The Elevate-KHS Pro Cycling Team had a fantastic campaign at the 2017 North Star Grand Prix. With 6 stages spanning 5 days, this PRT event is one of the most challenging on the calendar. Beyond the intensity of the event is the challenge of the technical aspects the courses boast.

Beginning with a 5 mile time trial, the general classification was set with Cory Lockwood and Innokenty Zavyalov 7th & 8th going into stage 2. The St. Paul Criterium was on a different course this year and the excitement increased as the race was restarted with just a few laps remaining. The team remained focused and Alfredo Rodriguez sprinted to an impressive victory ahead of Justin Williams – Cylance and Ty Magner from Hincapie.
The Menomonie Road Race, stage 3,  found the Elevate-KHS riders at the front of the peloton, with the height of excitement coming from a late day breakaway of power houses Connor Brown and Cory Lockwood. With over 2 minutes on the field with 40K remaining, the duo committed to going 100% which forced the other teams to chase. Although they were caught before the finishing circuits, their efforts allowed Alfredo Rodriguez to sprint for another podium, finishing 3rd on the day. Connor Brown was also awarded the Most Aggressive Rider Jersey at the end of the stage.

The Elevate-KHS Pro Cycling Team had a great campaign at Tulsa Tough this past weekend. Covering three days, the criterium omnium is one of the favorite within the country. Each course is unique with technical aspects and the added incentives for racers of large primes and prize purses. Friday night hosted the first event of the weekend, the Blue Dome Criterium. The promotors ran the course in the opposite direction than previous years and with over 150 pro men in the field, the tight course and nerves of the peloton came together to create not one but two crashed large enough to neutralize the field. As the the minutes ticked by and our athletes stayed out of the fray, it was apparent the finale would come down to a sprint.
