Bicycle Blues & BBQ Omnium Win for Zavyalov!

Inno Omnium Win

Innokenty Zavyalov has been racing with the KHS-Maxxis-JLVelo Cycling team for over a month now and is racking up great results for the program. After competing at the North Start Grand Prix, he and Duban Sanchez raced Tour of America’s Dairyland in Wisconsin, then headed to Iowa for an omnium event. We caught up with Inno and he reported on his overall win at the Bicycles Blues & BBQ Omnium.

“Between the Tour of America’s Dairyland and racing Boise Twilight, Duban Sanchez and I decided to stay in the Midwest and race the Bicycle Blues and BBQ Omnium in Clear Lake, Iowa. This is a growing race and I was coming back as last year’s winner. I was excited when I found out that a few big names where attending including Eric Thompson, Tom Zirbel who was born in Clear Lake, and Bryan Gomez who was there with a few team mates. Before I go into the details of the race I need to thank the race organizer Tim Putnam, who takes really great care of the racers and his hard work can be seen in the quality of the events. I would not be surprised if this race gets much bigger next year.

This Omnium is a 3 race, two day event and as the name suggests, it is part of a festival of Blues music and barbeque. Read more

Congratulations to Eder Frayre. Mexico is allowed only one rider to participate in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. Eder has been chosen to be the first alternate behind Luis Lemus for the one Olympic road race spot. The team and all our sponsors are very proud of Eder and his commitment to do his best to receive the sole Olympic spot. Ultimately, the committee did not select him which was a disappointment, but he will be ready in the event he will need to fill the spot for Lemus. Eder’s next race for the team will be the Cascade Cycling Classic in Bend, OR later this month.

Eder Frayre had a great race at the Mexican National Championship Road Race, with teammate Ulises Castillo close behind in 5th. Both riders held prestigious positions on the Mexican Olympic Long Team list, which placed a lot of pressure and excitement on the event. Newly added teammate Alfredo Rodriguez also raced the event, each rider wearing the jersey of their official states. Alfredo raced hard in the breakaway as Eder and Ulises bided their time before the 22 mile penultimate climb. Eder suffered some bad luck, however held on to fight for 3rd after over 5.5hrs of racing in high temperature on a very challenging course. Ulises was close behind in 5th. Congratulations to winner Luis Lemus on your victory and Olympic team selection.
