We won four stages, second in two stages and fifth in one stage (broken derailleur) finishing second overall in our division by 1 minute and 44 seconds. The race was incredible. We were the highest finishing US team, the highest finishing unsupported team and ended up in the top ten overall. The competition was fierce with former Canadian Olympians Andreas Hestler (Atlanta '96) and Seamus McGrath (Athens '04) winning the overall race. Thanks to you I was in a position to win. Unfortunately at the beginning of Stage 6 Davey Moore, my partner, broke his rear derailleur causing me to pull him for 40 K and we ended up losing over 20 minutes that stage. Thanks again!!!
