For the 4th year in a row, we headed to Boise, ID to race the NCC Boise Twilight Criterium on our way to Cascade Cycling Classic. This is a great event with an exciting atmosphere where our team has had great success each time we have competed in it. Sprinter and our top finisher on the day, Fabrizio Von Nacher, recounts his experience in the race:
“Boise twilight is always a fun race to do. I love the town and the people are great. I knew it was going to be an interesting race because there were a lot of good teams. I got a call-up so that made my start much more easier. Once the race started I stayed top ten most of the race, because that was the plan. Meanwhile my teammates Dave, Steven and Sergio were being aggressive and always on the moves, so I was not worried. When it came down to the last 10 laps that’s where my job stared. The plan changed when UHC went to the front with 30 min to go, it was a surprise because they normally wait for the last 15 min, but there was a break up the road and it was strong. So my job started earlier than planned. It was a constant fight for position for 30 minutes but I didn’t get over excited and I was patient. In the last two laps, it was super fast and I managed to get in a good position and sprint and be 7th.
I want to thank all my teammates, team sponsors, Paul and Joy for making all this possible!”
