Juniors Racing

Race Report and Results: Louisville Criterium, Louisville, CO, Sunshine Hill climb, Boulder, CO, North Boulder Park Crit, Boulder, CO - Vic's Espresso Juniors
The last couple of weekends, 3 of our Juniors have been mixing it up in the Men's fields. Zack Gould, who is in the 13-14 junior field, raced the men's category 4 at Sunshine HC, North Boulder Park Crit, and Louisville Crit. This is a big stepup at this age, but it's great experience for getting the feel for the big pack. Zack also placed 6th(I think, it's not posted yet) in the cat 4 TT at Superior Friday.

Alden Lowney has been mixing it up in the Men's cat 3 fields since last year. He is comfortable at the front of the race, hard as nails, and a big result is going to come real soon. After a nice 12th place finish at Sunshine, he unfortunately crashed out of the NOBO Park crit and destroyed his front wheel.

Brandon Henry just upgraded to cat 3, and he has started with a bang. He followed a 6th place at Sunshine with a 4th place at the Louisville Crit yesterday. He rode a smart well positioned race and showed sprinting legs by accelerating up to the finish and was a curb pinch away from second. His climbing ability and acceleration is a great combination to have to win races.

Next weekend is the mini classic, a stage race for juniors!
