Jorge Pont, is the rider of the month for May 2016. Jorge joined the AVRT squad last year as a CAT 4 rider and is racing this year as a 45+ cat 4. Previously, despite competing strongly in cyclocross races, Jorge had never earned an upgrade point or stood on a podium in a road race.
This year, he has flipped a switch, achieving podiums or upgrade points at Bariani (4th), Sea Otter (3rd), Berkeley Hills (5th) and Cat’s Hill (6th). He has shown his strength by placing well in notoriously difficult hilly races and in difficult conditions (Bariani), and is always at or near the front. He has also helped in races with the Elite 4s working as a domestique and is well on his way to upgrading to the 3s.
For showing excellent all around performance and improvement, Jorge is our May rider of the month
Congratulations to Dirk Bergstrom (our fearless Egan Ride leader), Lindsay Howard (Peets Ride leader), and Richie Vos (AVRT member)! The contest ended with a tie between these three. They each win $100 to spend in our team store at Voler.
Thomas Lane, also known as TJ, is the rider of the month for March 2016. TJ joined the AVRT squad this year as a CAT 3 rider. TJ comes from a collegiate racing background, having previously raced with Stanford.
He has shown his strength by placing 5th in his first AVRT race at Snelling, and coming 2nd at Bariani. It was at Bariani where he not only faced epic conditions, but formed a 2-man break which eventually became 5, and then held on for 2nd. More recently TJ placed 3rd at Turlock road race, again in soggy conditions.
TJ is quickly racking up points as he proves to be a strong all-round rider, and looks set for upgrading to the 2's team in the coming races with continued good performances.
George is starting off the 2016 race season strong! He won the Coppertown Circuit Race in the M55+ and followed that up placing 3rd in the M45+ on the same day! He also took 2nd at the CCCX Seaside Bayview Circuit Race. Here is his report on the COppertonw victory:
