The S-Team Heads South...Way South
Symmetrics Fueled By FarmPure jumps back into racing this weekend with the 14-day Tour of Venezuela, from August 27-September 9.
The race is the team's next stop on the UCI America Tour, led currently by Symmetric's Svein Tuft. Symmetrics Cycling Fueled By FarmPure heads to South America with the goal of winning stages, and the overall. In fact, the first stage is an 18.8km TT which should suit the team's strong time triallists - notably Tuft and Eric Wohlberg. Following the TT there are several stages of flat riding, so whoever wins the TT needs to have a strong team to defend. The entire stage race runs 2200km.
Heading to Venezuela for the S-Team are: Tuft, Wohlberg, Cam Evans, Jake Erker, Jeff Sherstobitoff and Brandon Crichton. This will be the beginning of a heavy race period, as four of these riders will head straight north to contest the Tour of Missouri immediately afterwards.
The team will do its best to provide daily updates for those following the
action in Canada.
