Tulsa Tough- Blue Dome Crit

The Saint Francis Tulsa Tough race is one of the best races in the country. Check out the Elevate KHS Pro Cycling team smash the first stage from this past weekends race. We will post stage two tomorrow and stage on Thursday, stay tuned!

Yackle Brothers Tackle the Missoula PROXCT/UCI Juniors Series

Over the weekend, Yackle Brothers Racing competed in 4 races: the Elite/Pro/Open STXC, the UCI Junior Series XCO, the 15-18 Junior STXC and the 15-16 Junior XC. We are happy to share that Yackle Brothers Racing stood tall at the end of the weekend with 3 podiums and an 8th in the Elite/Pro STXC!

Though both Nye (a 4th and a 3rd) and Jake performance was most impressive. Jake finished a close 2nd place, just 9 seconds behind the overall winner. Jake handily beat 35 of the 37 Nation’s best 17-18 year-olds. Jake led nearly the entire race, and won the critical sprint battle (1.5 minutes) for the final Singletrack descent. However, after a collision with that knocked Jake off course, he was forced to remount and bring his bike back on course. He descended hard, full gas, and closed the gap in a huge 2 minute effort. This unfortunately left him tapped for the impending sprint but we’re happy to report that he came in a very close 2nd! We are confident that Jake’s next Junior XCO Race at USA Cycling MTB Nationals will be one to watch.
