The KHS-Maxxis JLVelo Cycling Team has continued its winning streak, with victories both at the LA Circuit Race, and the Temecula Grand Prix. Following the teams success at Sea Otter, the riders headed to Los Angeles to race the LA Circuit Race. With a packed field, Ulises Castillo, Eder Frayer and Fabrizio Von Nacher took control of the race and finished in style. They were able to hold off the charging field to place 1-2, with Fabrizio taking the win and Ulises finishing 2nd.
Fast forward to this past weekend, and the team lined up once again in pursuit of the win. The Temecula Grand Prix is a new addition to the race calendar and it did not disappoint. With high wind and temperatures cresting the 80s, the team had their work cut out for them. Toeing the line for the day would be Duban Sanchez, Eder Frayer, Ulises Castillo, Fabrizio Von Nacher and Efren Flores. With the numbers to the teams advantage, the riders had the ability to ride hard from the gun.
Duban, Efren and Eder turned the screws on the peloton which allowed Fabrizio to take a massive leap from the group where he spent over a dozen laps off the front solo.
However, the animated chase group was not satisfied with the move and Fabrizio was ultimately brought back. Teammate Ulises Castillo had waited patiently as they chasers brought his teammate back, knowing this would be his opportunity to seal the deal with a win. As the group gathered Fabrizio up, he was able to lead Ulises out for the win and finish a solid 3rd himself.
We would like to welcome Efren Flores back to racing, as he is fully recovered from the broken hand he suffered in February. It is great to have you back racing with the team!
