Tulsa Tough – 2nd Overall for Rodriguez

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.

Alfredo Rodriguez was able to sprint to a close second at the end of the 60 minutes of racing. This placed him 2nd overall in the Omnium Points going into the second stage on Saturday.

The Brady Arts District Criterium took place Saturday evening with a bit more day light than the day prior. The festivities around the course had been going on all day, so the fans were at their peak of excitement to cheer on the racers as they climbed the hill past the infamous Sound Pony Bar. The team worked hard to keep Alfredo safe, cover any threatening moves that could potentially gain traction up the road, and ultimately set him up for the final sprint.

At the end of the 80 minutes of racing, Alfredo finished 3rd and maintained his second place overall in the Omnium, thanks to the hard work and commitment of the entire team.

Cry Baby Hill on Sunday was the final race of the event and it is always a favorite of the riders. With a punishing climb each lap up Cry Baby Hill, the threat of rain, and over-partied fans, the stage never disappoints. Going into the race, Alfredo maintained his 2nd place overall and the team committed to making the race as hard as possible as it would take a break of wills to move into 1st place at the end of the 80 minutes of racing.

Connor Brown and Nick Torraca animated the race from the gun, landing in this solid 3 man breakaway that remained a threat through the middle of the race. As they were reeled in the team was ready to pounce and countered with Brian McCulloch represented in the next move. The race is one of attrition and the field was beginning to dwindle. Groups of one and two kept attempting to break free of the peloton and as the final laps were ticking down, one rider got free solo. He went on to win the race and Alfredo finished 4th in the final sprint to take 5th on the day. This performance solidified his 2nd Place Overall for the omnium weekend.
