Menzies nets another in Charlotte

Karl Menzies (UnitedHealthcare p/b Maxxis) claimed victory in the Dilworth Criterium in Charlotte, his second of the USA Crits Speed Week, after he opened the series with the win in Athens last week.

Menzies capitalised on a strong lead-out from his teammates to outsprint Hilton Clarke (OUCH-Bahati Foundation) and Alexey Schmidt (Team Type 1).

"I had Johnny [Clarke] and Pinner [Andrew Pinfold] leading me out and Jake [Keough] on my wheel." said Menzies. "Pinner dropped me off and I had good acceleration out of the last turn. The finish is a bit of a power climb. I took off at the right time, maybe a bit earlier than the other guys were expecting."

Menzies' win capped of a strong performance by the UnitedHealthcare squad. Adrian Hegyvary and Matt Crane had launched subsequent late-race attacks, forcing OUCH-Bahati to chase down the moves as they worked to set up Hilton Clarke.

"Everyone has been racing really well this week." Menzies added. "I don't think we've done anything different the last two nights. We've just finished it off a bit better."
