BMC puts two on the podium, Louder again atop GC.

Tracking the moves.  Are the only races that make a difference across the pond?  Nope!  There are some very real races here in the US. How tough are some of these races?  Tough!  When you have about 200 folks racing on narrow roads, you best be on a team called to the front.  Many of these teams have been hard at it, even raced in the Amgen  Tour of CA.  

Many teams live in areas that don't allow them to train this time of year. With such a strong field, there is little or no room to move up, so the best you can hope, is to get to go to the race. Even Floyd Landis has DNF a few times. If your team has to start at the rear of the field, it can be next to impossible to make ground.  

Redlands, CA, has BMC on the podium, as Jackson Stewart (BMC) took the stage crit in front of Andrew Pinfold (OUCH) and Brent Bookwalter (BMC).  BMC's Jeff Louder finished in the same time to maintain his overall lead.

Why is this of concern?  We have these names in our data base. How else can you track what makes a difference?  It can takes years for a person to reach the top.  The Euro races well known , and yes there are some very tough races.  But we have some tough races here in the US. So we are very pleased with super results like Brent Bookwalter who was serviced by Andy Applegate, a WN & Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish dealer in Asheville, NC.  And then on the other side of the country, Jeff Louder was serviced by Craig Upton in CA.  We even had the chance to work with Jeff's dad here in Boise, ID Ken Louder because Jeff loves his setup so much he influenced his dad to try it. That's a good testimonial to show you can get your bike dialed "coast-to-coast" by a certified WN & Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish.  Play the game better!
