The KHS-Maxxis-JLVelo Cycling Team had a fantastic showing at the North Star Grand Prix. The event spans 5 days and 6 stages, beginning with a 5 mile time trial. Chris Barton logged the fastest time of the team, landing just 2 seconds off of the podium in 6th place. From there, the team continued to improve on their stage finishes by animating the criteriums and road races, ultimately winning the penultimate stage on Sunday – the Stillwater Criterium.

The KHS-Maxxis-JLVelo returned to Tulsa Tough for the 5th year in a row. In 2014, Fabrizio Von Nacher and the team won the overall of the NCC event in an exciting finale on Cry Baby Hill. The 2015 installment of the race would prove to be just as exciting, with Von Nacher narrowly missing the top step of the podium on the final day. The team fielded a squad of 6 for the 3 stage omnium event. Brian McCulloch, Chris Barton, Ulises Castillo, Shawn Wayland, and Efren Flores raced each event with the hopes of helping Fabrizio gain the lead.

Chris Barton raced the event in 2013 with the team, and he was excited to return to the event this year.

“My fitness is much better than it was in 2013, so this year’s Tulsa Tough was much more enjoyable for me. That being said, I think the level of competition still caught me a bit off-guard the first night and forced me to step up my game fast!

My favorite part of Tulsa Tough is the fans. We went out each day and gave everything we had to the race, and the fans gave it right back. No words can describe the enthusiasm of the crowd on Crybaby Hill!” Read more
