March-April 2017 Rider of the Period - Shane McGuire

04/23/2017, 8:15pm PDT
By Lindsay Howard

Shane McGuire started out racing as a club member in 2014. He became a team rider when he upgraded to cat 4 in June 2015. He spent the 2016 season as a cat4 getting some good minor results gaining points towards a further upgrade to cat 3. His 2017 season started off with a bang, topping off his much needed points with results in races such as 6th at Snelling RR, 7th at Bariani and 2nd at Santa Cruz crit. He is proving to be a bit of an all rounder, is a great team member and leader, has a relaxed and friendly attitude and always gives 100%.
