race in the final ten laps. Other teams tried to take control but the blue train set up Keough perfectly.

"We saw other teams throwing quite a bit at us late in the race, especially Kenda/5-hour Energy and Exergy," said team director Mike Tamayo. "I can't say enough about how these guys just keep coming together. We really have something special here. This unit consistently does what is required of them and when you do that, good things happen."
